Washington Construction Defect Center the premier construction defect homeowners advocates in the State of Washington.
The Washington Construction Defect Center’s biggest problem with identifying common construction defects in a new single family home subdivision, a townhouse project or condominium development is new homeowners infrequently talk to each other or if they do it is unlikely they will mention a water leak, defective wood siding or cracked stucco.
Common Construction Defects in Single Family Home Subdivisions, Townhouse or Condominiums in Washington:
- Water leaks because of improperly installed or defective siding.
- Improperly installed windows that create water leaks.
- Exterior doors that were improperly installed that lead to water leaks.
- Exterior drainage issues the builder failed to address.
- Defective roofs that were improperly flashed, or installed and or defective roofing material or flashing.
- Foundation cracks or foundations that are not level.
- Homes, townhouses or condominiums that now have mold because the building was not protected during the framing process.
- Wood flooring, appliances, or heating/cooling systems that were improperly installed or that are defective.
- Improperly installed or defective wood fascia board or wood trim.
- Improper exterior calking of exterior siding that leads to water leaks.
