Arbitration is included in some construction contracts

Many construction contracts outline a way that you will be able to handle disputes with the contractor. One of the possibilities is arbitration, which is an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) method. This is used instead of going to court to handle the matter. If this is included in your contract, you should understand what it means.

Beware of issues that arise during the rainy season

As the spring rains come, people in this area of California must be vigilant to watch for signs of issues that come with the overflow of rains. Water damage to roofs, foundations and other components of structures can lead to serious issues. For most people, there aren't going to be any problems that come from it. When there are problems that arise, they must be addressed promptly, or massive destruction can occur.

Issues with roof installations can produce serious problems

Having a new roof put on a building is sometimes necessary to help keep the interior of the structure protected from the weather. Failing to get it done properly and in a timely fashion can mean that the inside of the building suffers damage. This can be costly.

Hold contractors accountable for defects

Building contractors have a lot of responsibility to the people who hire them. They need to make sure that they understand the project, have the skills to do the work and can get the proper supplies for the job. Most of the time, they do what they have to do and the client is satisfied upon completion of the project. In the other cases, if some facet of the project didn't go as it should, there can be disagreements about how to resolve the matter.

Don't get overpowered by a pushy contractor

Construction projects are bound to have some hiccups as they proceed. When anything amiss happens, your contractor should alert you to the issue and find ways to overcome the problems. The real issue comes in when they aren't willing to do this. In these cases, you might have to turn to legal remedies to rectify the situation.

Construction defect? Know the options and possible outcomes

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.
