Building Exterior Defects – Construction Defect Law Firm

Building Exterior Defect - Colorado Construction Defect Lawyers - Colorado Burg Simpson Exterior building components include roofs, siding, stucco, brick, stone, windows, doors and other fenestrations, house wraps, flashings, foundation walls, and exposed architectural elements. These components, once connected to each other and the building itself, comprise an integrated system designed to prevent outside moisture, such as rain and snow, from passing beyond the skin and entering and damaging building components such as walls, floors, wall and floor cavities, interiors and interior finishes, and ceilings. Exterior building defects can result in multiple leaks at different locations, causing serious and ongoing damage to a home’s common elements.

Damages caused by exterior building defects are often hidden from view by the components themselves. The Colorado construction defect attorneys at Burg Simpson work with homeowners and homeowner associations to thoroughly investigate whether exterior building components are correctly installed and integrated with one another, and if not, the severity and extent of concealed damage as well as the anticipated nature and scope of repair. By doing so, fully informed analysis and decisions can be made about your potential building exterior defect claims.

If your new home has an exterior building construction defect and your builder or developer has been unwilling to work with you, call a construction defects lawyer at Burg Simpson today at 303-792-5595 or fill out our Free Case Evaluation form right now.

In Colorado, a construction defect is defined as any defect in the design or construction of any improvement to real property that causes personal injury or damage to real or personal property. The most common flaws found in building exteriors include:

  • Roofing – Problems with roof installation and/or materials can include unsealed penetrations, missing shingles, or shoddy underlayment installation, and more. The roof is probably the singles greatest source of exterior construction defects.
  • Windows – Leaks through windows or walls near them are not only a sign of a bad window installation, they are also one of the most common types of construction defects.
  • Doors – Defects with door installations can include improper or missing flashing.
  • Exterior Enclosure – These issues can affect the stucco (cracking, window/door separation), masonry veneer (loose or cracking veneers), and the siding and trim (poor weather barrier, poor lapping or flashing).
  • Balconies and decks – Issues with these exterior features can include flaws in either design or installation. Examples include general poor workmanship, improper materials or fasteners, failure to add flashing or using the wrong concrete mix, among other things.
  • Sliding glass doors – Improper installation of sliding glass doors can result in leaks and possible water damage.

 If your new house features any of these construction defects, you need to speak with a construction defects lawyer as soon as possible. Call Burg Simpson at 303-792-5595 today.
