Defective Construction Materials and Your Rights
Investing in property can be potentially lucrative for Fort Worth property owners, especially with the flourishing market in Texas. However, if properties suffer from buildings that are constructed with defective materials, property owners may incur costs that are totally unexpected and extremely high. Fortunately, real estate lawsuits can be brought against builders for poor workmanship or the use of defective materials. The real estate attorneys of Gagnon, Peacock & Vereeke, P.C., believe that property owners have a right to the building they paid for. When construction companies are negligent, you should not have to pay the costs.
Commonly Used Defective Materials
Some builders, though certainly not all in the Fort Worth area, think they will make more money if they purchase cheap materials. This can mean that they build on your property using defective or insufficient materials. They might use defective or inadequate:
- Foundation materials
- Nails and screws
- Sheathing and siding
- Wood, that’s rotten or not weather-proofed
These materials can in no way guarantee that a structure will be safe; in fact, they make it rather unsafe. If a contractor or builder has used defective materials on your property, then an experienced real estate attorney in Fort Worth may be able to help you fight for justice.
