What are the Different Types of Construction Defects?

Generally, there are four types of construction defects: design deficiencies, construction deficiencies, material deficiencies, or subsurface deficiencies.

Design Deficiencies

Design professionals, such as engineers or architects, do not often work as specified, which can result in construction defects. Common design deficiencies relate to buildings outside of the specified construction codes. For example, roofs with a design defect may have inadequate structural support, poor drainage, intrusion, and water penetration.

Construction Deficiencies

Poor workmanship may result in a long list of defects. For example, if one area of your building has poor water infiltration, your structure is at risk for mold. Other problems include the dry rotting of wood, cracks in walls or foundations, plumbing leaks, mechanical and electrical problems, or pest infestation.

Material Deficiencies

Using inferior building material causes significant structural problems, such as windows that leak even when properly installed. The reasons for window leaks vary: improperly applied building paper, rough framing, cracked window frame, or lack of sheet metal drip edge.

Common manufacturer problems with building materials can also include deteriorating building paper, asphalt roofing shingles, waterproofing membranes, and other wall products.

Subsurface Deficiencies

Many homes and commercial establishments are built on areas that lack a stable foundation. A shaky foundation may result in cracked floor slabs or foundations. If subsurface conditions are improperly compacted, your property will experience improper settling to the ground, shifting structures, and flooding.

  • "We had a main sewer back-up affecting a third of our finished basement. They arrived 90 minutes after I hung up the phone . . . on a Sunday! Went to work immediately and was back four days in a row exactly when they said they would be there. Cleaned up and hauled out everything contaminated. They did everything they said they would and more!"
