What is Considered a Construction Defect?

Construction defects can take various forms and result in significant issues found in homes, businesses, and other structures. There are two main types of defects: patent and latent defects. Patent defects are observable by our senses, while latent defects are detected through testing or other measures. While a property owner has four years to file a patent defect claim, a latent claim can be filed within 15 years.

Common construction defects include the following:

  • Defective or poor-quality materials
  • Improper craftsmanship and installation
  • Mold growth from water intrusion and inadequately sealed surfaces
  • Water damage or intrusion into the structure due to defective roofing or improperly sealed points of entry
  • Roof leaks
  • Cracked flooring
  • Soil movement or subsidence
  • Unstable foundations
  • Any other defects which compromise the integrity of the structure

Construction defect claims typically involve complex engineering, legal, and technical issues. Our Orlando real estate lawyers have a thorough understanding of state and federal building codes and construction regulations to help our clients recover their entitled damages.
