What Are Construction Disputes?

Construction disputes happen despite the best-drafted plans and contracts. Mistakes, delays and unforeseeable circumstances can arise. A contractor that you hire and trust may not perform the job properly or an owner with whom you’ve contracted may improperly withhold payment. Sometimes, terms in the contract are unclear, and you need a legal interpretation of the clause. If any of these issues involving a construction agreement arise, Seidensticker and San Filippo can help. Construction disputes can involve the following:
  • Contract disputes
  • Construction delays
  • Nonpayment
  • Nonperformance
  • Roofing defects
  • Water intrusion
  • Hurricane recovery
  • Toxic mold
  • Construction liens
  • Insurance coverage disputes
  • Defective materials
  • Unauthorized substitution of substandard materials
