Contractors or construction companies can be held accountable for the following defects:
Mold. Water intrusion can lead to a high moisture content within a building,
which can cause harmful mold growth, wood deterioration, dry rot, and
Faulty drainage. Without a functioning drainage system, floods can occur causing thousands
of dollars worth of damage.
Basement flooding. Inadequately installed drainage or sewer systems can cause major floods
in the lowest level of a home.
Window leaks. Windows that are not properly sealed could let in moisture that can damage
the inside of the building.
Cracks in the foundation or floors. Major cracks indicate a problem with the building’s foundation
and could be a sign of a very expensive problem.
Settling or rising foundations. The foundation supports the entire structure of a building. A defect
could mean that the entire building is in danger of collapse.
Improperly installed electrical systems. Improperly installed electrical systems are a major fire hazard.
Stucco moisture. Stucco should last the life of the home, but if it is not properly installed,
moisture can penetrate tiny cracks and cause the underlying material to
rot and grow toxic mold.
Roof leaks. Roof leaks are the most common problems that can occur and are often
the result of a bad design or workmanship.
Any deficiency in the design or construction of a building that results
in property damage is grounds for a legal claim. Mistakes like failing
to properly lay a building’s foundation, properly insulate or seal,
or install safe wiring can severely affect not only a property’s
value, but the safety of all who reside or conduct business in it. Property
owners should not have to be responsible for the financial burden of repairing
a contractor’s mistakes.
