Construction Defect Claims for Schools

Are you facing expensive setbacks due to defective materials, poor workmanship, or flawed designs at your School?

You have the right to recover costs of repair.

Involvement in expensive construction projects can be daunting. You spent a lot of time planning your project, but there is no surefire way to know the job will be done right. Mistakes happen, people get sloppy, or contractors cut corners to increase profits. Negligent architects, overworked contractors, faulty planning, cheap, defective materials, and numerous other factors may play a role when things go wrong.

The good news is, if you have defective construction as a result of negligent general contractors, architects, materials manufacturers, engineers, or other construction professionals involved in defective construction work, you can file a claim to recover for costs of repair or increased maintenance costs.

“Superintendents and school board members have a fiduciary duty to taxpayers to pursue recovery for inflated bills and property damage caused by construction defects. When a general contractor supplies improper equipment that results in increased costs of operation, we seek to recover costs of repair or increased maintenance/energy costs for the district. When a superintendent or board has evidence of poor workmanship, they may be able to recover damages – including overcharges discovered in an audit – from general contractors and other responsible parties.”
