Poor Workmanship on a Property
Value is key in real estate, and anything that takes away from the value of a home or property is detrimental to the owner(s). For example, customers place a great deal of emphasis on the aesthetics of a building, and if the workmanship on a property is poor and unfinished or displays a very low quality of craftsmanship, it can be very costly for the owner. Building code may not address the aesthetics of a project, so a construction company could still meet code requirements without paying notice to the overall beauty and design of the project. Fort Worth property owners, however, should not be held responsible for dealing with the consequences of poor workmanship at the hands of their construction company.
Causes of Poor Workmanship
Construction defects are oftentimes a result of human error. When workers are not adequately prepared to complete a task or are under difficult constraints, human error on a project is likely to increase. Common causes of poor workmanship include:
- Unskilled labor
- Unreasonable deadlines
- Lack of adequate supervision
- Poor communication
- Inadequate checks and controls system
Poor workmanship not only affects the quality and value of the property, but it can also affect the quality of life of anyone occupying the property afterward. Forth Worth construction companies are responsible for completing their task at certain standards of quality, and if it fails to meet one’s expectations and thus devalues your property, litigation may be in order.
