Understanding Construction Defects In North Carolina

A construction defect may encompass any condition that reduces the value of your property due to poor workmanship, design errors, material deficiencies or noncompliance with building codes. In North Carolina, these defects are categorized into two types: patent defects, which are obvious and noticeable, and latent defects, which are hidden and may not surface until years after construction is completed.

In our experience, some of the most common construction defects that arise in Charlotte include:

  • Water intrusion, leading to mold or structural damage
  • Compromised structural integrity, risking the safety of occupants
  • Electrical and mechanical issues, potentially causing fire hazards or system failures
  • Problems with finishes detracting from the property’s aesthetic and function

Beyond the obvious physical damage, construction defects can lead to decreased property values and pose serious hazards to occupant safety. For property owners, the emotional and financial toll can be considerable, making it imperative to address these issues promptly and effectively. Determining whether the damage is due to a negligent defect and who is responsible, if so, can be highly technical and complex.

Our construction defect lawyers understand how to investigate a defect claim and determine fault. Our advice on how to proceed can save you considerable time and money, whether you are the property owner or an accused business.
