Assisting Californians with Litigating and Resolving Construction Defect Claims
Construction defects are defects that result from a builder’s failure to construct a home or some other building or structure in a workmanlike manner. Defective conditions may result from faulty or substandard building materials, design work, or workmanship. Common examples of construction defects include roofs or windows that leak, faulty framing, faulty plumbing, and slanted walls or floors, among others. Many construction defects appear within three to five years following the completion of construction.

Responsibility for Construction Defects
Generally speaking, when it comes to construction defects, the builder/developer is responsible. This is true even in cases where the builder/developer subcontracts some (or all) of the work out to others – and if the defective construction materials that were used in the building were manufactured by some other individual or entity. In addition to the builder/developer, subcontractors and other design professionals are still responsible for the individual work which they perform.
Potential Claims that May Arise in Construction Defect Cases
In the State of California, especially when it comes to condominiums and tract homes, developers and builders on the project are strictly liable for construction defects that exist in the community or on the various properties. In cases where a construction defect is being claimed, the plaintiff may file a lawsuit for negligent construction and/or breach of warranty. In cases where the plaintiff prevails, he or she may recover compensation for the cost of repairing and rectifying the damages.
