Our homes and business buildings are often our largest financial investments. Defective construction techniques can slowly eat away at these investments until they are so damaged that our investments are lost. Contractors may then either refuse, or be unable, to repair the damage caused by their own shoddy workmanship – or their use of defective materials. Insurance companies may also refuse to remedy the problem because of the large loss and cost of repairs. Construction defect litigation may be your best recourse to protect your property. The attorneys at Duhigg, Cronin, Spring, & Berlin, P.A. can help when those you trusted with your home or business have failed.

Inspections Don’t Catch Every Construction Defect

While there is some comfort in building your own structure and being able to watch the contractors work, it is still no guarantee that the end product will be exactly as you had hoped. In any case, even the best inspections can miss some hidden construction defects or poor construction practices until something catastrophic occurs that requires you dig deep. Some of the more common issues include:

  • toxic mold
  • design defects and material deficiencies
  • subsurface deficiencies
  • code violations
  • unsafe structures caused by cutting corners
  • substandard workmanship or inexperienced general contractors
  • unskilled or overworked subcontractors who poorly supervise subcontracted work leading to
  • electrical and mechanical problems
  • plumbing leaks
  • pest infestation and
  • expansive soil conditions
