Have you been hurt because of faulty building work?
When you need work done to your home, you may rely on a range of skilled workmen and women. As new legislation means that people must have special certifications to carry out certain jobs, fewer people are able to complete larger DIY projects and they must rely on professionals for help.
If, for example, you’re installing a new bathroom, you may need help from numerous professionals, such as a plasterer, an electrician and a plumber, not to mention a tiler or decorator. As most people simply rely on these people to do their jobs, they assume that all work will be completed to a high standard and that their home will safe.
However, if just one person doesn’t complete their job appropriately or they make a mistake, it can put you and your family in danger. Whilst unsightly or shoddy work may not be nice to look at, a more sinister problem could be lurking beneath the floorboards or behind the walls.
If, for example, the plumbing wasn’t completed adequately a leak could occur. Whilst many leaks will become apparent fairly quickly, if the leak isn’t visible you may not aware of it until the pressure from the water causes the ceiling to collapse. Similarly, a poorly constructed extension or conservatory could endanger the whole structure.
