Abstract – Construction defect can be known as a problem in the construction industry that could cause the value of a building decrease eventually. Those defects incur a big cost & it is defined as the value of resource consumption for rework as a consequence of a defect. The causes of these construction defects are either because of poor design, or low quality workmanship, or because the building was not constructed according to the design, or because it has been subject to factors not allowed for in the design or poor supervision. So, the focus of this research was to investigate different types of construction defects in general and causes & effects of construction defects in particular and finally providing procedures which can reduce their occurrence.
Keywords – Construction defect, workmanship, design, poor supervision
