Norton & Associates Talks Signs and Solutions to Construction Defects

September 6, 2018

MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 6, 2018--Construction defect attorneys at Norton & Associates find that the two most common mistakes builders are making are failure to properly waterproof buildings and failure to properly supervise the construction.

Leaks are the first and most visible sign of a construction defect and are often an indicator that other areas of the project have also not been built properly. Many defects go unnoticed for years following construction and only become apparent over time. Defects can significantly reduce the value of your home or building. Addressing them is the task of a construction defect lawyer.

The responsibility of construction defects usually falls on builders, contractors and developers of residential projects. Architects and designers can also be found responsible if defects are a result of improper design, although this is rare.

“Construction defects in your home or building should be addressed immediately as they affect the value, habitability and marketability of your property. Working with an experienced construction defect attorney is imperative to understanding the potential loss, damages, compensation and recovery, as well as identifying the insurance policies that will enable a recovery,” said Timothy Norton, Lead Attorney at Norton & Associates. Depending on the circumstances of your case, the costs of repairs or the decline in the value of your home may be recoverable.

The first step in suing a builder contractor is to contact a reputable construction defect lawyer like Norton & Associates for an evaluation of your case and a discussion of the strategy and what to expect.

Norton & Associates is a law firm with extensive experience and focus on the areas of construction defect, real estate, business and contract commercial litigation. Timothy Norton, the lead attorney at Norton & Associates, has been involved in all phases of construction defect litigation for 30+ years. He has obtained $190m in construction defect jury verdicts, including over $70 million in punitive damages awards, and millions more in settlements.
