Different Types of Construction Defects
When you hire a licensed contractor to work on the construction of your property, you have every right to expect attention to detail. Unfortunately, some contractors develop properties with defects that can cost even more money to repair or be potentially hazardous. If you have fallen victim to a contractor who left you with a defective property, you may be dealing with a number of additionally and unexpected costs. In this case, it may be wise to seek the legal advice of an experienced attorney.
Victims of this type of negligence may have grounds for a claim to compensation if the construction company responsible for the project failed in any capacity during the process of design or construction. When contractors fail to build properties that uphold both the safety codes and the expectations of their customers, their actions can result in a number of potentially dangerous construction defects, including the following:
- Design deficiencies
- Material deficiencies
- Construction deficiencies
- Subsurface deficiencies
If your attempts to request your contractor to repair have gone unanswered, or if your contractor is trying to charge you for their own poor workmanship, you may need to consult with a construction defect claims attorney.
