Construction Defect

Construction defect claims have become more and more prevalent over the last 20-30 years for a number of reasons.

Tightening of Buildings

These include the general tightening of buildings through the use of weather-resistant barriers and insulation with the hope of better energy efficiency. Our team of expert engineers, licensed general contractors, plans examiners and thermographers have the experience to understand what went wrong in the design or installation of the property delineated by trade, contract and code what the resulting damages are and what is the appropriate repair.

On some occasions, this tightening of the building has unintended consequences, including trapping moisture-rich air inside of the building envelope. Water, as a vapor, will then condense, and due to different building pressurization, will collect and damage portions of the exterior clouting and wall systems. Our experience as hard contractors tearing apart damaged building has given us a depth of knowledge of the unseen conditions impossible to match without time.

Use of Subcontractors

The financial incentives and sincere responsibilities associated with the use of subcontractors as compared to employees make it such that it is very difficult for a contractor to compete without the use of subs.

The very nature of a 1099 identifies these persons work for themselves and self-manage. While this may be a cost-effective means of division of labor it does not always have the most skilled and trained person that understands multiple trades available at the job at the right time.

Complete has been certified as an expert by multiple courts across the country and has an understanding of building practices, construction defects, and the costs associated with same. Each state has its own statutes regarding the responsibilities of a General Contractor to an owner, and there are important deadlines included in these statutes.
