WHAT ARE CONSTRUCTION DEFECTS?

Most of the time, construction defects – whether they’re residential or commercial – are a result of poor workmanship, careless construction, defective materials, improper site selection or preparation and more. Burg Simpson’s Arizona office specializes in construction defects mediation and litigation.

Construction defects typically show up in one of two ways:

Patent defects: These are flaws that are obvious or visible.
Latent defects: These flaws aren’t noticeable, aren’t visible, or don’t appear until much later.

Construction defects range from costly structural issues such as a cracked foundation to relatively simple concerns such as poorly installed kitchen cabinetry. The construction defect attorneys at Burg Simpson have been fighting for homeowners and homeowner associations for over 40 years – in Arizona and across the country. If you need an experienced construction litigation attorney, call us now at 602-777-7000 or fill out our Free Case Evaluation form as soon as possible.

WE REPRESENT INDIVIDUAL HOMEOWNERS

Buying a home is more than just another big-ticket purchase – it’s a lifelong investment for you and your family. Because of that, we think it’s only fair that you get what you’ve worked so hard to pay for. We’re a nationally recognized leader in construction defects. Each Phoenix construction lawyer at Burg Simpson has effectively represented thousands of homeowners over the years.

What most homeowners don’t understand is that you do not have to be the original homebuyer to file a suit against a builder or developer, as is often the case with latent construction defects. In fact, you could potentially have a claim against other parties involved in the home building process.

As part of our representation, we work diligently to get construction defects fixed permanently. We don’t believe in quick fixes. Burg Simpson Arizona works with our clients to enlist skilled professionals to assess the construction flaws, evaluate repair options and evaluate the repair or replacement costs involved. Because these cases can be so time-consuming, we also work with homeowners in the event there are any emergency repairs that need to be addressed before a final resolution is reached.

If you’d like to discuss the specifics of your case, contact our attorneys in Phoenix, AZ today at 602-777-7000 or complete a FREE Case Evaluation form here.

WE ALSO REPRESENT HOMEOWNER ASSOCIATIONS

While a new residential development is being built – and for months or even years after they’re completed – developers run the new homeowner associations. One of their priorities while they’re in charge, of course, is to keep repair costs to a minimum. And all-too-often, when the residents ultimately wrest control of the associations from the developers, they discover a laundry list of repairs that need to be made, along with the associated costs.

We have experience working with homeowner associations to help them hire trained construction professionals to examine the problems, and affect the necessary repairs. Out construction litigation lawyers in Arizona also work with our clients in an attempt to negotiate settlements with builders and developers when issues do arise. These negotiations are almost always a better, more cost-effective way of resolving construction defect issues.  Unfortunately, that doesn’t always work. And when it doesn’t, we’re won’t hesitate to pursue a case all the way to a courtroom.

IS THERE A TIME LIMIT WITH CONSTRUCTION DEFECT CASES?

Lawmakers in several states across the country have been wrestling with construction defects laws for decades. It’s a tricky balancing act, weighing the needs of developers against consumer protections. For several years now, homeowners’ rights have been under attack.

Time is always critical in these cases. Our Phoenix construction defect lawyers have decades of experience handling construction defect cases and are well versed in the laws. We’ve fought for homeowner’s rights against developers, builders, and even building material manufacturers. Burg Simpson is here to help you fight back.

If you’ve identified structural issues in your home, or prematurely decaying infrastructure in your community, get in touch with a Burg Simpson construction law attorney before time runs out. Call us today at 602-777-7000 or fill out our free case evaluation form now.
