In part two, we covered the types of construction defects that commonly contribute to water problems.

What COAs should know about water intrusion (part 2): How construction defects contribute

The resulting repairs can be costly.

Perhaps poor-quality materials have deteriorated long before their lifespans. Or perhaps code violations come to light, requiring costly repairs.
