Defective Construction Materials Can Affect the Value of your Property, and Pose Health and Safety Hazards

Defective Construction Materials Can Affect the Value of your Property, and Pose Health and Safety Hazards

Defective Construction Materials Can Affect the Value of your Property, and Pose Health and Safety Hazards

Defective construction materials can severely affect the quality of your property. Faulty drywall, doors, windows, roofing shingles and other building materials can weaken the structure of the building or affect its aesthetic qualities. A construction defect directly affects the consumer, who often has to pay extra to maintain something that was supposed to last much longer. In some cases, defective construction materials can also pose health and safety hazards.

At Parker Waichman LLP, our construction attorneys handle a wide range of construction defect lawsuits. Whether it is Chinese drywall or simply contractors who failed to deliver the services agreed upon, we have the experience to help you with your case. Our construction lawyers are fully aware of the latest building codes and manufacturing processes and will do everything possible to bring your case to conclusion in a timely fashion. We handle cases on a regular basis over defective construction materials. Some of the litigations we are involved in or actively investigating include:

  • Asbestos exposure
  • Atlas Chalet Shingles
  • Chinese Drywall
  • Gentek Defective Siding
  • MI Windows and Doors
  • Pella Architect Series Windows
  • Spray Foam Insulation

Construction defects can come in many different forms. When it comes to roofing, for instance, the shingles or tiles might be improperly installed or be ripped or broken. With the Atlas Chalet Shingles, customers have said that there is premature cracking and blistering.

An example of a windows and doors defect is when they fail to keep out moisture. In some cases, they can lead to health problems because the fungi and mold can growth in these moist conditions. Water intrustion is an alleged problem with MI Windows and Doors’ 8500/3500. Consumers say that that water buildup lead to mineral deposits and mold, and can also cause damage to other property within the home.

Defective siding is another construction issue that had led to lawsuits across the country. For example, Gentek Siding allegedly cracks, chips, flakes, peels or splits within the warranty period.

Faulty construction materials end up costing customers more than they expected. In many cases, you may have paid extra for a product that was promised to be of high quality, only to find out that it needs additional maintenance or replacement later on.
