FAIRFIELD, CA Twenty one homeowners in the City of Fairfield neighborhood of Southbrook have filed a construction defect lawsuit in Solano County Superior Court against West Coast Homebuilders, Inc. and Albert D. Seeno Construction Co. The lawsuit was filed on behalf of the homeowners by the Walnut Creek law firm of Kasdan Simonds Weber & Vaughan LLP.
According to the lawsuit, the homes, which were purchased new after January 2003, are affected by multiple construction defects ranging from defectively designed and constructed roofs and sheet metal assemblies to defective concrete that is being damaged by the corrosive soils environment on which the homes are built.
Other problems include water intrusion resulting in rotting of drywall and damage to walls, wall coverings, carpeting, and flooring that produces mold inside the homes; defective windows and door installation resulting water intrusion; defectively designed and installed plumbing, electrical and mechanical systems; defectively designed and constructed stucco and foundation systems; and defectively designed and constructed drainage systems.
A firm partner of its Walnut Creek office said the plaintiffs homes in the Southbrook neighborhood were not built in accordance with approved plans/specification, and are in violation of applicable building codes. These are relatively new homes and the alleged defects in these homes are quite disturbing for these homeowners. Along with the homeowners loss of comfort and enjoyment, these homes appear to be of such poor quality that the homeowners already find it necessary to initiate legal action.
An earlier lawsuit was filed by the Kasdan Simonds firm on behalf of 36 other homeowners in the Southbrook neighborhood against West Coast Homebuilders, Inc. and Albert D. Seeno Construction Co. That suit is still pending.
