Any flaw in the construction of a building can affect the entire structure of the building. Construction litigation can be filed for any of the following reasons: faulty design, unworkmanlike work or bad materials. Examples Green & Green have encountered include allegations of improper brick/masonry work, faulty foundations, inadequate soil compaction, mold or deterioration related to exterior insulating finish systems (EIFS) in residential installations, poor roofing, inadequate heating or ventilation and failed fire sprinkler systems. These situations can present themselves in commercial or residential construction and be discovered in a variety of ways at a variety of times.
