Construction Defects Can Cause Serious Damage

Construction defect is a broad term that can encompass many events, issues, and actions. These defects can include defective construction, repairs, remodeling, designs, and planning.

What Are Construction Defects?

Common defects in construction can include:

  • Concrete overspray: This happens when workers spray concrete on the wrong surfaces or neighboring properties, typically through worker error or equipment malfunction. Removing concrete overspray can leave property owners like you with huge bills as you try to fix it or hire someone to remove it and repair the surfaces that were affected.
  • Cracks in the foundation: Poor workmanship, low-quality materials, and improper surveying of the property can result in a cracking foundation. Your property may be next to a worksite, and the construction ends up causing foundation issues.
  • Water leaks: Water leaks can be caused by many issues, including improper sealing, defective siding, foundational issues, and improper installation of appliances, or faulty plumbing.
  • Electrical issues: Electric issues can be a nightmare for property owners, as electricity can be fatal or cause dangerous and destructive fires. Even when the problems are not so extreme, electrical issues can cause power surges that damage appliances or overload breakers.

You trust professionals to do the job correctly and with the appropriate materials, but when someone cuts corners, you are left dealing with hazardous and expensive issues. We can help you with these and other construction defect claims. Give us a call today at 888-677-7764 to get started.

Who Is Liable For Construction Defects?

Determining liability is always a complex task, especially when there are many components and factors to sort through. With construction defects, we can look to one or more of the following parties:

  • Contractors: Did any of the contractors fail to build structures up to code? Did they repair, build, or remodel something with a temporary fix, rather than a permanent one? Did the contractors use hazardous, improper, or low-quality materials?
  • Developers: Perhaps the developers knew the land was not suitable for building, or they cut corners when building or hiring builders.
  • Suppliers or distributors of materials: Poor-quality building materials can have a profound effect on the safety and stability of a construction. These companies may have willfully misled buyers about the quality of suitability of the materials.
  • Those involved in the design of the building: Engineers, architects, and other parties involved in the design and conception of the building may have failed to uphold safety standards and other specifications.

Going up against these and other parties can be daunting, especially when you are dealing with everything else that comes with defective construction. You can rely on our construction defect lawyers to identify liable parties and negotiate with them for fair compensation.

What Can a Construction Defect Lawyer Do For Property Owners?

While you may think your case is cut and dry and that you can handle everything alone, you may be in over your head. Construction defect cases require a deep understanding of state laws and regulations, as well as bureaucratic procedures. You may be unfamiliar with many of the aspects of your case, and this can make dealing with insurers and professionals next to impossible. With our years of experience in construction litigation and access to experts and professionals in related fields, we will be able to build a case on your behalf.

When you seek legal action, state laws will determine the actions you and the other party must take. You typically have to give the other party a chance to fix the issues, file certain documents, and give proof of the damages, among other prerequisites. These laws can also outline a specific timeframe of when these actions must take place. This can be overwhelming for many, but we can take this and many other tasks off your shoulders and make sure everything is done to the letter of the law.

Our team has spent years dealing with insurers and construction companies, and we know how to handle them. We will negotiate for a fair settlement, and if the company refuses to do so, we are prepared to litigate your case and fight for a verdict that compensates you for all the losses caused by defective construction.

Is There a Time Limit on Suing for Construction Defects?

States will have different requirements for filing lawsuits for construction defects, but you typically have a few years to file, and there may be a statute of repose that extends this deadline. While you may think you have a lot of time to act, these years can go by very quickly while you are trying to negotiate and uncover evidence. It may take you a few years to even identify the root cause of the problem.

Failing to file your suit in this timeframe (or serve proper notices before filing suit) can leave you without a lot of options to recover expenses and losses, so we recommend reaching out to us as soon as you can. We can let you know how much time you have to act, and if any exceptions or extensions apply to your case.
