Construction Defects in North Carolina & South Carolina

Assistance from a Skilled Civil Litigation Attorney

As the pace of new residential and commercial building has exploded, instances of defective construction have also escalated to unprecedented levels. These problems have been well-documented in numerous probing news reports throughout the country.

A “perfect storm” of conditions has inspired this virtual epidemic of construction defects. This includes the following facts:

  • Many subcontractors are untrained and poorly skilled
  • Large, national production builders rush the completion of entire neighborhoods, cutting corners along the way
  • Builders fail to oversee and adequately coordinate construction
  • Building products have become more complex and less forgiving, requiring greater attention in application
  • Government inspection departments are understaffed, overworked and underfunded

Don’t allow a construction defect to harm you, your property, or your profitability. Contact our North Carolina civil litigation lawyer at The Law Offices of Jason E. Taylor for a free consultation.

Holding the Responsible Accountable

The result of construction negligence is the wide-spread incidence of serious building code and shoddy workmanship. Houses leak, foundations crack, and building materials fail. The usual scenario is that general contractors, subcontractors and component manufacturers refuse to assume responsibility for these problems. If they do respond, they frequently propose “Band-Aid” repairs which are neither durable nor return the property to the quality for which the buyer bargained. So-called “warranties” provide little relief or protection and homeowners are left with huge bills to remediate these deficiencies.
