Dear PoPville – Do You Think We Have Any Legal Recourse?

Dear PoPville,

I own and live in a rather new and large condo building in NW DC. Although there have been minor problems from the start, we have found, roughly 3 or 4 years after construction, that there are major and multiple faults with the building. Strong storms in 2011 have led to water leaks and damage. We have discovered that windows were not storm-proofed properly and an entire wall of the building was constructed improperly and not waterproofed. Estimates to fix the structural source of these problems could be in the millions. Unfortunately, the Master Insurance Policy, as well as our own Homeowners Insurance, does not cover fixing these problems, just the acute damage. The builder also seems to be immune as their liability expired 2 years after construction. Is there any legal recourse for us?
