Last week, we discussed some various aspects of construction delays. If you recall, we discussed how it is possible to seek compensation for those delays if certain criteria are met. We know that any delays for your construction project can cost you money and have negative impacts on your life or business. We know that you don’t want to have to deal with those effects.
The weather around the San Diego area can often lead to some construction delays. With that in mind, many construction professionals opt to add in time to the contract to help compensate for weather-related delays. In some cases, unexpected weather issues might not be enough to warrant you filing a construction delay claim.
Delays in getting materials, problems with subcontractors and a host of other issues can also lead to construction delays. In these cases, construction delay claims might be warranted. The same, however, isn’t true if you change the scope of the project in the middle of the project.
The fact of the matter is that no matter what the reason for the construction delay, your ability to enjoy your new building is affected when things take longer than the construction contract states. If you are a business owner, your profits and your business can be negatively affected by the construction delay.
If you have been dealing with a construction delay, we can look into your case to determine your options for seeking compensation for those delays. Once you know your options, you can decide how you want to move forward with your claims.
