In Hollywood, homeowners rely on contractors and construction companies to build their dream homes and to complete needed renovations and upgrades to an existing property. Construction on your home can take some time and can be expensive. You start a home project to improve the safety, comfort, and value of your home. If a contractor or company is negligent during your project, you may have a faulty construction claim for your Hollywood home. You may wish to contact Flaxman Law Group to determine whether you have a claim.What Is Faulty Construction?
Contractors and building professionals are expected to have the training and knowledge to complete new builds, additions, and renovations safely and correctly. When contractors, carpenters, and other home renovation and building professionals are negligent and do a poor job in your home, your home’s value may suffer. Some faulty construction can lead to additional damage to your home, the need for costly repairs, and even injuries to you and your household.
Most commonly, Hollywood faulty construction claims lawyers deal with cases involving:
- Mold issues resulting from roof or window leaks
- Concrete cracks
- Drywall cracking or buckling
- Ceilings falling or sagging
- Stucco shrinking and cracking
- Structural problems
- Moisture accumulation
- Poor quality finishes, including fixtures, paint, enamel, cabinets, laminate, and tiles
- Sliding glass door cracks and leaks
- Pooling water on patios, decks, and balconies
- Faulty piping and leaks in showers, tubs, toilets, and sinks
- Foundation problems
- Settlement issues
Any time construction work is completed in a subpar manner, you may have remedies. Contractors and construction companies usually have warranties and guarantees which allow repairs to be made if there is an issue. If warranties do not resolve the problem or if a company refuses to honor a guarantee, customers have the right to seek civil redress and can pursue compensation to pay for repairs, damages, injuries, and more.How Can You Know if Construction Is Faulty?
Some quality issues with construction are obvious. Patent defects are visible right away, so you might notice cracks in newly-laid tile or an uneven ceiling. Latent defects are not as obvious and may take months or years to become visible. For example, ceiling tiles may be placed incorrectly but may look fine until they fall from the ceiling a year after installation.When Should You Contact a Hollywood Faulty Construction Claims Attorney?
Florida law has a statute of limitations for four years for most construction fault claims and up to ten years for latent defects. To file a claim, Florida Statute Chapter 558 requires a plaintiff to serve a Notice of Claim before filing a claim and to give the contractor or other professional a chance to rectify the problem.
