This has been a busy year for home builders and subcontractors in New Hanover County and the surrounding area. In fact, compared to this time last year, construction activity is up between 4 and 5 percent. There are scores of new residential developments going up, both in the single-family and multi-family markets. Current homeowners are also enlisting the help of home improvement professionals to update and upgrade their properties.
In the multi-faceted process of home construction, whether the task at hand is new construction, renovation, or an addition, sometimes things just don’t go according to plan. As a local attorney for contractors in Wilmington, Wesley Scott Jones understands all too well the variety of difficulties that can crop up during construction projects. You may have had excellent communication and an ironclad contract, but unforeseen issues can cause major financial headaches plus major inconveniences.
Here are just a few examples of problems that can arise:
- faulty construction
- improper permitting
- work delays
- bid protests
- labor issues
- failure to meet local codes and/or OSHA requirements
- construction defects that can lead to safety and health problems such as leaks and mold
- HOA disputes
