Think about your options when a construction project goes awry

Issues with construction can be difficult to deal with because often you are working on a large project that's worth a lot of money. The last thing that you should have to deal with is delays or subpar work. There are many things that can go wrong when you are erecting a building. We can help you look into possible ways that you might be able to rectify the situation.

Signs that a contractor isn't the right for your job

Modifying your home is a huge project. Whether you are trying to update it or adding on, you need to ensure that you are working with a contractor who is going to get the job done the way you want it. Finding out later that you hired someone who does shoddy work or who doesn't show up at all can be the start of a very difficult situation.

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.

Attempts to prevent landslides must be vetted carefully

Landslides are a risk for many homes in California, but most people aren't going to avoid homes where this is possible. There are some ways that you can protect your home, so speak to a professional about what options are present for your home. They should be able to give you an idea of how effective certain things that will be.

Water in the basement is a sign of a serious issue

Homes built with basements have some risks that other types of homes don't have. One of these is water leaks. These are problematic because they can signal very serious problems. In some cases, you won't know that there are any issues until you start to see puddles on the floor. If the basement is finished, this can cause damage.

Construction lawsuits can sometimes resolve problems

Construction problems are to be expected in many cases. Reputable and experienced contractors will plan for these issues. It is imperative that anyone who is going to have a project done finds out what kinds of delays, if any, the contractor has planned for. Even if this isn't discussed in the contract, you can ask about it when you are discussing the project's specifications and terms.

You deserve to have your structure finished on time

We recently discussed construction delays and how they impact your project end date. The issue that often comes up in these cases is that you will have to scramble to adjust the move-in plans that you had. This can put you in a difficult spot, whether you are having a home or a business built, there might be other factors that you can't adjust easily.
