7 Step Guide To Making Construction Defect Claims For Retirement and Long-Term Care Facilities

Are you facing expensive setbacks due to defective materials, poor workmanship, or flawed designs at your retirement or long-term care facility?
You have the right to recover costs of repair.

As the largest generation in history enters retirement, for-profit and nonprofit retirement communities and long-term care facilities are cropping up all over the state. Proper construction is crucial, as these communities house our mothers, our fathers and perhaps, at some point, us. Unfortunately, busy architects, engineers and general contractors are working faster to meet this growing demand — encouraging them to cut corners and causing careless mistakes.

The resulting construction defects can shorten the lifespan of your building, make for an uncomfortable environment for residents, and add unnecessary heating and cooling costs to already tight budgets. The good news is, if you’re facing the consequences of defective construction due to the negligence of general contractors, architects, materials manufacturers, engineers or other construction professionals, you can recover costs of repair and/or increased maintenance.

“A successful construction defects claim can help recover costs of repair for property owners for excessive energy bills, repair costs, property damage and diminished property value. These important claims also help set the industry standard, enhancing building codes and legal requirements to ensure safe, secure and fair construction practices for everyone.”
