Latent defects in Arizona construction projects can take years to appear
Sometimes, construction defects in Arizona do not always appear right away. It might take years before a problem emerges with a building. When this happens, these problems are known as latent defects.
Latent defects can cover a wide range. In some cases, expansive soils underneath the structure can slowly expand and shift over time, resulting in settlement cracks or stucco cracks and damage. Other times, below grade walls can crack or collapse over time due to water damage or roof leaks.
How latent defects occur
In many instances, these common construction defects can be traced back to defective workmanship or even architect negligence. The hardest part is producing evidence that illustrates a clear link to the latent defects and irresponsible decisions made by the architect or builder years ago. Many people might also think they don’t have a case since the statute of limitations in construction defect claims may have expired.
