In the course of a construction project there are many things that can go wrong. Sometimes the issues that arise are minor and can easily be addressed. In other situations however, it is possible that it will be necessary to use the legal system to resolve them. One issue that could prompt this is construction defects.
Multiple things could constitute a construction defect. Some, such as cracks in the roof, wall, floor or foundation have to do specifically with the structure erected. Also included in this group are structural failures, dry rot, mold and water issues.
