The above images show PVC pipe partially filled with concrete and construction debris. This was photographed on-site at a new construction development. VERTEX served as an expert for this construction defect claim, filed by the property owner claiming faulty plumbing/drainage. Investigation of the plumbing revealed major blockage by construction debris, plaster and dried paint. Plumbing blockage is a common defect identified in a variety of real estate including multi-tenant residential complexes, commercial developments, as well as office space.
