A total of 24 manufacturers of prefabricated and solid houses were examined in the “ House Compass 2019”. The ranking was first published in the Print 6/2019. In cooperation with renowned partners such as KPMG Law, Sentinel Haus Institut, Tetralog Systems and TÜV Rheinland, the four categories of information & service, contract & law, healthy living and quality & control were tested.

In the “Information & Service” category, the consulting company Tetralog Systems examined, among other things, how informative the website is and how informative the brochure material is. Two thirds of the providers offer the possibility to configure a dream home online, but the navigation and information architecture of websites are often in need of improvement. In the “Contract and Law” category, the law firm KPMG Law examined how consistently the manufacturers implemented the new building law in 2018 and how well customers are informed about their rights. In the “healthy living” category, the Sentinel Haus Institut (SHI) and TÜV Rheinland determined how the companies use low-emission building materials, contractually fix limit values ​​and have their houses certified. Internal and external controls and documentation also played an important role here. The “Construction Quality & Control” category took into account whether and how providers control building materials, structural work and interior work and whether it is measured how airtight the house is.

Prefabricated house manufacturers who are members of a quality association such as the Bundesverband Deutscher Fertigbau (BDF) are subject to strict quality requirements. All solid house builders in the test can be assessed by independent auditors, such as TÜV or Dekra.
