Construction Defects

The purchase of a home represents more than just a place to live. Indeed, for most people, buying a home is the single biggest investment of their lives. Likewise, your home provides security for the retirement years.

Construction defects can cause long-term damage to your home leading to tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars in repair costs. Construction defects can range from scratched or chipped tile to a sinking foundation and everything in between. Failing to address serious construction defects can lead to damage to the structural integrity of your home and significant loss in value.

At Abir Cohen Treyzon Salo, LLP our attorneys focus on the major construction defects that result in serious long-term damage to your home. These defects and damages include:

  • Improperly compacted soil
  • Soil subsidence
  • Slope creep
  • Sinking, cracking and failing foundations
  • Leaking roofs
  • Leaking decks and balconies
  • Leaking doors and windows
  • Plumbing leaks
  • Pin-hole copper pipe leaks


In general, soil problems and water intrusion are the two main defects that cause long-term damage to your home affecting the stability and structural integrity of your home.

Soil problems can cause the foundation of your home to shift, sink and crack. In turn, the framing is wrecked and the connections between the framing members and the foundation are compromised. Signs that you may have soil and foundation issues are cracking in the drywall and stucco, especially around windows and doors, windows and doors that stick and are difficult to open and close, cracked or popping tiles, sloping floors and excessive cracking or shifting of exterior flatwork.

Water intrusion into the building envelope can occur through multiple sources. The most common leaks are through decks, balconies, roofs, windows and doors. Deck or balcony to wall transitions at and around doors are prime locations for water intrusion. Signs of water intrusion include staining of drywall around lower corners of windows, separating door frames, crown moulding and baseboards separating and pulling away from walls, windows and doors that stick or are difficult to operate, and staining or cupping of wood floors near doors and windows.

At Abir Cohen Trezon Salo, LLP we bring in leading experts in the fields of architecture, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, civil engineering, hydrology, waterproofing and general contracting.
