If you believe that you have a claim for construction defects to your home or business it is very important to preserve the evidence. Also, you should place the contractor and/or other construction professional(s) on notice and give them an opportunity to inspect prior to making repairs. However, emergency repairs are generally permissible. Failure to follow this process may allow your adversary to assert the defense of spoliation of evidence--basically, the defense of "the evidence has been intentionally destroyed."
