Housing & Construction Defects
When you start a construction project on a house or a building, the work must be performed properly and in a timely manner. Any contractors who fail to do their job can result in major safety hazards, poor construction, or decreased property value. After the contractor moves on to the next project, the property owners and their investment are often left behind in the dust.
Construction Defect Lawsuits in Texas
The Clark Firm, LLP specializes in representing owners and builders in residential & commercial construction defect lawsuits in Texas. We hold general contractors, architects, engineers, and property managers responsible for issues that arise during construction or after the project is completed.
Construction Lawsuits Are Rarely Simple
Lawsuits for construction defects are often very complex. For example, a lawsuit involving leaky windows on a condominium might involve the architect, window installer, and window sealant manufacturer, with each party claiming the other was responsible.
These cases require a comprehensive knowledge of the laws that apply to each case, as well as the construction industry, techniques, and operations. This is why a law firm must specialize in this area.
Construction Defects Hidden From Sight
Problems in construction projects can be caused by a wide variety of factors — defective materials, poor craftsmanship, environmental damage, and more. These problems are sometimes hidden from sight after the project is completed, only becoming a nuisance years later.
What is the Problem?
Construction defects can shorten the lifespan of a building, reduce property values, make it undesirable for occupants to live or rent a space in the building, take up an inordinate amount of energy, and cost an inordinate amount of money to fix and repair the problems.
Symptoms of Defective Construction
- Leaky windows
- Roof leaks
- Drywall stains or cracks
- Water in basements or crawl spaces
- Soil settlement or upheaval
- Cracks in foundations or slabs
- Windows or doors do not operate
- Asphalt cracks or settlement
- Insufficient heating
- Ineffective air conditioning
- Electrical hazards
- Interior water leaks
- Stained ceiling tiles
- Structural framing flaws
- Fire alarm failures
- Poor design
- And more
What Should I Do?
If your notice any of the symptoms of a construction defect listed above, it is often a sign of a much bigger problem — and it could be a major safety hazard. You must have it investigated by a professional. Our law firm will perform a free investigation for our initial evaluation.
Do Not Wait to File a Lawsuit
The amount of time you have to file a lawsuit is limited by the laws in Texas. It depends on when the construction occurred and when the defects were discovered. Once the “statute of limitations” has passed, it will be too late to file a lawsuit — so contact a lawyer immediately.
How Much Does It Cost?
Our lawyers handle most construction defect lawsuits on a contingency-fee basis, which means we do not charge attorneys’ fees unless we successfully obtain a financial recovery on your behalf.
