Tile expert witnesses must often be familiar with varying materials, as construction projects may utilize stone tiles, marble tiles, granite tiles, and other types found within flooring installations and masonry. Tiles, which are pieces of concrete, clay, or other similar material molded into a square or rectangular shape, are often used in the field of construction. Like any building material, however, tiles may become the subject of a lawsuit when not properly implemented. Because tiles are one component featured among a high number of various types of materials and means of construction, tiles expert witnesses are often from a background in several areas of the construction industry. Lawsuits involving tiles may result from different scenarios related to problems with the method of tile installation, the effects of tiles on the overall construction, or an issue with the tiles themselves based on faulty material or product defects, among other possible issues.
As with any project on a construction site, tile deck assemblies performed by tile contractors must adhere to certain rules and regulations. Violating these building codes and compliance may result in tile failure and construction defects in the design and build of the floors. Tile expert witnesses may be asked to provide an expert opinion on the matter based on a forensic inspection of the tiles in question.
