Construction defects are caused by design deficiencies, material defects, inferior workmanship, and sub-surface deficiencies. In many instances, it is not clear who is responsible for the construction defect and claims are made against parties which are not responsible. Having an independent assessment performed by a qualified construction professional is often necessary to determine cause and origin of the defect, identify the responsible party or parties, determine if third party damage is the result of the defect, and to legitimize the cost of repairs.

Beacon’s construction defects assessment services include the following:

  • Investigate and determine the cause and origin of the defect by physically examining the structure, reviewing project drawings and specifications, and questioning parties involved
  • Determine who is responsible for the construction defect, and if multiple parties are responsible, recommend distribution of liability
  • Determine if third party damage is the result of the construction defect
  • Recommend repair option(s) for third party damage
  • Provide cost estimate(s) for repair option(s)
  • Provide documents and exhibits for litigation purposes
  • Provide expert testimony
