A construction defect is a failure in workmanship either defined by industry standards or the Florida Building Code. It’s important, if you believe that you are facing a construction defect, that you consult with an attorney who is familiar with Chapter 558. There’s an entire statutory procedure whereby the builder is notified of the potential defect and given an opportunity to inspect and remediate prior to litigation.
