Construction Defects With Roofs In Alaska

In the state of Alaska, severe weather conditions and remote locations can contribute to unique challenges in the construction industry, like planning for heavy snowfall on a roof. Our team of construction law attorneys at Dillon Findley & Simonian, P.C., in Anchorage grew up in Alaska themselves. They understand the environmental issues and challenges that require innovative solutions. They hold those responsible for defective products, construction defects and roof defects accountable for their actions.

What Is A Construction Defect?

In the state of Alaska, if work is not completed according to the construction contract, it can be said that there is a construction defect. Construction defects can include:

  • Mechanical problems or electrical issues
  • Moisture issues that can lead to mold and property damage
  • Structural problems that threaten the integrity of the building

Construction defects can arise because of poorly designed materials, shoddy workmanship, or a failure to follow the construction code requirements. Poorly designed structures can result in a defective design. A lack of planning, supervision or proper inspection can all contribute to a claim for improper construction or a construction defect.

Common Roof Defects In Alaska

Because of its harsh winter climate, roof defect lawsuits are common in Alaska. Roof defects can be caused by improper design and poor workmanship, exposure to the elements, especially cold, snow and ice. If the materials used were of a poor quality, improperly installed or not maintained adequately, the following problems can occur:

  • Leaks, ponding water and ice damns
  • Roof shrinkage
  • Roof failures
  • Wind damage that blows and damages the roof edges or rips at the roof system or membrane
