2.

Except as otherwise provided in this subsection, an action may be commenced against the owner, occupier or any person performing or furnishing the design, planning, supervision or observation of construction, or the construction of an improvement to real property at any time after the substantial completion of such an improvement, for the recovery of damages for any act of fraud in causing a deficiency in the design, planning, supervision or observation of construction or the construction of such an improvement. The provisions of this subsection do not apply to any lower-tiered subcontractor who performs work that covers up a defect or deficiency in another contractor’s trade if the lower-tiered subcontractor does not know, and should not reasonably know, of the existence of the alleged defect or deficiency at the time of performing such work.
