Our Areas of Practice
A special assessment to correct defects in construction is one of the most unpleasant things that can happen to condominium owners. We have successfully helped many associations prosecute claims against the developers and contractors responsible for the construction problems that often plague the common elements of their community. These problems often involve defective or improperly installed windows and doors, roof, siding, trim and brick installation problems and use of defective or substandard building products.
Building Product Problems
Even when installed appropriately, a defective designed and manufactured building product can be nearly impossible to maintain and can often lead to deterioration of other building components. Defective product claims handled include defective windows, composite trim, siding and decking
Single Family Residence Cases
A family’s biggest investment is usually their home. Unexpected repair expenses to correct significant construction defects should not be part of the bargain. We have successfully helped many homeowners prosecute claims against the developers and contractors responsible for construction problems involving defective or improperly installed windows and doors, roof, siding, trim and brick installation problems and use of defective or substandard building products.
Quite often, through a combination of improper pest control chemical application or monitoring and construction defects involving moisture intrusion through the building envelope, very significant damages resulting from subterranean termite infestations can result. Claims handled in this area include those solely against the pest control company responsible for protection of the property or in conjunction with a construction defect claim.
Often groups of similarly situated building owners will find it advisable to work together in pursuit of claims involving defective building products or pervasive design or construction problems. We can evaluate claims to see how well they might be pursued as a class action
Insurance Coverage For Construction Claims
Successful resolution of many construction claims directly results from how the various liability insurance policies for those responsible for the problems are pursued. We have handled numerous cases relating to how these insurance policies are triggered to cover construction claims as well as determining the covered loss of trial verdicts in post-trial legal actions.
