The Experience You Need for Your Construction Defect Claim
Collin Fuller has experience representing homeowners in bringing construction defect claims against the party or parties at fault, including contractors, subcontractors, developers and manufacturers. Construction defect claims arise when a beach house, townhome or condominium is not built, remodeled, or repaired properly, and the contractor’s poor performance results in property damage to the structure.
Under South Carolina Law, builders and subcontractors are required to comply with recognized standards, including those established by the building code, industry practice, and product installation instructions. When contractors fail to comply with the standards applicable to their trade, they may be liable to the owner of the property for all the harm their negligence has caused. In many cases construction defects are hidden and do not manifest themselves for several years until after significant damage has arisen. Cases involving such latent defects can be much more challenging and complex to prove, requiring advice and representation from a skilled and experienced construction defect lawyer.
Construction defects commonly involve windows, roof systems, and exterior cladding or siding, such as cementitious, wood, or vinyl siding, brick or stone veneer, and stucco systems. These defects can result in serious damage to your home, diminution in property value, and in some cases safety hazards to the occupants. Fuller Law handles these types of claims for single-family homes, duplexes, beach houses, condominiums, townhomes, apartments, offices and commercial buildings.

Representing Homeowners Facing Condemnation/Eminent Domain
Collin Fuller represents both condemning authorities and landowners in condemnation proceedings and is well-versed in the law and process surrounding eminent domain. If a government agency is exercising its power to take your property, it must be for a lawful purpose, and you must be provided with just compensation. Fuller Law Firm represents landowners in condemnation proceedings to ensure proper compensation is paid.
Construction Disputes and Litigation
Attorney Fuller applies his knowledge and experience in the construction industry to represent both owners and contractors in construction disputes and litigation. Litigation in the context of construction projects usually stems from defective or unsatisfactory construction conditions, payment issues, or other contractual disputes. Fuller Law Firm works in negotiation, mediation, arbitration or the courtroom to settle matters efficiently and effectively across a range of construction disputes, including lien enforcement, fraudulent liens, payment and performance bond claims, workouts, delay claims, bid protests, and more.
