NEW ORLEANS - Claiming its floor is grossly discolored as a result of the improper application of UV resistant paint, a marine sales and service business has filed a lawsuit against Sherwin-Williams for the cost associated with removing the old paint and applying a new coat of paint and UV resistant top coat.
Bow2Stern Services Inc. filed suit on May 4 in federal court in New Orleans.
Bow2Stern Services owns a 14,200 square foot building in Houma for its marine engine component sales and service business.
The plaintiff claims it hired Sherwin-Williams for the application of the floor paint and topcoat of surface products on the floor of the newly constructed building.
The plaintiff claims it has large sections of grossly discolored flooring, which is distracting and unprofessional looking.
The defendant is accused of breaching its duty to provide correct instructions in the use, application and placement of the paint.
Bow2Stern Services is asking the Court for an award of damages for cots of labor, paint and topcoat products, remediation costs, labor, lost work time, lost profits, court costs, and interest.
The plaintiff is represented by Thomas K. Watkins Jr. and Samuel J. Markus of the Markus Law Firm in Houma.
U.S. District Judge Carl J. Barbier is assigned to the case.
Case No. 2:12-cv-01137
