Construction defects can cause a multitude of problems, ranging from more minor issues such as stains, discoloration, or bacterial growth from water damage to potentially life-threatening issues like the separation of building materials causing cracks or the loss of structural integrity.  Other common defects may include deterioration, dry-rot, noises from loose framing, uneven surfaces, and unfinished or poorly finished conditions.
