When home construction goes wrong

Moving into a dream home is at the top of the list for a large majority of Americans. The number of new homes across the nation has skyrocketed, turning that goal into a reality for many families. Yet there is a darker side to this promising statistic: that of ineffective construction. When no one takes the blame for a defect in a Texas property, families are often left with problems that overshadow the joys of a new home sweet home.

ABC News showcased this prominent issue in America, bringing to attention some of the lesser appealing aspects of the country's booming home construction industry. According to an article released last year, homeowners nationwide have expressed frustration in various aspects, including crumbling foundation and insufficient insulation. Although companies build thousands of new homes each year, there is also a high number of complaints toward big-name builders. D.R. Horton, for example, disclosed with ABC that they have set aside roughly $400 million in each of the last two years as cushion for construction defect claims. What comes as a shock to most consumers is that construction giants such as Horton consider this procedure a normal part of business. This is hardly the case for homeowners who are unexpectedly thrust into a world of defect claims and reluctant and difficult construction companies.

Findlaw recognizes this growing issue and provides a list that details common causes of construction defects. Usually a result of inadequate performance or furnishing, these cases can involve aspects ranging from electrical problems to water intrusion. Even pest manifestation makes the list of possible defects. Findlaw emphasizes the impact these damages can have on buyers who simply want security in their place of residence. Construction defects are certainly a nightmare, but knowing the potential causes can save time and money for future buyers.
