Holding Negligent Parties Responsible For Construction Defects
Though it is a large undertaking, beginning a construction project can be exciting. Unfortunately, whether occurring during the construction project or years later, construction defects can put a damper on that excitement and cause many challenging and expensive issues. If you have discovered construction defects in your home within 10 years of its construction, Kristy & Kananen can help.
I am attorney James R. Kristy, and I have years of experience handling a wide range of construction defect cases for individuals and businesses in the Los Angeles area and throughout California. I have a full understanding of what types of defects are the result of faulty construction on the part of the builder, contractor, developer, architect, materials manufacturer and others involved in the construction process. When you enlist my help, you get a dedicated advocate on your side who is tireless in his pursuit of a remedy to your situation.
Handling All Types Of Defects
There are numerous defects in workmanship, design and materials that can occur before, during and after the construction process. I work with my clients to assess the defects they are seeing and being impacted by, including:
- Water leakage from pipes or in bathrooms
- Drywall cracking
- Stucco cracking
- Concrete cracking
- Uneven or cracked foundations
- Doors and windows that will not close properly
- Improper drainage
- Electrical or plumbing problems
- Defects in flooring, cabinets and other fixtures
- Building code violations
- Failure to obtain permits
Expansive Soils Causing Damage
One of the major defects I often handle is expansive soil cases. This is a situation that occurs when water seeps down toward the home’s foundation, causing the underlying and surrounding soil to expand and contract. This can cause the foundation to crack or become uneven, as well as other damage. I work with expert engineers who can evaluate my clients’ soils-related problems.
