Oregon and Washington Construction Law Update: Tis the Water Intrusion Season

It's that time of year.  It's the rainy season.  For a Portland construction defect lawyer, that means clients are calling about water intrusion claims. 

If you have ever built a home, or if you live in an older home that needs some TLC, you know that construction and maintenance is an ongoing process.  In the rainy, wet Pacific Northwest, our biggest foe is the water.  Improper flashing or inappropriate waterproofing can spell major problems for your home.  Water intrusion can lead to dry rot and dry rot repairs are expensive.

Slinde Nelson Stanford handles construction disputes and remodel contractor lawsuits in Oregon and Washington.  The laws in Oregon and Washington on lawsuits against contractors for faulty construction vary widely.  Maybe most importantly, there are strict timelines within which you must bring your construction defect claim or you might lose it forever.

If a significant part of your net worth is tied up in your home, you should be vigilant in looking for water intrusion around this time of year--particularly if you've recently built the home or remodeled it.

If you already know you have water intrusion issue in your home, contact a Portland construction dispute attorney or a Seattle contractor lawsuit attorney today.
