What Are Construction Defects?
Construction defects are flaws in the design, craftsmanship, or materials used in the construction or renovation of a structure. Defects can create safety hazards, structural issues, or even performance problems, and may lead to legal disputes between the property owners and tenants, and the builders and contractors. Some of the most common construction defects include:
- Use of substandard materials
- Negligent construction
- Faulty plumbing and electrical systems
- Improper insulation
- Foundation defects
- Leaky roofs
There are two different types of defects: latent and patent. Latent defects are concealed and may not be obvious upon visual inspection. Patent defects are typically apparent to an outside observer. In some situations, a construction defect may contain both latent and patent defects.
Who Can Be Held Accountable For Construction Defects?
Depending on the defect, there are a few different parties that can be held accountable for construction defects, including:
- Other involved parties
It is important to note that, generally, the contractor cannot be held liable for design defects, and the architect or engineer cannot be held liable for construction defects.
