Construction defect near Me
Construction defect is the area of law that generally deals with owners, contractors, subcontractors, design professionals, suppliers, and consumers in the construction industry. The construction industry can be broken down into two broad categories: commercial and residential. At Aultman Law, my focus is on residential construction litigation.
Construction Litigation Representation
Sometimes projects do not turn out as planned. A project may have been improperly designed so it is unsafe or is substandard construction. A contractor may have used the wrong materials. Or a defect may have been included in the original drawings and plans. Whether the problem was the result of improper design or defective construction or both, the problem is often due to miscommunications or misunderstandings that can be resolved out of court. With over 15 years of experience as a construction litigation attorney, I have represented many different parties in the construction industry, including the following:
- general contractors
- civil engineers
- geotechnical engineers
- property owners
