What is a Building Defect?
According to the Home Building Act, a major flaw in a building’s major component resulting from poor design, poor construction, poor materials, or failing to meet the structural performance requirements of the National Construction Code (or a combination of these factors) is referred to as a “building defect.”
According to the Home Building Act, a substantial defect is expressly described as a flaw in a significant component of the building that is attributable to poor design, poor craftsmanship, poor materials, or noncompliance with the National Construction Code’s structural performance criteria.
A serious flaw must either make the building inappropriate for its intended use, result in the building’s destruction, or present a threat of collapse in order to qualify.
What Are Common Building Defects in Residential Construction?
In residential construction, several common major defects can significantly impact homeowners’ safety, property value, and overall well-being. Some of these defects include:
Significant Structural fractures: Structural fractures that jeopardise the stability of load-bearing components like walls and foundations are examples of these flaws.
Major Roof Leaks: Severe roof leaks that lead to water penetration, causing potential damage to the interior and structure.
Failed Waterproofing: Water penetration due to inadequate waterproofing, leading to dampness and mould issues.
Failed Windows or Roof: Malfunctioning windows or roof components that permit water or air infiltration.
These major defects can render homes unsafe and uninhabitable. Homeowners in Camden and surrounding suburbs must be vigilant in identifying and addressing these issues promptly to protect their investments and ensure a secure living environment. The Home Building Act provides legal remedies, including monetary damages and rectification work orders, to assist homeowners in resolving such defects.
