Seeking Resolution to Construction Defect Cases

Building a dream home from the ground up is a life goal for many people. While many builders are highly reputable and perform construction work to the highest standards of quality with top-grade materials, there are those who are less trustworthy and simply look to get jobs done quickly and shave off expenses to maximize profit. This can often lead to numerous problems at your expense when construction defects begin to emerge in your home, resulting in everything from cosmetic issues to functionality problems, or even major structural damage.

Common Construction Defects

In some cases, a construction defect may not be easily detectable by a non-expert, which means that when your home is completed you should always make sure you have it inspected thoroughly to ensure that no potentially major issues were missed. Some issues, though they may seem small, now, can become massive if left unrepaired or if sever weather hits.

Some common construction defects can include:

  • Unsealed windows
  • Roof leaks
  • Stained or cracked drywall
  • Warped walls
  • Cracked foundations
  • Standing water in basements or crawl spaces
  • Soil heave or settlement
  • Electrical problems
  • Inoperable doors or windows
  • Uneven flooring

If you discover a defect in your home, you should not hesitate to have it inspected by a professional as soon as possible. Texas law provides for a two-year “statute of limitations,” meaning that you may only file for a construction defect suit within two years of the project’s completion. It also helps to be sure you know if your builder included any warranties in their contract, which entitle you to have them repair the issue quickly. Read your contract thoroughly before signing it so you can hold your builder accountable for any serious mistakes.
