As explained in the 1976 Supreme Court decision in Levesque v. D & M Builders, Inc., "[f]or a breach of a construction contract involving defective or unfinished construction, damages are measured by computing either (i) the reasonable cost of construction and completion in accordance with the contract, if this is possible and does not involve unreasonable economic waste; or (ii) the difference between the value that the product contracted for would have had and the value of the performance that has been received ….if construction and completion in accordance with the contract would involve unreasonable economic waste."
