BUILDING MOVEMENT (SOILS OR FRAMING)
Many of our clients report damage to their property which may be attributable to excessive building movement. This may be caused by movement of the soils under the foundation of the house; foundation design issues; framing deficiencies leading to structural problems; or a combination of factors. The following pictures show conditions which may have resulted from excessive movement of the building structure, including:
- Drywall, stucco and concrete slab cracks and separation
- Cracks in flooring tile and countertops
- Doors out of alignment
- Separation of fences and walls
DISCLAIMER: The photos above are for illustration and reference purposes only. Your property may or may not have the issues represented above, and no legal representations, guarantees or warranties are made with respect to the ability to recover for the same or similar issues. The existence of a defect or construction problem, including those illustrated above, does not necessarily mean that there is a legal basis for recovery. There are several statutes of limitations, applicable laws, building codes and possible legal defenses which will impact a homeowner’s or homeowner associations’ ability to assert a claim and recover damages or other legal relief. Questions about the foregoing should be directed to one of our attorneys.
