Learn about construction warranty issues before you sign off

Warranties are typically good documents. They can provide valuable protection to all parties involved in a construction project. At the same time, they should be scrutinized carefully before a property owner signs off on his or her project.

We have found that many residents in Sarasota and other Florida locales don't pay careful attention to the warranties supplied by some contractors. This can happen because people believe all warranties are essentially the same. If a construction issue should arise, even an experienced construction litigation attorney may not be able to make these victims whole again.

We want to send a strong message out to our neighbors in Florida. Please, study your warranties in detail because not all warranties are the same. This can be especially problematic in the construction industry due to the different rates of decay of the materials used in a project. For example, the substances used to seal concrete blocks may not have as long a life as the concrete itself.

Further, it is crucial to remember that you are not dealing with your contractor alone unless problems arise from the way the work was performed. The materials used in a project typically fall under their own warranties. This means you will not be able to pursue construction litigation against the contractor if a material used was defective.

What is the answer to warranty issues in a construction project? Your own due diligence is your very best tool in protecting yourself. Review the warranties provided to you very carefully, or better yet, have an attorney experienced in construction litigation and law look over them before you sign any contracts. More information about construction law and construction litigation is available on our website.
