Drip, drip, drip: when water intrusion issues loom large

Home ownership is an obvious source of great pride for hardworking individuals and families throughout Minnesota and adjoining states in the Midwest.

That pride is duly accompanied by an appreciation that a residence needs to be well constructed and maintained to keep -- and hopefully appreciate in -- its value and serve its fundamental purpose as a long-term dwelling for, perhaps, generations of families.

Structural integrity that is grounded in good workmanship and quality building materials is an essential requirement for homes in the upper Midwest, given the vagaries of nature and the sheer force that often marks the seasons and weather transformations throughout the region. Family homes must be built solidly to withstand the elements, dealing year after year with strong sun, cold winds, heavy snows, driving rain, sleet and hail.

Unfortunately, property owners are sometimes victimized by builders and various contractors who skimp on materials and take short cuts in their work.

Almost nowhere are such shortcomings more clearly evidenced than with water intrusion. Water damage can quickly and severely damage a home. If bad enough, it can render a residence uninhabitable and even ruin a home outright.

At Roeder Smith Jadin, PLLC, our Midwest Water Intrusion Claims attorneys know water damage when they see it and can trace it back to its source. Sometimes that is the improper installation of stucco or a home's siding; at other times, damage from water intrusion owes to the substandard work that builders do in constructing a roof or in installing shingles or flashing. Shoddy work done in installing windows is also a frequent cause of water leaks.

Over time, water damage can lead to mold and flatly unhealthy conditions inside a home.

When you're a homeowner who contracted with a builder in good faith and paid hard-earned money for your home, you have a reasonable expectation that your residence was constructed as warranted and that your builder will stand behind the work that was done.

When that doesn't turn out to be the case, seasoned construction defect litigation attorneys can advocate with passion and diligence on your behalf.

That is what we do with great pride for all our clients at Roeder Smith Jadin, PLLC. We welcome your inquiries.
