Construction Defects

The risk of construction defect litigation continues to increase as building systems, products, and material integration becomes more complex.

Skilled trades are continuing to decline, while real-world construction challenges rise with each new high-performance standard.

Each year, the Rimkus team of architects, engineers, and construction experts is retained to evaluate hundreds of construction claims and legal disputes involving construction deficiencies, building codes, and life safety issues. With economic damages ranging from tens of thousands to millions of dollars, our construction defect engagements have encompassed residential homes, commercial buildings, educational institutions, healthcare facilities, manufacturing, as well as major infrastructure and industrial construction projects.

Our team offers a comprehensive approach to evaluating the cause of construction defect claims and the resultant damages that arise from water intrusion, mold, faulty drainage, foundation damage, roof system failures, as well as deficiencies in mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC systems.

No matter how complex the issue, Rimkus consistently communicates reliable facts for developing early resolution strategies for recovery.
