Don’t let contractors cut corners with modern, lower quality building materials

On Behalf of | Jun 24, 2020 | Construction Law

Custom-built homes or remodels are expensive enough already, so it’s important you receive the quality product that you paid for. Regardless of whether you’re planning to sell your home or live in it forever, you have specific expectations for the finished product.

Unfortunately, some contractors complete work that appears high quality, while actually delivering a lower quality product than you previously thought. It used to be far more difficult for contractors to cut corners with building material quality used in remodels or construction projects. While technology used to create synthetic materials for materials like flooring is always getting better, homeowners may not immediately notice a substitution of lower-quality materials for the real thing.

If you’re expecting and have paid for hardwood flooring, for instance, contractors could use cheaper, lower-cost materials like vinyl flooring instead. This could reduce the value of your home and should also reduce value of the construction work done. If you’ve discovered that a contractor intentionally cut corners on a construction project or remodel of your home, you may need to pursue construction litigation.

If you believe a contractor installed lower-cost and lower-quality materials than what you paid for, we can help.
