Real World Examples of Construction Blunders in Winston Salem That We’ve Helped Correct
Ok, we’ve made our point about the advantages of consulting for these types of jobs. To best illustrate that in a real world way, here are a few examples from North Carolina jobs we’ve worked via construction consulting.
Erroneous drainage systems. In one commercial building we addressed, a water drainage pipe was set up for one long, dramatic vertical drop that dumped directly onto concrete as it exited the building. Trouble was, the vertical drop caused the water to exit the pipe at high speed, hitting that concrete beneath extremely hard.
It’d caused major cracks and erosion, both of which caused leaks and water build up. After repairing the damaged concrete, we rigged a curved slope into the drainage pipe to taper off the water speed upon its exit, creating a far gentler drain that would not cause future issues for the concrete.
Cheap exterior materials and paint. This one notably came into play in a luxury apartment complex. The original construction contractors clearly were going for choices that made the building look high end on a budget, and whether it’d last was unimportant.
Not 2 years later did the sides of the units visible from the streets begin to show major wear. The property management company probably felt it hadn’t yet recouped its original investment yet from tenants, yet the exteriors already needed to be addressed.
Or, as an alternative, leave it be and allow an increasingly run-down appearance work directly against the appeal of what are supposed to be high end luxury apartments.
