Construction defect? Know the options and possible outcomes

On Behalf of | Dec 21, 2018 | Construction Law

Construction defects of all sorts must be treated seriously. These are matters that can lead to you not being able to use the building without running the risk of someone being injured or harmed in some way. The fact of the matter here is that you didn’t pay for something with defects. You paid for quality workmanship using appropriate materials. There are a couple of ways that construction defects might be resolved. The easiest occurs when you point out the issue to the contractor, and they correct it without delay. This happens when the company or individual you used is reputable and wants to keep that reputation. We know many people who have issues with a construction project hope this will be the outcome of the matter.

In some cases, you might have to take the contactor to court. This is the least preferable manner of resolution because it can be the longest and costliest. You will have to show what happened and that the burden lies with the contractor to correct it. This can be a challenge. Remember that throughout the process, you might not have use of the structure at the center of the case.

We realize that you don’t have all the time in the world to deal with the construction defect issue. We are here to help you figure out a plan of action so that you can resolve the issue as quickly as possible. Once we know what you want to do, we can work to stand up for your rights and show your side of the matter.
