In the construction industries, companies need to always be aware of the potential for commercial construction defect claims. These lawsuits can hamper a company’s ability to work effectively, and can tie up resources for months or even years. This can disable a construction business that is working on numerous projects, such as single-family homes, apartments, office buildings, and other commercial and industrial structures.

In many instances, a home or building owner will claim a defect resulting from a failure of a construction company, contractor, or subcontractor to construct in a reasonably workmanlike manner, and/or in accordance with a buyer’s reasonable expectations.

While no construction professional, manufacturer or supplier wants to face a construction defect lawsuit, defending against these claims and being prepared for such litigation must be a part of operating a successful company.
