“I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!”
Cities around the metro-Denver area are introducing and passing dangerous construction defect ordinances faster than I can even count. This is bad news for buyers of new homes who expect developers to either build their home right the first time – or to make it right if there are serious defects.
Local mayors and city councils are passing these measures to shield developers from liability when they build defective homes. I am shocked and appalled that elected officials would strip their constituents’ rights in order to appease deep-pocketed builders.
Those of us unlucky enough to buy homes with expensive and dangerous construction defects – crumbling foundations, structurally deficient walls, leaky roofs and more – are no longer willing to stand by and allow developers blame us, the victims of construction defects, for the lack of affordable housing.
We won’t apologize for fighting to have legal options to hold our builders responsible for making us whole again. The last thing we need to do is give a pass to builders who cut corners and produce shoddy homes. The construction industry should demand a culture of excellence rather than lobbying to escape responsibility for substandard work.
It’s everyday Coloradans vs. developers cutting corners and it has to stop now. If you’re mad as hell and you’re not going to take it anymore, please sign below and let your city councilors know that you’re watching!
