Construction Defects

Construction Defects | Cost Estimation | Schedule Delays

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 construction defects can manifest. We provide construction expert consultation and expert witness testimony based upon our decades of hands-on experience in the construction industry. 

Our experts are fluent in the science of tolerances and specifications published in the industry, such as SMACNA,  NFPA, AWI, as well as governing agencies EPA, OSHA, DOE, and DOT.
