Types of Construction Defects

Generally speaking, construction defects fall in one of four main categories:

  • Deficient Design: These defects occur when professionals responsible for the design of a structure, such as engineers and architects, fail to follow building codes and other industry standards. This can lead to dangerous structural issues and other potential safety concerns.
  • Deficient Materials: When the materials used in the actual construction of a structure are substandard, the property may suffer from construction defects. Common examples of material deficiencies include defective window frames, improperly flashed windows, poor waterproofing, defective roofing shingles, and more.
  • Deficient Construction: These defects generally involve poor workmanship by contractors and subcontractors, leading to a number of problems. Examples include improper sealing leading to water infiltration and mold growth, poor electrical work leading to increased fire risk, and improper foundation laying leading to cracks and structural problems.
  • Deficient Subsurface Conditions: In Colorado, homes and other structures are often built on hills and other areas with expansive soil conditions. Without proper subsurface preparation—such as drainage installation and soil compaction—these structures can suffer foundational issues and other problems.

Examples of Construction Defects

There are many different types of construction defects, all of which can lead to potentially harmful effects. In addition to structural issues and loss of property value, construction defects can also lead to health and safety concerns for home and business owners.

Some common types of construction defects include:

  • Unstable foundations
  • Electrical defects
  • Structural integrity issues
  • Water intrusion
  • Mechanical problems
  • Expansive soils
  • Unsealed windows and doors
  • Roof leaks
  • Poor or faulty drainage
