Things That Can Cause a Construction Claim


Visitors: 151

In construction, a construction company bids on a job - such as building a house or remodeling a home - and they are given a set amount of money if they happen to win the bid. Unfortunately, things happen when you are doing construction on a home.

For example, the construction company may have underbid the materials needed to build the house so the allotted amount of money meant to pay for the labor is now being used to pay for more materials, or the job is taking a lot longer because of other things that may not be the construction company's fault.

In a lot of cases the home owner does not want to pay any more to the construction company because they feel that it is not their fault that a problem arose, but in reality it is no one's fault and the home owner should pay the company so the company can finish the work.

That is when the construction company in the first place should have a contract in place that the homeowner needs to sign so that all bases are covered. But some times the homeowner will dispute the contract and take it to court if they feel that the company they hired isn't fulfilling their end of the bargain.

For example, if the construction goes over deadline they may feel like they do not owe that company for the extra time spent. The world of construction is a very competitive job and can be very complicated if you do not cover your bases correctly. Not to mention it can be very hard for the homeowner if they do not feel that they are being treated as they should.

If a claim should arise, take in careful consideration of what the claim is truly about. If the claim is going to cost more money in court then it does just dealing with it, it may not be worth your time. If you are unsure, contact a lawyer to find out if your claim is going to help you out in the long run, they will go over the contract with you and decide if the case is a strong case.
