A UTAH CONTRACTOR’S GUIDE TO CONSTRUCTION DEFECT STATUTES OF LIMITATION AND STATUTES OF REPOSE

For a contractor, the start of a new project means coordinating what can often feel like a thousand moving pieces. When this happens, it’s easy to forget to take in account time limitations for contractual and warranty claims on the work you’re about to provide.

Before entering into any work on a project, always consider both the time limitations for claims that other parties may file against you, as well as those for claims that you may file against subcontractors or suppliers. If you are not careful, you could be surprised to find yourself responsible years later for claims that you thought had expired or would be covered by your subcontractor or supplier.
