Some construction defects are obvious, while others are hidden and do not become apparent until years later. A construction defect may arise from various factors, including:

  • Improper soil analysis and preparation
  • Site selection and planning
  • Poor workmanship
  • Use of inferior materials
  • Negligent construction
  • Defective building materials

There may be several responsible parties, including the general contractor and subcontractors. Any damages arising from injuries caused by the construction defect, as well as any decline in the value of the property, loss of use of the property during repair, the cost of temporary housing, court costs, and, in some instances, attorneys’ fees, may be recovered in a lawsuit.
