Construction Defects: Types of Building Issues – Cracked Tiles – Deteriorating Wood Trim
Building issues like deteriorating wood trim can be a construction defect that someone else must fix. Contact our attorney today to determine what you should do next.
When you discover cracked tiles in floors, this can result from a serious construction defect. Some causes could be soil issues, poor building material, and/or terrible workmanship. First, soil issues can be devastating problems. It can begin with cracked tiles in floors and move on to cracks in the stucco, walls, retaining walls, and so on. Second, the tiles that were used on your flooring could be low in quality. Since housing developments go up so quickly, builders and developers are always pressured to finish on time and under projected costs. This would mean that when able, a builder may cut costs selecting tiles not up to code or a contractor with insufficient training and experience. Hiring a contractor is one of many decisions a builder can make that will directly impact the quality of your house. It is their workmanship that can either prevent construction defects or cause them. More Information Here @ San Antonio Construction Defect Lawyer
