Arizona Construction Defects

Material Malfunctions – Construction Litigation Law Firms – Arizona

Material Malfunction – Construction Contract Lawyers - Arizona Burg SimpsonBuilders are constantly on the hunt for cheaper building materials to keep their costs low and their profits high. It might be cost-effective, but new building products are often untested replacements for proven parts. And most of the time, when those new materials fail, the builder has moved on and the new homeowner is on the hook for the repair bills. If defects are popping up in the construction of your new home, you need to reach out to a Burg Simpson Phoenix construction attorney now by calling 602-777-7000 or fill out a Free Case Evaluation Form Here.

So where, exactly, do builders like to cut corners?

  • Windows – Builder grade windows may save a few thousand dollars off the sticker price of a new home, but come at a much higher price when it comes to energy costs over the long term. Additionally, vinyl windows – the cheapest available – tend to expand when they heat up and contract as they cool down.
  • HVAC systems – Lower-budget heating and cooling systems can shave thousands off the purchase price, too, but – again – end up costing homeowners more in higher energy costs down the road.
  • Allowance-based items – This category refers to plumbing and lighting, cabinetry, countertops, and flooring materials.

Building inspectors point to the same problems that crop up time and again in poorly constructed homes, such as:

  • Defective electrical wiring.
  • Roof issues, often caused by both poor material and shoddy installation.
  • HVAC systems.
  • Plumbing systems
  • Poorly installed, or insufficient, installation.
  • Window leaks, which can also be a result of subpar vinyl windows.
  • Environmental issues, caused by inferior materials that attract mold.
  • Stucco cracks.
  • Below grade walls. A basement wall or exterior ground level wall too far underground is prone to water damage.
  • Water heater.
  • Gutters.

If you are finding issues with parts of your new home that should not be appearing for several more years, your builder might have cut a few corners when shopping for materials. You need the help of an expert. Contact a construction defect attorney at Burg Simpson Arizona as soon as possible by calling 602-777-7000.
