  1. Foundation/grading issues: Single-family homes need to be built in such a way that water drains away without pooling around the foundation, which can cause huge, costly problems.
  2. Bad framing: These issues typically show up around window opening, which can exposure your home to the elements.
  3. HVAC: Proper duct installation is critical in HVAC systems. Poorly installed ducts can hamper air flow, leading to poor air quality that can lead to uncomfortable, or even ill, residents.
  4. Plumbing: Shoddy plumbing, with badly installed transitions or poorly planned lines, can quickly lead to sewage backups, mold, or early pipe failure.
  5. Windows: Leaks through windows or walls near them are not only a sign of a bad window installation, they’re also one of the most common types of construction defects.
  6. Exterior Walls: Most single-family homes have at least 10 to 20 openings, for things such as pipes, vents, and conduits. Ensuring each of these openings is sealed properly is critical to preserving the life of the home. Improper seals can lead to water damage to the structure of the home as well as contaminate the environment inside.
  7. Interior Walls: Examples of crucial interior seals that need to be maintained are bathtub and shower enclosures, hot water lines, and washing machine lines, to name a few. These types of leak often go undetected and can do considerable damage over an extended period of time
  8. Roofing: The roof over your head could very well be the most important part of your single-family home. Roof problems can include unsealed penetrations, missing shingles, or shoddy underlayment installation, and more.

The primary goal of our construction law attorneys is to get any construction defects you have permanently fixed, so the problems don’t return and that further damage isn’t done. We always advise our clients against quick fixes or cosmetic approaches that don’t address the underlying problems.

We work with single-family homeowners identify highly qualified and experienced construction experts and engineers to evaluate problems, recommend needed repair alternatives and estimate costs. Additionally, we help homeowners deal with emergency repairs while the lawsuit progresses. If you have a damaged roof or spreading water damage, for example, call the construction defect law firm of Burg Simpson today at 303-792-5595 so that we can discuss your case.

Litigation can be a costly and time-consuming process. In construction defect cases, we generally attempt to negotiate an amicable resolution with the developer or builder responsible for the problems, without resorting to a lawsuit. When this isn’t possible, though, we are fully prepared to aggressively pursue a lawsuit to its conclusion, including all appeals and the resolution of any insurance coverage issues. If you think you have a construction defects claims, call the Colorado construction defect lawyers at Burg Simpson before things get worse.  Call us now at 303-792-5595.
