Construction Defects

Holding Construction Companies Accountable for Home Defects

Sacramento Civil Litigation Attorney

Everything important to you is in your home: Your family, your valued possessions, your memories. That’s why you expect it to be safe, strong and secure. When a construction defect affects your ability to feel safe in your home, or causes you to move out entirely, you need to make sure that the builder responsible is held accountable – not only for financial damages, but for all of your out-of-pocket expenses.

At Colderbank Law Inc., we help homeowners in the Sacramento area, including the Stonebriar and Serrano communities and throughout Northern California, get their due compensation from construction companies for a wide range of building defects. If there is a defect in the construction of your single-family home, town home, or condominium, we can help.

  • Plumbing defects
  • Ground movement or sinking (subsidence) and other soil issues
