Attorney James Lee Floyd III

Prior to forming the Floyd Law Firm, Lee practiced with the Lucey Law Firm for a little over five and a half (5.5) years. During that time, Lee’s practice focused on helping consumers who have been damaged due to defective consumer products and deficiencies in the construction of residential housing. Lee’s cases ranged from multi-million dollar projects to single-family homes. 

Before joining the firm, Lee practiced for six and a half (6.5) years at a larger civil defense firm in Columbia, South Carolina, where his practice primarily involved serving as defense counsel in insurance coverage cases, bad faith litigation, professional liability actions, and commercial transportation cases. 

While in law school, Lee was a member of the Editorial Board of the South Carolina Law Review, a member of South Carolina School of Law Moot Court Bar, and the Recipient of the Roberts Most Outstanding Research Paper Award. Lee and his wife, Kelli, live on Johns Island along with their three children.

Common Construction Defects

WATER INTRUSION
ROOF LEAKS
FOUNDATION CRACKS
Water intrusion is the uncontrolled movement of water or water vapor into areas in a building where it is unwanted and undesirable. Water intrusion is a serious issue that is typically related to a defect in the way a home was constructed. It often is due to faulty installation of windows, siding, and/or exterior doors. Water intrusion typically takes a significant amount of time to become visible on the interior of a home and is often accompanied by substantial, non-visible damages behind the exterior cladding of a home, such as brick veneer, hardieplank siding or vinyl siding.
A roof leak can be identified as an accidentally discharge of contents, especially liquid or gas, through a hole or crack. Like water intrusion, roof leaks are serious issues that often go undetected by homeowners because they take a significant amount of time to show up on the interior surfaces of a home. At first, these issues may only appear in the attic and are often attributable to faulty construction.
Foundation cracks are considered to be a line on the surface of the structural foundation along which it has split without breaking into separate parts. Furthermore, this may lead to basement leaks and further structural damage. The proper performance of a foundation is integral to the structural stability of a home. While contractors will often tell homeowners that “all concrete cracks,” there are different types of cracks that can show up in foundations. Concrete slabs cracking due to settlement (differential settlement or otherwise) is a serious concern and may be due to defects in the preparation of the ground supporting the home.
