Holding Contractors Accountable
General contractors, subcontractors, and those supplying materials can be held responsible for unfinished or substandard work through anticipatory breach claims, coverage claims, and claims for delay damages. Under the CDARA, contractors may be put on notice for litigation.
We can also show you how to insure or bond over around mechanic’s liens to avoid interference with financial transactions. This can force the contractor to pay unpaid subcontractors and indemnify you with attorney’s fees, treble damages and judgements that are bankruptcy-proof.
Foundation & Basement Damage
Many homes across Colorado have inappropriate foundations due to our state’s soil and contractors using cheaper floating footers or improperly over digging. This can collect water in volumes that will overwhelm drains and sump pumps, causing cracking, bends, leaking, and failing walls.
