What is a Construction Defect?

A construction defect is typically defined as a shortcoming or imperfection in design, workmanship, or materials that leads to the failure of an aspect of a home or building to the point that it causes actual financial damage to the property owner.

Construction defects come in a wide range of different forms. Some common examples include:

  • Builder defects in a brand-new home;
  • Window leaks/faulty windows;
  • Roof leaks or other issues with roofing;
  • Problems with wood floors or other flooring;
  • Foundation defects, including cracks in the foundation;
  • Defective wiring and other electrical hazards;
  • Lack of adequate fire protection; and
  • Improper drainage system;

  • A home builder or real estate investor.
