Malaysia is among one of the development countries that growing advanced in all sectors especially in construction industry. Structure defect is one of the issues that relate to commercial building and significantly needed attention.

Follow by, cracking of column, honeycomb in concrete and racking of wall. The most significant factor affecting the structure defect in commercial building is weather and environment condition. In conclusion, this structure defect problem would be an important thing and should minimize the structure defect by knowing the ways to overcome when structure defect occur immediately.
