Construction Defect - Community Associations
Leaking roofs and windows, plumbing problems, cracks in walls and foundations, and drainage problems are construction defects that unfortunately are all too common in multi-family residential communities. These problems constitute one of the most complex and potentially costly issues to be faced by a community association and its Board.
