Real estate and commercial developers often have their eyes on profits, not building quality. When demand in a rapidly growing area booms, builders are pressed to meet expectations and often rush to complete projects on time. Cutting corners can result in dangerous, poorly built structures and lead to serious accidents and injuries.
Building Design and Construction Defects
When buying residential or commercial property, hire a reputable building or home inspector who can help you look for construction damage and defects in the premises like faulty wiring, poor insulation, defective plumbing, improper drainage, underground water, and inadequate land grading.
If the inspection finds building design or construction defects, you may be able to get the damage repaired and paid for by a warranty that covers the building, the work, or the equipment—and have the repair completed before the dangerous defect causes an injury or even more damage to the building.
Unfortunately, some repairs will not be covered by any warranty, and the cost of the repair will be on you.
