What Is a Construction Defect?
How can you tell if a problem with a building is caused by a construction defect? The answer is not always obvious. Sometimes, a construction defect is not actually a fault in the construction itself, but failure to properly assess the area the building is built on. For instance, not all types of soil are strong enough to accommodate large buildings. This is something the people constructing the building should have checked before the project began.
Some problems that can be attributed to construction defects include:
- Dry rot
- Foundation problems
- Water issues
- Structural problems
- Heating and electrical issues
- Landscaping problems
It may be months or years before a construction defect is discovered. These are called “latent” defects and they can still be brought to a court’s attention even if the building’s construction was completed many years ago. It takes a skilled eye to investigate a building and determine if a construction defect is responsible for any issues. At The Virga Law Firm, P.A., we have experts we can call on to perform this investigation for our clients.
We Can Find the People Responsible
A construction defect could be the fault of contractors, developers, architects, subcontractors, or any other party involved in the project. We can investigate your case to find out who is liable for the damages and file the appropriate paperwork. In many cases, multiple parties can be held responsible for construction defects.
