Construction Defects

As a real estate buyer you place your hard earned money and trust into the quality of construction of the property you purchase. The last thing on your mind is the possibility that your property may be riddled with construction defects that make it dangerous, uncomfortable and possibility uninhabitable. The East Bay Construction Defect Lawyer at the Law Office of Thomas C. Tagliarini has represented clients with construction defect cases for 30 years. We work hard to get our clients the compensation they deserve. Over the years, we have seen a vast number of different construction defects that require expensive, lengthy repairs.

Common Types of Construction Defects

In some instances, construction firms, sub-contractors, and craftsman substitute substandard building materials or cut corners during construction to save on costs. If the builders of your property have failed to follow manufacturer’s installation recommendations and specifications and have not followed standard building codes, the results can be disastrous. During these unsure times, you can count on our East Bay Construction Defect Lawyer to represent you and your family. The following are some examples of construction defects:

  • Structural failure
  • Poor workmanship
  • Dry rot
  • Inadequate electrical systems
  • Dangerous toxins and emissions
  • Water intrusion problems
  • Mold
  • Faulty drainage
  • Soil, landscaping
  • Cracks in cement, brick, stucco, or drywall
  • Cracks in foundation, wall, floor, and roofs
