Poor construction can lead to a number of problems, from roof leaks and foundation issues to inadequate drainage and electrical concerns. The list of construction defects that can impact residential and commercial buildings is lengthy – and the headaches they cause can seem never-ending as well.

So when building issues interrupt your family’s life or your business’s function and require costly repairs, you need a local Grand Strand attorney with specific experience in construction litigation. You need the qualified team at David Taylor Law.

Who Is to Blame For Construction Defects?


The term “construction defects” is a broad one that includes:

  • Design defects
  • Building material defects
  • Poor workmanship

Poor workmanship is the most common cause, often due to insufficient training and oversight. Many builders are more concerned with finishing projects quickly and cheaply than producing quality work. Correcting an architect’s design flaw can be incredibly costly as well, especially because it is often structural, not cosmetic.

Whether the problem lies in the blueprint or the building process itself, due to the intricate nature of construction law, it’s important to have a Myrtle Beach construction attorney on your side. At David Taylor Law, we will hold the proper party accountable by filing a claim against the developer, architect or contractor.


Types of Construction Defects

Some defects are glaringly obvious, while others take longer to become evident. Some common construction defects that impact office parks, neighborhoods and multi-tenant developments include:

  • Utility failures
  • Sinkholes / street collapses
  • Landscaping issues
  • Sewage concerns / inadequate drainage
  • Erosion problems
  • Cracked foundations
  • Improper installation of HVAC system, appliances, etc.
  • Mold

Interior issues may reflect poor workmanship as well, including:

  • Doors or windows that don’t open / seal properly
  • Peeling paint
  • Crumbling grout
  • Leaking roof
  • Broken / improperly laid flooring
