Don’t Fight a Construction Defect Alone
There is a difference between punch list items and construction defects. Construction defects are of a much more serious nature, and can involve design flaws, leaks, and cracks (to name a few). These defects can compromise your safety and the integrity of the home. An expert consultant can be retained to analyze the conditions: interior, exterior, soils, common areas, etc. If you feel you live in a newly construction home or conversion project that has defects, act, but don’t fight it alone! Let construction defect attorneys do the work for you.
When you have a construction defect, your home or building is compromised in some way. Whether its poor workmanship or low-quality materials used, these defects can lower the value of your home or lead to additional and more serious problems. Remember, not all defects show up immediately. Some construction defects can show up weeks, months, or even years later! Be sure to check when exactly your home was completed or converted by the developer.
As the owner of the home, you have a right to seek damages in court. Your best bet is to work with a construction defect lawyer to help you win a construction defect claim. Construction defect attorneys know the ins and outs of what evidence needs to be gathered, documented and presented to prove the defects exist and what the overall value of the damage and potential damage is.
