Get help if a construction defect threatens your business

A construction defect claim is filed when there is a failure of any building component, adjoining property or system. These damages may be obvious in some cases and hidden in others. For example, a water pipe that bursts may be obvious due to water damage, or it could be hidden when mold begins to grow behind drywall.

Have you tried these ways of reducing the likelihood of disputes?

In construction, you may find you're involved in a dispute if one of the parties breaches the construction contract. Construction disputes can also happen because of delays, not meeting the conditions of a contract or because one party is just making unsubstantiated claims.

Building codes are important: Here's why

When you're building any kind of structure, whether it's a new patio on a home or installing electrical units throughout a brand-new hospital, the fact is that you need to make sure to follow code requirements. Even if a new home or building is beautiful, an aspect of it that causes a code violation can be extremely serious and costly.

What are some common mistakes made when building a property?

A building code is an agreed-to set of safety standards that is created for a specific area. This code regulates things such as the materials used in the building, the design of the building and construction requirements.

Get help with your construction litigation case

Construction litigation most often occurs when something happens that ruins a piece of construction or when a job is not getting done. Litigation can be used to hold a construction company liable for mistakes they made or to sue a contractor over violating a contract.

Don't let an unhappy client ruin your business' reputation

When something goes wrong with construction, it's normal for a client to say something to you. If you have done all you can to build something for them that is safe and up to code, you may believe that their complaints are not justified.

Can you sue for a contractor's delays?

When you hired a third-party construction team to work on your project, you trusted that they'd do a good job. Overall, you agree that they are doing that, but they're taking much longer to complete the job than agreed. Instead of the initial 6-week plan, this has turned into a several-months-long process.

Make sure your attorney is informed about client claims

Your construction team is among the best, so you were shocked when a client came back to tell you that they wanted to file a claim for construction defects. They claim that there was damage to concrete, problems with their building's structure and even water damage. To have all these defects, a serious problem would have had to have happened during construction, but no one on the team could think of anything that hadn't been done correctly.

Building wrap must be installed according to instructions

Building wrap is a very important part of a new home, and it needs to be installed according to the specific instructions from the manufacturer. This can be slower and a bit more tedious than some construction crews prefer, but it is the only way to do it and get excellent results.
