Every party that is involved in a construction project can play a role to ensure that construction defects and deficiencies do not occur. Construction defects, however, are part of the construction industry.
Our construction defect attorneys handle a multitude of construction defect claims, on both sides of the issue. Whether you need to bring a claim or are being sued for a defect, we can protect your rights and your best interests. The type and variety of construction defect claims can be as varied as the entities, materials and contracts involved in a construction project. However, we have found that construction defect claims frequently involve the following:
- Water leaks/plumbing defects
- Electrical defects
- Gaseous chemical emissions
- Toxic soil and other environmental defects
- Roof defects
- Structural defects
Whether the result of design deficiencies, material deficiencies, construction deficiencies or subsurface deficiencies, the defects can be costly to repair or can even cause injury to occupants of the building.
