When Construction Defects Occur Due to Inferior Building Materials

Homebuilders, like all those who pursue commercial endeavors, are cost-conscious because they are in business to turn a profit. Paying close attention to the bottom line is a sound business practice. To this end, builders are interested in saving money on the materials they buy to construct our condominiums, townhouses, and single-family homes. A builder’s approach to keeping costs in line can also benefit the home buyer. When the builder can purchase building materials at a lower price, they can pass along this savings to the buyer.

In theory, the purchase of less expensive building materials sounds like a wise decision, but it is also important for the builder to evaluate the quality of the products used during the construction process. When building materials are distributed in the marketplace before they have been thoroughly tested in the field and by quality control and laboratory analysts, this poses a risk that the products may be defective or perform their intended purpose properly. Unfortunately, when inferior building products like roof shingles, siding, stucco, windows, and doors fail, it is the association and homeowners who must deal with the aftermath.
