Construction Defect Lawyer

A home is the largest investment most people make in their lifetime. Construction problems can destroy the value of your home. Whether you bought a pre-existing home, or contracted for the construction of your home, you have a right to a home free from serious construction defects.

Some examples of defective construction are:

  • Improper water proofing details and flashing
  • Negligent stucco installation
  • Excessive foundation settlement and cracking
  • Negligent siding installation
  • Negligent window installation
  • Defective siding products such as Medium Density Fiberboard or other “engineered” siding products
  • Negligently manufactured windows
  • Improper roofing

In the construction field, inattention to detail can lead to financially disastrous consequences. Construction defect lawsuits can be complicated, as the homeowner may have potential claims against the general contractor, architect, engineer, or any of the various subcontractors. Adding to the confusion, the insurers for the various parties may attempt to wrongfully disclaim responsibility for the actions of their insureds. You need an attorney who is experienced with construction defect claims and insurance coverage issues.
