By Kyle Barnett | May 31, 2013

GRETNA – A Jefferson Parish couple is suing a local window installer after the windows purchased allegedly began to leak.

Peter G. and Barbara Vicari filed suit against Window World Inc. and Window World of Baton Rouge LLC in the 24th Judicial District Court on April 8.

The Vicaris claim on June 27, 2008 they contracted with Window World of Baton Rouge to install new windows throughout their home. On May 26, 2010 the plaintiffs saw water leaking from their windows and the defendants made repairs, but again on Sept. 10, 2012 they noticed leaking and afterward found water damage as a result of the leaks throughout heir home. The Vicaris assert that severe damage occurred in their home including rotting of wood studs and mold growth. The plaintiffs claim in an attempt to mitigate any damage they were forced to open up their walls.

The defendant is accused of improper installation, improper remedial action and poor workmanship.

An unspecified amount in damages is sought for property value loss, loss of use of home, construction costs, repair costs, replacement costs for new windows, attorney fees and courts costs.

The Vicaris are represented by Blaine M. Hebert of Marrero-based Hebert Law Firm LLC.

The case has been assigned to Division N Judge Stephen D. Enright Jr.

Case no. 725-649.
