Holding Contractors Accountable for Their Work

Contractors are supposed to follow construction standards when building, repairing or remodeling a home. This includes using proper materials and paying careful attention when constructing the project. Failing to meet these standards may result in construction defects that can cause property damage. When necessary, our firm hires construction experts to review your property and assess the damages. We then use their testimony in court to strengthen your case and better your chances of a successful outcome.
