Things you should know about construction litigation

When you are investing in something as expensive and substantial as a home, office building or other structure in Florida, you need to be sure that everything is done correctly and the edifice will last for years to come. Unfortunately, mistakes made during construction can lead to substantial damage over time. We at Welbaum Guernsey can make sure that the right people are held responsible for the damage and that you receive the compensation you need to correct the errors and restore your building.

There are several things you should know if you feel that poor construction contributed to defects in your property. According to Findlaw, you need to be aware of the most common issues, including structural failure, heating and electrical problems, dry rot, mold and cracks in the floor, wall, roof and foundation. Water problems are also common, with draining proving faulty and improper soil and landscaping leading to damage.

While some contractors may lead you to believe that these issues occur randomly, the truth is that many are the result of preventable factors. The civil and structural engineering can be poor and improper soil preparation and analysis can cause issues. Construction workers who use defective building materials and poor workmanship can also cause damage to the structure.

Unfortunately, some issues will not be obvious for years after the building is completed. Experts can be used to evaluate the problem and determine if it is the result of a worker's mistake. For more information on how to handle your construction defects, please visit our web page.
