    Construction Defects

    Buildings can suffer from a variety of defects, such as poor design, use of inferior materials, or incorrect handling and installation.  Sometimes problems surface while the building is under construction and delay the completion of a building.  Other times problems can fester out of sight — below ground, between walls, or throughout the rafters, and years may pass before visible signs of defects appear.  The financial investment which owners make in new construction, or in the purchase of a new building is tremendous.  Whether it is your home, office, business, or investment property, discovering defective work and living through the dispute process and corrective action is extremely stressful.  Regardless of the nature, causes, or extent of building defects, the experienced and skilled Los Angeles Construction Defect Lawyers of Hunt Ortmann will be able to assist owners to quickly identify and assess the problems, develop a plan to address or remedy the problems efficiently, and to protect your rights and investment, while providing support and guidance through such difficulties.
