Today a Bucks County jury awarded homeowners $151,325.00 against The Cutler Group, Inc. d/b/a The David Cutler Group for the defective construction of their stucco home in Jamison, Pennsylvania. The homeowners alleged that their home was so poorly built that it violated the implied warranty of habitability, due to defective and missing flashing details and other defects which permitted water to leak into the home and rot the wood substrate behind the stucco exterior. David Cutler himself testified during the three day trial. As in other cases we have handled, Cutler again argued that the homeowners, who did not buy their home as new construction but instead bought from the intial purchasers of the home, had no right to sue. The homeowners were forced to fix the house at their own expense and then sue Cutler for their damages. If you are living in a stucco house that suffers from construction defects like leaking windows, missing or improperly installed flashing, or water infiltration and mold behind your stucco walls, please call us for a consultation.
