WHAT IS CONSTRUCTION DEFECT LITIGATION?

Construction defect is a term that encompasses a wide variety of issues resulting from the improper design or construction of a home or building. For over three decades, the San Diego attorneys at Silldorf Law, LLP have been proven leaders in the field of construction defect litigation throughout Southern California. We have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for our clients. Notably, the partners of our law firm assisted in drafting and negotiating the current construction defect statutes in California, The Calderon Act and SB 800.

Common symptoms of construction defect include: cracks in the walls, foundation, or window frames; leaks or water stains; moisture buildup within the window glass; pest infestation; or the presence of mold and mildew. Oftentimes these issues are indicative of a larger, more serious problem.

Early detection of these symptoms is crucial. Once a defect is confirmed, construction defect litigation is the process that must be taken in order to seek reimbursement for damages resulting from these issues.

There is a limited amount of time to bring construction defect claims, as claims generally must be filed within a certain timeframe after construction is completed. If you think you might be experiencing issues in your home, you should contact Silldorf Law, LLP today.

  • MID-RISE & HIGH-RISE

    MID-RISE & HIGH-RISE

    High and mid-rise condominium associations can present their own distinctive problems, and the attorneys of Silldorf Law, LLP have decades of experience representing luxury developments in complex construction defect claims throughout California.

    Construction of multi-level buildings is complex and intricate, and because of these complexities, it is not unusual for a mistake to be made. Due to the unique nature of these types of buildings, many of the vertical assembly components – including HVAC, water, and sewer systems – are increasingly at risk for defects.

    When this happens, the issue may affect not only neighboring units, but the entire project. In example, water can travel from floor to floor, thus making a defect in mid to high-rise buildings more significant than in most condominiums. In the instance of a plumbing or sewer system failure, the resulting damagecan cost hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars, in damages that ultimately the association(and each individual member) is responsible for paying.

    Silldorf Law, LLP is a team of powerful advocates with the experience needed to handle your construction defect claim and put you back on the road to recovery.
