What Are Construction Defects & Why Should You Care?

Many forms of construction defects can devalue your property by undermining its structural integrity and esthetic qualities. In the worst case, they can endanger health and create unsafe conditions if left unresolved. A construction defect exists when the components of a building (roofs, windows, doors, siding, electric, plumbing, concrete slabs, foundations, HVAC systems) and/or the buildings surrounding infrastructure (sidewalks, walls, parking lots) fail to perform their intended function or do not conform to applicable building codes…the primary source of these codes is the Uniform Building Code.
