Construction Defect Basics

A construction defect -- such as a faulty electrical system, roof cracks, leaking pipes, or other structural failure -- can significantly reduce the value of your home, not to mention cause unnecessary stress to your living situation. Some defects are difficult to spot until years later, after they have caused noticeable damage. This section covers the basics of construction defects and what you can do to remedy a defect, including the different types of construction defects and an overview of legal liability for construction defects
