Waterproofing Failures Lawsuits and Cases

Waterproofing failures and related construction defects lawsuits and cases are common, and arise from a wide variety of situations and circumstances. Our firm has handled many types of waterproofing failures lawsuits, and we have the experience needed to win these types of construction defects cases.

Waterproofing failures and defects are more common than one would think. Even in the home that Mr. Ralidis shares with his wife, the bottom floor flooded during heavy rains. Water intrusion often leaves even more problems, such as mold. After some investigation, it was discovered that the builder failed to waterproof the walls around the home. As a result, a trench had to be dug 6 feet deep around the entire home, and the walls and foundation walls (inside and out) had to be waterproofed (sealed). The flooding occurred just about 10 years after the construction had been completed (when a Notice of Completion was filed with the Building and Safety Department). The statute of limitations is 10 years for defects, such as the waterproofing failure, which are not obvious, and the case was resolved for the cost of the extensive repairs.

Mr. Ralidis has handled several waterproofing failures and construction defect type lawsuits. Challenges in these kinds of cases can include pinpointing the time frame when the damages occurred or when the construction that caused the damage commenced and was completed. Insurance policies are often changed by builders and developers, and thus, sometimes these cases involve side disputes between insurers to determine the extent of each insurer’s responsibilities. Liability can be confusing as between general contractors and their subcontractors, and among architects, designers and suppliers of construction materials.
