Pursuing appropriate compensation for construction defects

If you had a home built for you in Texas or purchased a newly constructed home, you know there is a chance you will find minor issues with your property that you need to address. This is common with new homes, but there is a major difference between minor errors and serious construction defects.

Defects in a construction project undermine the integrity of the entire project. It can cause additional problems, extra costs and a significant amount of stress. If you are a homeowner who has been exposed to such defects, you will find it beneficial to seek legal guidance as you work to get the repairs and compensation you deserve. This is a major problem, and you do not have to face it alone.

Which construction defects are affecting your home? 

There are various different types of construction defects. While some may be relatively easy fixes, others can be quite expensive and complex to repair and address. Whether the construction company or another party is to blame, liable parties are often reluctant to fix problems. Some of the most common types of construction defects include the following:

  • Electrical problems
  • Issues with the foundation and the integrity of the structure
  • Mechanical issues
  • Building on expansive soils
  • Defects with doors, windows and glass
  • Moisture and thermal protection problems
  • Issues with finishes in the home

Whatever your specific problem may be, you may not be financially liable for repairs. It is possible that you are dealing with the consequences of certain issues such as faulty construction, cutting corners and using defective or low-qualify materials.

If you find there is a problem that is the result of the design or construction of your home, you may need to take legal steps to appropriately address these matters. You do not have to face these issues on your own, and you can seek legal recourse for any compensation to which you may have a rightful claim.

Legal options available to you

Various legal options could be available to you regarding the construction defects in your home. You may find it beneficial to start with a complete evaluation of your case to better understand the most appropriate way to proceed.

You could be eligible for damages related to necessary repairs, additional delays, extra costs and other inconveniences that are a result of construction defects. The moment you learn that you could be dealing with a major issue with your construction project, you will likely find it beneficial to seek experienced guidance.
