Building onto your home or remodeling your residence is a big job. You have to plan your project so that you are out of your home (or at least a portion of your home) for an extended period of time. Meanwhile, the construction project kicks up dust, dirt, and a lot of debris—making the transition from your old space to your new space a hectic one.
When something goes wrong during renovation or after the project has been completed, you might be surprised to find out how unaccommodating your contractor is in helping you resolve the issue. Under Savannah construction law, you may be entitled to compensation. However, getting this compensation is not always as easy or accessible as many homeowners anticipate.
Common Homeowner Construction Disputes in Savannah
It is important to remember that you are not alone in your dispute. Here are some of the most common conflicts homeowners have with the contractors they employ to work on their homes:
- Breach of contract between you and your general contractor (or between the general contractor and sub-contractors) that impacts your project and the quality of the final outcome.
- Compliancy issues for all requirements of your project.
- Breach of warranty, such as the implied and express warranty in your project.
- Worker negligence, where subcontractors and contractors fail to use proper safety measures and standards of care.
- Regulation disputes with homeowners’ associations and zoning laws.
- Damages for the investigation, repair, waste, loss of business (if you work out of your home) and more.
When you notice something is wrong, you may not know whether you have a claim, or if you are able to get your concern resolved. The construction law in Georgia can help.
