Lawyer Handling Wood Rot And Construction Defect Cases On Isle Of Palms And Sullivan’s Island
Is there evidence of wood rot in your home in the Isle of Palms or Sullivan’s Island? Perhaps you have noticed brick red dust or small brown pieces of wood that are crumbled and dry. Surprising to some, while wood requires moisture to begin to rot, it only needs about 30% water content. Given the warm, moist conditions of coastal regions throughout South Carolina, it’s no wonder that fungi spores thrive and spread on the surfaces of wood in and around homes.
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.
As if wood rot is not a big enough problem, when homeowners purchase a home without knowing that it has rotting wood, many are left wondering if previous homeowners were aware or fully honest about the conditions of the wood in the home.
As an undisclosed wood rot lawsuit lawyer serving the Isle of Palms, Sullivan’s Island and other low-lying coastal areas of South Carolina and Georgia, Taylor Anderson understands that the heavy financial burden placed on unsuspecting homeowners from rotting wood can be overwhelming. What’s more is that if the level of decay is advanced, the structural integrity of the home might be at risk.

Legal Help For Undisclosed Wood Rot And Construction Defects
Though an early indicator of wood rot in a home is the presence of red brick dust or stripped pieces of brown wood that are crumbling, homeowners may not notice wood rot damage for some time, particularly in areas such as crawl spaces, rooftops or basements. Consequently, by the time they discover rotting wood, the damage is often extensive and costly. This is especially discouraging for new homeowners that have completed their due diligence, and have trusted that previous homeowners were upfront about conditions and defects in the home prior to its purchase.
If your home on Isle of Palms or Sullivan’s Island has been damaged by wood rot, negligent flashing and waterproofing, improper stucco system, negligent window installation, defective windows, or other construction defects, call the Taylor Anderson Law Firm.
