Construction Defect Services

VERTEX helps clients investigate and manage construction defect claims. We investigate the nature and extent of damage caused by substandard work, design errors and omissions, and material deficiencies. We evaluate plaintiff declarations to determine if repair scopes and costs are reasonable. We help our clients assess responsibility and allocate liability. VERTEX is unique in that we tender our cost-to-repair reports as formal bids to complete the work. This verifies the legitimacy of our estimates and promotes fair settlements.
