Problems with construction project design can lead to defects

A construction project is really only as good as its original design plans, quality of materials used and level of workmanship used to build it. Defects in a project are more than an inconvenience. Problems, even ones that don't seem like a big deal initially, can cost you a significant amount of time, money and stress.

It's not always easy to pinpoint the source and cause of a construction defect. If you are dealing with issues with a project, you know there is money and valuable time at stake, which is why you may find it helpful to rely on the support of an experienced legal professional to help you resolve this issue. If there is reason to pursue legal recourse, you do not have to navigate this process alone.

Design problem or poor quality of work?

While design problems are an issue in any type of construction project, so is shoddy manufacturing. It's also possible the problem with the construction project is with poor soil quality or bad materials used in the building phase. Some of the most common types of construction defects include: 

  • Materials - When poor-quality materials are used in a construction project, the final result will be a structure that may be compromised by weather, rotting wood and other issues related to bad materials.
  • Design - Poor design quality will ultimately result in a completed project that could be dangerous, susceptible to weather damage and other issues that affect the integrity of the structure.
  • Soil and surface - When there is improper site development or the soil on which a structure is built is poor quality, it can compromise the entire building. The final result may be a building that is unusable or uninhabitable.

These are only a few examples of how construction defects can impact the entire completed building or structure. Even minor problems can result in serious and expensive issues, and it is worthwhile to address these things as soon as they come to light.

Appropriate recompense for your losses 

When there are issues with a construction project, it can lead to time and money lost. It can be incredibly complicated and expensive to fix issues or stop construction to deal with problems. This represents the potential for substantial losses for your business or any individual with a financial stake in the completed project.

If you believe that a construction defect is the root issue of your problems with a Florida construction project, it may be appropriate for you to pursue recompense for your losses. An assessment of your case can reveal the specific legal options that are available to you.
