Construction Defects

North Carolina Construction Defect Attorneys

Building code violations. Shoddy construction. Defective construction materials. Failing foundations. Water intrusion. These are some construction defects that can damage your home, your business and your largest financial investment. The attorneys at Lewis & Roberts have successfully handled hundreds of construction defect cases for property owners of single family residences, multi-family units like condominiums & townhomes, commercial buildings, and hotel chains. We welcome the opportunity to discuss any construction defect issue you may have with you home or business.

From our office in Raleigh, we have handled hundreds of construction defect cases.

Our homes and business buildings are often our largest financial investments. Defective construction techniques can slowly eat away at these investments until they are so damaged that our investments are lost. Contractors may then either refuse, or be unable, to repair the damage caused by their own shoddy workmanship - or their use of defective materials. Insurance companies may also refuse to remedy the problem because of the large loss and cost of repairs. Construction defect litigation may be your best recourse to protect your property. Our attorneys can help when those you trusted with your home or business have failed.

Construction defect litigation involves many different and related areas of the law. Contract law is mixed with warranty law which is mixed with the law of negligence. Often times, one area of the law may prevent other legal claims from being made. Additionally, the use of construction experts - sometimes called forensic engineers - may be necessary to prove not only the cause of the damage, but also the scope of repairs to fix the damage. Juggling all of these different areas of the law requires an experienced lawyer. Our construction law attorneys in NC have years of experience handling hundreds of cases involving construction defects on behalf of both residential and commercial owners. We have managed extensive investigations into the cause of construction damage, including intrusive engineering tests, and overseeing a full scope of repairs. In some cases, we have recovered money damages for our clients. In other cases, we have negotiated repairs with our fees - and engineering oversight - being paid by the defendants. We have also won jury verdicts when settlement has not been attainable. We bring these many different experiences to every construction defect case we handle.
