San Antonio Construction Defects Attorney

Holding Construction Companies Accountable for Home Defects


Everything important to you is in your home: Your family, your valued possessions, your memories. That’s why you expect it to be safe, strong and secure. When a significant construction defect affects your ability to feel good about your investment in your home, or causes you to move out entirely, you need to make sure that the builder responsible is held accountable – not only for financial damages, but for all of your out-of-pocket expenses.

If you are a homeowner and have a dispute with a home builder, contractor, or remodeler related to your home, your dispute is probably covered by a law called the Residential Construction Liability Act (RCLA). When contracting with builders, attempting to resolve disputes and understanding what your legal rights are, it is important to contact an attorney. The RCLA applies to most claims to recover damages arising from residential construction defects.

At the Law Office of Bryan A Woods, we help homeowners in the San Antonio and Central Texas area receive just compensation from builders and construction companies for a wide range of significant building defects or foundation defects. Mr. Woods has over 25 years experience successfully pursuing and winning claims involving builder and construction defect disputes.  If there is a significant defect in the construction of your single-family home, town home, or condominium, we can help.

  • Inadequate drainage, including water pooling, water ponding, and faulty French drains
  • Plumbing defects
