In worst case scenarios, property defects could even render the structure unsafe and, therefore, uninhabitable.

Types of Construction Defects

A construction defect is technically any problem with a structure after or during construction that fails to meet regulations and construction codes. As such, there is a wide variety of potential construction defects.

Examples of common construction defects include:

  • Mold or dry rot in woodwork
  • Soft soil leading to foundation weakness
  • Lack of fire exits throughout structure
  • Limited access to water or other utilities
  • Cracking concrete
  • Steel used does not meet strength ratings

The commonality of construction defects is the way they make a property’s value plummet. Once a construction defect is known, it must be remedied by the current property owner in a timely manner. Otherwise, the space may be considered unhospitable and become condemned. This could mean you or your property management company could be blindsided by significant construction costs to fix a defect left by the original construction firm or company!
