Lawyer Handling Wood Rot And Construction Defect Cases In And Around Beaufort And Fripp Island
Is there evidence of wood rot in your home in Beaufort or Fripp Island? Though sometimes mistaken for termite damage, brown or dry rot may appear as small, rectangular pieces of wood that are weak and crumble easily. What many homeowners do not realize is that while wood requires moisture to rot, it doesn’t require much. In fact, for wood-rotting fungi to thrive, it only needs about 30% moisture content. Without question, lowcountry areas of South Carolina, including properties in Beaufort and Fripp Island are at risk for wood rot damage.
While wood rot is a big enough problem in itself, it becomes a heavy financial burden for families that purchase a home with wood rot without knowing it. Whether sellers have intentionally concealed information about the condition of the home or if inspectors have failed to detect it, the result is the same. Aside from the heavy costs of repairs, homeowners may face extensive structural damage. What’s more is that some areas might be deemed unsafe.
Wood rot can be related to negligent flashing and waterproofing, improper stucco system, negligent window installation, defective windows, or other construction defects. Taylor has experience with all these types of construction defects and the associated insurance coverage issues.
