Our team stays up-to-date on changes in commercial and residential construction laws, ensuring that we provide effective representation to our clients. We are experienced negotiators and litigators, capable of handling cases of all shapes and sizes.
Our construction lawyers are experienced in handling various issues, including but not limited to:
Construction Defect Claims
When a construction project fails to meet building codes, standards, or requirements, the wronged party may seek damages from those responsible. Our residential and commercial Charleston construction defect lawyers can help you pursue a claim for construction defects.
Water Intrusion Claims
Claims may arise when water penetrates and damages building components due to design errors, defective materials, or inferior construction methods.
Surety Claims and Payment and Performance Bonds
If a contractor fails to fulfill their obligations for a project, an owner may pursue legal action against them.
Insurance Coverage for Construction Projects
Insurance coverage for property damage or third-party injury is crucial in the resolution of most construction disputes. Our South Carolina coverage lawyers can help ensure that insurance companies adhere to the terms and conditions of their policies.
Owners may seek legal remedies for work that prematurely failed due to poor workmanship.
Defective Building Products and Materials
The use of substandard or defective materials can lead to property damage or personal injury. Our construction defect team represents owners asserting that the construction products and materials used were deficient.
Breach of Contract Claims
These legal matters arise when one party claims that another party violated contractual terms and conditions. At Garrity Traina, we can effectively handle these often complicated issues.
These claims arise when a project is off track due to the actions or inactions of the at-fault party.
Contractors or subcontractors who have not received payment from a client may pursue a claim against the property to seek compensation.
Conflicts can arise when one party believes they have not received the required payment or that financial obligations have already been fulfilled.
Defective Design Claims
Deficiencies in the design or administration of a construction project could lead to premature failures or structural inadequacies that cause property damage or personal injury.
EIFS, MDF Trim, and Other Synthetic Building Materials
The use of synthetic materials that were not properly evaluated, tested, sealed, or installed has led to property damage.
