Construction Defects

Construction defects are categorized as when a project fails to meet certain standards or comply with contractual requirements, whether as a result of product failure, faulty plans or specifications, or the way the work was performed. The resulting impact can require costly repairs and cause delays. Depending on the issue, the root cause can be traced back to actions or inaction by the owner, designer, contractor, or subcontractors.
