San Diego Defective Materials Attorneys
Defective Construction Materials Lawyers in Southern California
One way that builders and contractors increase their margins is by using less expensive construction materials. Using cheaper materials often translates into higher profits for the builder. Inexpensive materials may not perform as designed or may have inconsistencies that can compromise the quality of building, however. The San Diego construction defect attorneys of Martinez & Schill LLP assist property owners and homeowners associations with construction defect claims, including those arising from the use of defective materials.
Construction Defects Involving Defective Materials in California
When builders and contractors choose to use substandard construction materials, there can be numerous negative consequences. Some of the consequences may be aesthetic, while others may pose serious health and safety hazards. Substandard exterior siding, for example, may chip, crack, or peel making the exterior of a property appear unattractive. This is an expensive repair for which the homeowner should not be responsible. Likewise, a homeowner should not be responsible for the cost to remove and replace “Chinese drywall,” a potentially toxic drywall that was used in thousands of homes between 2002 and 2007. This drywall has been shown to cause numerous problems with electrical systems, as well as a variety of health problems for residents.
