Effective Construction Defect Attorneys

Whether you are building a new home or commercial building or buying an existing property, you expect that it will be in good shape and last for years. Unfortunately, a hidden defect can linger for years before it becomes obvious, leaving you with an extensive repair or correction to the property.

The Golden, Colorado, law firm of Bradley Devitt Haas & Watkins, P.C., can help you fight back with a construction defect claim. We also defend builders and subcontractors against construction defect litigation.

What Are Construction Defects?

Most construction defects fall into one of four categories:

  • Design defects: A design defect occurs before construction begins. An error by an architect or engineer can lead to a serious structural defect.
  • Construction defects: Poor workmanship during construction can stay hidden for a while, but it will eventually lead to issues like a cracked foundation, leaky plumbing or electrical problems.
  • Defective materials: Even when the construction workers do a good job, they may be working with substandard materials that result in defects down the line.
  • Subsurface defects: Every building needs a solid foundation that accounts for soil conditions. Cracks, shifting and flooding can occur when the foundation is improperly laid.

Constructing a building is a complex process. A careless mistake at any point can cause serious problems.

Construction defect litigation many times draws in subcontractors or suppliers that need excellent legal representation to protect their interests. Bradley Devitt Haas & Watkins, P.C., has extensive experience defending subcontractors and suppliers.

Extensive Experience In Complex Cases

Construction litigation can be very complicated. There are often multiple parties involved, such as the contractor, subcontractors, real estate agents, buyers and sellers. Years can pass before a defect becomes obvious, and proving that a defect exists can be highly technical.

Our attorneys have extensive experience representing clients in construction defect cases. We will untangle the evidence and work on your behalf to achieve a fair settlement or trial verdict.
