What is a Building Defect?
Building defects encompass issues in major components of a structure, stemming from faulty design, workmanship, materials, or non-compliance with structural performance standards set by the National Construction Code. Under the Home Building Act, a major defect is one that renders a building or part of it uninhabitable, leads to its destruction, or poses a risk of collapse. These defects carry significant implications and can give rise to various legal challenges for property owners.
What Are Common Building Defects in Residential Construction?
Examples of common building defects that frequently occur in residential construction projects includes:
- Significant structural cracks
- Major roof leaks
- Water penetration resulting from failed waterproofing, windows, or roofs
- Structural defects in load-bearing walls
It is important to recognize that these defects, when classified as major, can have severe implications for homeowners. They can render a home unsafe for habitation, diminish its value, and cause substantial emotional and financial distress. Homeowners in Muswellbrook are afforded specific legal remedies under the Home Building Act, including options for monetary damages and rectification work orders.
