Construction Defect Litigation

Matthews, Shiels, Knott, Eden, Davis & Beanland, L.L.P., has extensive experience in construction defect litigation. Our lawyers have handled cases throughout the state of Texas, involving cases where the projects in question have been hotels, condominium projects, apartment buildings, warehouses, office buildings, and single family homes. The breadth of our experience encompasses the full range of construction issues, including site preparation and foundation issues, structural issues, fireproofing issues, mechanical issues, water intrusion and mold issues with respect to various types of roofing products, exterior cladding materials (stucco, EIFS, brick, stone, CMU, and curtain wall), and windows products.

The complexity of the projects that we worked on has varied from multi-million dollar commercial projects to relatively modest-sized single family homes. The complex litigation matters have involved from dozens to thousands of parties and tens of millions of dollars in damages claims. We also have extensive experience in the area of mold claims, both personal injury and property damage. In the course of this work, we have represented owners, developers, general contractors, construction managers, trade contractors, and product manufacturers and suppliers.
