San Diego Construction Defect Attorney
California Construction Dispute Lawyer
Construction defect cases seem to be on the increase in San Diego County and the surrounding areas. This trend tends to be correlated to building projects involving hundreds of middle-income homes that are put up quickly. Cost-cutting measures such as the selection of poor quality roofing materials, windows and sliding glass doors have a way of backfiring when residents experience losses caused by these types of structural defects.
Construction defect cases are also on the rise in areas where high-end single-family homes have been built. Builders are under pressure to cut costs, build faster and produce flashier-looking homes — perhaps with a greater emphasis on outward appearance than on structural integrity. For example, low-grade lumber will not be strong enough to hold up heavy Spanish tiles.
Similar trends are seen in multiple-family homes as well: Apartments, condominiums and lofts may have structural defects resulting in water leakage and mold, leaky roofs and other problems. Inspectors and investigators enlisted to provide input in construction defect cases in San Diego often report discovery of defects such as the following:
- Water intrusion caused by structural defects
- Window installation substandard
- Substandard cement resulting in cracks in foundations, sidewalks and driveways
- Defective drywall and tile installation resulting in damage inside walls
- Improper landscaping grading resulting in drainage issues
- Stairs not up to code
If walls collapse, if plumbing malfunctions or if basements leak in new construction units, contact a San Diego construction defect attorney.
