What types of defects are affecting your construction project?

A construction project is a significant investment of time and financial resources. If you contract a company to build a structure to your specifications, you have the right to expect it will do so according to the terms of your contract. When there are defects in your project, it can lead to financial loss and affect your use of the building or structure. 

Construction defects are much more than just an inconvenience. There is the potential for significant costs, repairs and delays in the completion of the project. It's in your interests to work for a beneficial outcome to your concerns related to construction defects. When out-of-court solutions are not effective, it may be necessary to take legal action to resolve the issues.

Defects can cost you

One of the most complicated aspects of dealing with construction defects is the fact that they are not always immediately apparent. There could be a significant problem with your home or your building, and you may not know until you are already using the space. Some of the most common types of construction defects include the following:

  • Foundation or framing issues
  • Electrical problems
  • Faulty materials used in the construction of the building

Construction defects often result in litigation. Construction companies do not want to assume additional financial costs, yet you want a final product that is safe, durable and up-to-code. If you are not able to reach a reasonable resolution with the company responsible for your project, you may have to file a lawsuit to secure appropriate remedies.

Successful construction defect claims start with evidence that the defects are the result of breach of contract, negligence, defective design, poor workmanship and more. An assessment of your case will reveal whether you have grounds to pursue legal recourse in your effort to resolve your concerns related to your Florida construction project.

The outcome you deserve 

You do not have to navigate the civil claims process alone. There is significant benefit in working with an experienced real estate attorney from the very beginning. Starting at the moment you discover defects in your construction project, it is helpful to start working on various ways you can pursue proper repairs or recovery of your losses.

You have the right to protect the investment you made in your construction project. Whether you are building a home or commercial structure, you may fight to hold liable parties accountable for financial losses and other consequences.
