Construction defects occur in both commercial and residential buildings. New construction is usually assumed to be made with better materials and of a more stable design, but due to reasons such as poor craftsmanship or a failure to follow proper architectural plans, specifications and procedures, new construction can have its flaws. The construction experts at D.A. Doddridge and Associates, Inc. are experts in knowing the many ways these defects can manifest.
