Water leakage: Construction defects that can destroy your project

Keeping water out of a structure is arguably the most important element of construction. This is so while a structure is being built and after the project has concluded. Construction defects that enable moisture to seep into a building can destroy the entire project, especially if the defects are not noticed or go unaddressed for a long time.

Unfortunately, not everyone is an expert on construction. Often, a defect can exist that the property owner will not notice until it is too late to prevent property damage. We have seen many of our Florida neighbors lose thousands or even millions of dollars because of construction defects. We want to help you understand how water intrusion can damage your property by telling you about some of the most common areas subject to construction defects.

  • Roof defects: The roof is the first line of defense in preventing water damage. An improperly constructed roof can provide an easy entry for water and may go unnoticed for a long time.
  • Window and door installation defects: Doors and windows can also suffer from construction defects that allow water to intrude. Make sure your contractor has the knowledge and experience required to install these openings correctly.
  • Structural defects: When construction defects affect the structural components of a building, many problems can occur. Water intrusion is one of the worst of these problems and can cause extensive damage from the ground up.

We believe that you do not have to be an expert to avoid common construction defects on your project. By arming yourself with basic knowledge and good legal representation, it is possible to experience a smooth, defect-free construction project.
