If you are referring to the construction quality number on Zillow, it is a value obtained from some county assessor's offices.   In my county, one can find the definition on the county assessor's website in the glossary.   Some counties have a range of 1 to 13, some 1 to 5, and I'm sure there are yet other ranges.

Sadly, you can't. Beginning in the late 1980s, the use of engineered building products came into widespread use. An owner or potential buyer can't know if there are building quality issues without an invasive envelope inspection, and few will do these.

A home inspection will not reveal construction quality, in 99.9% of the inspections. That's why I will only use one of two.

More information provided on request.

Well it depends on what you are referring to, but if you are speaking about a home you are purchasing or prospectively purchasing a good home inspector will know what he is looking at. Best of Luck!
