Defective construction happens and when it does, the costs are huge. The more you know about the root causes of construction defects before they happen, the more you can prevent the cause.
Quality Built is one of the nation’s leading third-party QA (Quality Assurance) inspection companies. Based on data collected from thousands of projects, Quality Built has published the top 10 construction defects observed across the U.S. in 2018.
The list of defects are in order of construction sequence, not frequency. The post-construction repair costs are rough estimates and reflect nationwide averages, but do not include the consequential costs of dealing with construction defect issues, such as time and litigation.
