Thank you for the post, the applicable statute of limitations runs when the basis of the claim was known or should have been known, and extends two years beyond that date.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
What is the applicable statue of limitation? If I am understanding your response, the time starts at the time I discovered the substandard work. Is that correct?
Expert:  MShore replied 6 years ago.
Yes, that is correct (the time you discovered the substandard work).
