Construction defects had addresses as big issues in construction industries. This paper explains the problems on major construction defects which commonly happened in high rise building and approaches to manage them. It has been proved that many big projects have a history of failure with non-completion, massive delay and cost overruns. Too excessive defects in the building incurred high cost for maintenance and reduce the aesthetic value of the property. Thus, commonly major defects which keep happening must be managed correctly or else it will become worse. Initially, there were many factors actually contributed to the defects, and these factors need to be well managed in order to reduce defective works. Moreover, the issues and problem faced by building professional when they deal with defects become one of the obstacles in managing defects. Thus, good construction defect management must be adopted by all the building professional because excessive cost of defects may be reduced or eliminated by only putting some effort and investing small amount of money at initial stage.
