Construction Claims and Defects

Generally defined as a defect in the design, the workmanship, and/or in the materials or systems used on a project that results in a failure of a component part of a building or structure, Construction Defects can cause damage to persons or property, usually resulting in financial harm to the owner.

Our staff is experienced in the interpretation of contract documents, building codes, and professional building standards, as well as an understanding of supporting jobs of subcontractors who may have played a role in the faulty construction. We provide opinions regarding causation and liability and make recommendations for repair.

Our goal is to see that the construction defect is resolved expeditiously and cost-effectively. Origin Cause provides detailed inspections of residential, commercial or industrial buildings. We evaluate any structural issue, concern, or collapse and you will be provided with unbiased, comprehensive reporting and clear photographic documentation establishing the critical facts and factors contributing to each failure.
