Florida Construction Attorney
A construction defect exists where the work performed does not comply with the building codes, statutes, or contract terms which govern the work. This means that the term can encompass anything from a minor nuisance or maintenance issue, to one as major as a structural impairment.
Faulty foundations, inadequate framing, and moisture intrusion issues often appear in the form of gaping cracks, rotting walls, and poor window or door operation. This can cause serious problems to the structure and create health concerns should any mold develop. If you discover any of these problems, you should immediately contact a Florida construction defect attorney.
Florida construction defects generally can be related to design deficiencies, material deficiencies, workmanship, and subsurface issues. Roof designs which allow water to collect, or the inadequacy of structural members are typical design deficiency issues. Materials which are inferior and poor quality of workmanship are also causes for construction defects.
Florida construction law provides several methods for addressing construction defect issues, including providing Florida contractors with an opportunity to cure problems. Florida also recognizes an implied promise on the part of a contractor to perform the contract work in a skillful and workmanlike manner, and contract terms requiring for the work is to be performed in a workmanlike manner are also enforceable.
Any litigation relating to construction defects must be timely brought to be effective however. The time available to pursue such an action varies in Florida depending upon the nature of the claim and the parties involved.
