Construction Defects

Arizona Construction Defect Law Firm

Legal Help When Your New Home is Defective

A home is one of the largest investments of your life. Cracking walls in new homes, leaking roofs and water damage, mold—these are new home defects that can greatly devalue your property and create health risks.

You can hold a bad home builder accountable and get financial compensation. If you think your new home's defects were caused by poor construction, contact the law firm of Carmichael & Powell, P.C. to get an informed opinion from a knowledgeable attorney.

We represent homeowners and homeowner's associations in the greater Phoenix, Arizona area in bringing construction defect lawsuits against builders.

Experience on Your Side

The construction defect litigation team at Carmichael & Powell brings a combined 60 years of courtroom experience to your case. Attorney David J. Sandoval's extensive knowledge of construction processes is the result of experience and exposure to the family construction business.

It is not normal for new homes to have excessive cracking in the walls within the first year. Expansive soil or geological abnormalities should be suspected if you have had excessive wall cracking. Some Arizona soils are prone to shifting, but with proper soil and pad preparation during initial construction, cracking should be minimal. If it is not, that is usually a sign of improper soil preparation and poor workmanship. 

The Arizona construction defect attorneys at Carmichael & Powell have had great success in recovering financial damages for misrepresentation and breach of implied warranty. We access construction and geological experts to assess the cause of your home problem and to provide a complete and accurate accounting of your losses in terms of diminished home value, cost of repairs, and loss of use and enjoyment.

Your Carmichael & Powell real estate attorney works on a contingency fee basis for most construction defect cases. This means that we charge no attorneys fees unless we obtain money on your behalf.

You don't need to suffer in silence. Contact an Arizona construction defect law lawyer at Carmichael & Powell.
