Minneapolis Construction Defects Attorney

Even if you have not personally built a home or commercial building, you have no doubt seen construction projects in various stages of completion. Through the work of many different construction crews, the building goes up piece by piece, step by step. Within each phase of the construction process — the foundation laid, the framing constructed, the insulation installed, the roof built, the plumbing and electricity installed and connected — there is little room for error. When an error does occur, the defect can bring problems and headaches to the owners, not to mention high-dollar expenses to correct the defect.

Our Law Firm Handles Various Types of Construction Defect Litigation

Construction defect claims can involve many types of parties and countless varying situations. For example, owners of a newly constructed building may have a claim against a contractor for a defect. Or, purchasers of an older building that they recently purchased may have a claim against the previous owners for failing to disclose a known defect. While defects can arise from virtually all parts of a building, construction defect litigation generally arises due to defects in the following:

  • Excavation and soil preparation
  • Foundation
  • Insulation
  • Plumbing
  • Roof
  • HVAC
  • Electrical
  • Windows
  • Stucco/siding

One problem can lead to other problems. For example, a foundation that is improperly dug and laid can cause the building to settle. The flooring might crack, the doors and cabinets might not shut properly, and the entire home may require extensive and expensive repair work. Through trial or arbitration, our law firm can ensure you obtain the necessary financial compensation to remedy the house's defects.

Does Your House or Building Have Mold Problems?

Mold can form when moisture accumulates due to a construction defect. In addition to being unsightly, mold can cause the house structure to crack, paint to peel, and in severe situations can result in the occupants becoming ill. Mold can be removed, but it is costly, and if a previous owner failed to disclose a mold problem to you, you may have a basis for a lawsuit.
