At Smith Jadin Johnson, PLLC, we protect the rights of property owners facing construction defects. Water intrusion is a common consequence of faulty or defective construction. Water leakage and accumulation in a home or commercial property can lead to serious property damage and mold growth, which can be toxic and make people sick.
Does Your Property Have Water Damage Or Mold?
As Minnesota water intrusion claims lawyers, we help homeowners pursue recovery for their damage losses when builders fail to stand behind their work. We are effective negotiators and work hard to resolve cases in a manner that avoids the additional time and expense of a trial, but we will take a case to trial to protect our clients’ rights. We have taken cases against publicly traded builders to a jury trial in order to achieve favorable outcomes. We help clients with water damage claims regarding:
- Stucco: When a builder improperly installs stucco or the building paper behind it, water can seep in and cause damage to the building’s framing and sheathing.
- Siding: When a builder improperly installs vinyl or steel siding or the housewrap behind it, water can seep in and cause damage to the building’s framing and sheathing. Additionally, poor installation may cause the vinyl or steel siding to warp or buckle.
- Leaky roofs: Roof leaks are often caused by faulty construction, including poor shingle installation, failure to install kickout flashing and the use of defective shingles.
- Foggy, leaky, or improperly installed windows: Improperly installed flashing can allow water to seep around and through the windows and into a property. This can damage the windows, causing them to rot. It can also cause damage to the building’s framing and sheathing.
Water leaks can quickly damage and ruin property. And, left uncorrected, water leaks can lead to pervasive mold growth. We assist our clients in bringing claims against their builders to repair these problems. From our office in Bloomington, Minnesota, we assist clients facing construction defect issues across the state. We have experienced trial lawyers and tireless advocates for the rights of property owners.
