Construction Defect Attorneys in the Lowcountry

South Carolina property owners are entitled to receive quality construction that is built in accordance with law and free from defects. When issues arise from failures in materials or workmanship, a residential builder or contractor, as well as their subcontractors, are subject to legal liability for the damages arising from these construction defects. Under the right circumstances, this liability exists even if the owner of the structure is not the original owner that contracted with the builder.
