Land Subsidence, Quality of Workmanship, and Materials Issues

After payment and collections issues, quality of workmanship, materials issues and land subsidence are some of the most common causes of construction and post-construction disputes. Last & Faoro, headquartered in San Mateo, California, has developed a reputation for effectively representing contractors, subcontractors, suppliers and design professionals in workmanship, materials issues and land subsidence disputes.

What Type Of Issue Has Arisen Post-Construction?

At Last & Faoro, our attorneys understand that California and San Francisco Bay area construction projects require the close coordination between owners, contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers. In addition to being profitable the quality of workmanship and the quality of materials must be of a quality that the finished building will withstand the test of time. Our firm has significant experience handling the analysis, negotiation and dispute resolution related to:

  • Construction defect litigation
  • Material selection disputes
  • Insurance coverage disputes regarding the defense of construction defect claims
  • Quality of work claims against contractors, subcontractors, architects and engineers
  • Indemnity claims

Our attorneys are knowledgeable in the standards of care for construction. In addition, our firm regularly works with a number of construction forensic firms to analyze the workmanship and materials problems and determine which contractor, subcontractor, or supplier was responsible for substandard material or construction.

Is There A Subsidence Issue?

Since much of the land in the Bay Area is on unsettled ground, it is important for contractors and subcontractors to properly prepare building sites to prevent land subsistence issues that can cause structural problems to residential, commercial and public works buildings. Last & Faoro has successfully handled a number of land subsistence cases for owners and contractors.
