Builders and developers are always looking for cheaper building materials that can do the same job as the materials they have been using for years. Using different, less expensive, materials saves builders and homeowners’ money. However, if new building products are rushed to the market without adequate laboratory analysis, field testing, and/or quality control, then homeowners end up paying the price.

We’ve represented many homeowner associations and thousands of individual homeowners in lawsuits seeking compensation for building material defects and product failures such as:
- Leaking and prematurely deteriorating roofs.
- Defective shingles.
- Defective plumbing.
- Leaking windows and doors.
- Degraded or rotted flooring.
- Siding and exterior surface system failures.
- Real and synthetic (EIFS) stucco installation problems.
- Water intrusion from a variety of sources.
Building material defects can be traced to a lack of testing, errors in the manufacturing process, improper construction methods or application, or a failure to properly consider the interaction of the components and materials with the environment. Regardless of the source of the product failure, we have the experience and resources necessary to effectively handle any claim related to defective building materials.

Colorado’s judges and politicians have been arguing about construction defects for years. One of the more significant changes has been a well-funded effort to chip away at homeowners’ rights. The most dramatic of which has been to cut the statute of limitations on construction defects claims to two years. The clock starts running “after the claim for relief arises”, which is defined as when a homeowner discovers (or should have discovered) a construction defect in their home.
These cases can take months to negotiate – and possibly even years to litigate. So it’s important to act quickly. Our construction defect attorneys have years of experience dealing with these cases. We’ve worked with developers, builders, and building material manufacturers. If you’ve noticed what you think might be defective materials in your home, call one of Burg Simpson’s Colorado construction defect lawyers before it’s too late at 303-500-5995.
We strongly recommend the use of “Plan B” settlement discussions. These discussions involve roundtable meetings of construction experts in an effort to develop a reasonable repair plan to be funded by those responsible for the construction problems.
Homeowner associations and homeowners must be careful, however, that the “Plan B” process is not misused to make Band-Aid repairs following inadequate investigation that will come back to haunt the owners years later. No property owner wants to hastily sign on to an agreement for a “Plan B” repair.
Because the building industry exerts enormous economic influence over the soils engineers that it regularly uses, review by a soils engineer of your own choosing of the soils engineering report and recommendations specific to your home may be prudent. Sometimes a builder’s soils engineer decides that it may not be “cost-beneficial” for the builder to use a certain construction technique that will better solve a problem presented by site conditions, without a serious analysis of the ultimate, future cost to the homeowner due to the failure to use this technique, and without full disclosure of the risk of not using the alternate construction method.
We always advise homeowner associations and individual homeowners to attempt to work out problems with builders and developers first. However, if you have exhausted every other reasonable avenue to get them to fix the problem, our trial law firm can step in and provide assistance. We strongly encourage the use of “Plan B” settlement discussions involving roundtable meetings of construction experts in an effort to develop a reasonable repair plan to be funded by those responsible for the construction problems.
