Colorado Construction Defects Attorneys

Construction Defects Overview – Burg Simpson

Colorado lawmakers have been trying to “reform” construction defects law for years. Unfortunately, that reform amounts to weaker rights for homeowners and homeowner associations. Burg Simpson’s Colorado construction defect lawyers have been fighting for the rights of individual homeowners and homeowner associations for more than 20 years. And we’re not stopping now.

In fact, we’ve been recognized as national leaders in this practice area. We’re one of the most successful construction defect law firms in Colorado and the country. Our Denver construction defect attorneys are experienced in a range of construction defects, including parcel problems like soil and slope instability, design flaws, roadway and infrastructure problems, poor workmanship, building material failures, and insurance coverage disputes.

Each construction defects lawyer at Burg Simpson is well-versed in the difficulties presented by Colorado’s challenging geological landscape and environmental conditions. Our trial lawyers have earned national honors for writing the book on Colorado construction defect claims, as well as numerous other media articles that address Colorado homeowner rights.

In 2010, Burg Simpson attorneys worked with both Democratic and Republican lawmakers in the Colorado General Assembly to help write and work for the passage of House Bill 10-1394. The bill became law and helped clarify a murky court decision while reaffirming a homeowner’s right to pursue damage claims against the insurance companies of builders and developers.

Burg Simpson’s Denver construction defect lawyers regularly represent homeowners, homeowner associations, contractors, subcontractors, designers and developers in litigation and arbitration arising from problems that arise before, during and after the construction process.


As any homeowner knows, there’s a lot more to building (or buying) a home than talking to a builder or a Realtor. Several parties play a role in building a house. Some you may able to hold responsible include:

  • The builder
  • The general contractor (or the custom home builder)
  • Subcontractors
  • The design professionals
  • The developers


There’s more to a construction defects suit than just claiming that you have a bad roof. Homeowners and homeowner associations have more than one avenue for pursuing relief, such as filing claims for:

  • Breach of contract
  • Breach of express warranty
  • Breach of implied warranties
  • Negligence
  • Misrepresentation

If you’re in the middle of a construction defect dispute, or think you should be, don’t go at it alone!
