If your home is newly constructed and you’re already experiencing foundation problems, you may be able to take legal action. It’s important to move quickly to protect the value of your home. In Colorado, you have as little as two years to take legal action once you discover a problem, and discussions with your builder do not pause this timeline. If you notice any of the following signs on your newly constructed (or under construction) home, please call us.

Signs you may have construction defects

  • Binding windows or doors

  • Drainage issues on your property (water or ice accumulation)

  • Cracking, heaving or settling in concrete

  • Cracks in foundation walls, brick, or stone siding

  • Cracks in stucco

  • Cracks in walls or ceiling

  • Sloping patio or areas around the perimeter of the house

  • Sagging framing

The Process

Our engineers will perform an inspection to determine the cause and origin of your foundation problem. If it’s due to something your builder did, or failed to do, we can provide excellent attorney referrals in your area. The engineer will then work with your attorney and prepare a Notice of Claim letter, if requested. The intention of the letter is to provide an opportunity for the builder to respond with a settlement plan to reasonably repair the issue. If this is refused, we will assist with all the proper documentation, and even expert testimony, as needed for your case. Foundation Pro Engineering and your attorney will be your team to resolve the issues and to get you the home you paid for.
