Accomplished Cary Construction Defect Attorney

North Carolina Design Flaw Lawyer

When you buy a home, or hire contractors to build a new home, you have done "your part" by paying for materials and services. In turn, the homebuilders and contractors should do their part by providing a sound, stable and defect-free structure. If they fail to do their part, costs can be incurred that they, not you, should have to pay.

If you face serious construction defects in your home and question your legal rights, you need an experienced construction defects attorney. At The Richards Law Firm PC, our lawyer has extensive experience helping homeowners obtain financial compensation for contractor or builder errors. Contact us today — we are ready to fight for you.

Do not pay for your home twice. Call an experienced North Carolina construction defects lawyer at 866.775.3436 or 919.535.3623.

What Are Construction Defects?

Construction defects include a wide range of builder and contractor errors, including:

  • Design flaws
  • Rock wall defects and failures
  • Roof, siding and stucco failure
  • Sidewalk and driveway problems
  • Water, moisture and drain problems
  • Material and supply defects and failures
  • Defective sewer lines and electrical systems
  • Soil, slope, landscape and erosion problems, including damaging runoff from neighbors' yards


Attorney Kimberly Richards has a deep background successfully obtaining financial compensation for construction defects in planned communities, single-family homes, condominiums and townhouses. We represent homeowners against homebuilders, general contractors and subcontractors.

We are proud of our successful track record, including:

  • In a construction defect case, the firm won a judgment against a contractor for building a defective rock wall prior to trial and received sanctions against a well known defense firm.

  • In construction defect case, the firm successfully represented retired Navy veteran against aggressive general contractor that sued Navy Vet for breach of contract and punitive damages arising out of failed construction project. The contractor was attempting to bankrupt the Vet and take his home. The firm won summary judgment resulting in the court ruling that contractor's case was dismissed. In addition, the firm counter sued the general contractor and obtained an award of $49,844.00 for the Navy Vet.
