Construction defects reduce the value of commercial and residential properties and threaten the health and safety of their occupants. Homeowners, builders, subcontractors, vendors, product manufacturers, and their insurance companies are all likely to have different opinions of what constitutes a construction defect and who is responsible. When a new or recently built structure exhibits unusual leaks and water intrusion, cracks in walls or foundations, or failures of roofing materials, siding, or other exterior products, defects in design, materials, or workmanship are likely the cause. When serious problems with a new or recently built residential or commercial structure threaten its value, integrity, or the safety of its occupants, disputes arise. We regularly represent clients on both sides of such disputes.
