Avoiding common contractor scams

Whether you are hiring a contractor to work on your home or your business property, taking the time to conduct some due diligence can help you avoid costly scams. Even when no scam is afoot, a little research helps you ensure you are hiring an experienced contractor who is less likely to leave you with defective construction or repairs.

Are your storm water permits in order?

If you are involved in an construction project in California, it's a good idea to ensure all the legal details are being attended to. Whether you are the contractor, the investor or another interested party, if a project is derailed because permits or other legal issues weren't handled correctly, then you can lose time and money. One legal consideration for projects in the state has to do with storm water.

Facing construction defect claims

Construction defects occur for many reasons. They might occur because a builder cut corners with supplies or procedures, but they can also occur because of an innocent mistake. Sometimes, construction defects may simply be the result of an unintended consequence of the environment. Whatever the reason for a construction defect, if the owner of a new property discovers the defect within a reasonable time period, they might take action against the construction company for restitution.

Missing money at center of construction contract dispute

Construction projects are complex on so many different levels. Many different companies and parties are involved, and they each have their interests and stakes in the project. Then there's the actual project itself. Building or renovating something isn't exactly a "quick" or "simple" process. And on top of all of that, there are the contracts and deals that are signed between the parties.

Understanding construction defects

California residents might benefit from understanding more about the different types of construction defects that commonly occur. Most construction defects may be classified as subsurface deficiencies, construction deficiencies, material deficiencies or design deficiencies. These defects may be described as shortcomings furnishing the planning, design, inspection, supervision, construction or observation of construction when there is a quality of work that is beneath the buyer's reasonable expectations.
