GRETNA – A Metairie couple is suing a flooring company claiming it installed defective flooring in their home.
Megan Aguilar and Roy Aguilar Jr. filed suit against Perque Carpet & Drapery Limited and Armstrong World Industries Inc. in the 24th Judicial District Court on June 18.
The Aguilars allege that in May 2014 they entered into a contract to install hardwood flooring in their home located at 512 Colony Place in Metairie. The plaintiffs contend they put a $5,750 deposit down on the job and that the defendants installed the flooring between June 18 and 19. The Aguilars assert that on June 21, 2014 the hardwood flooring began to separate and they immediately called Perque Carpet & Drapery Limited and Armstrong World Industries Inc. to report the problem.
The plaintiffs claim that an Armstrong World Industries Inc. representative inspected the flooring and discovered the flooring had been damaged prior to its installation. The plaintiffs allege the defendants failed to properly install the flooring and did not meet the contract specifications.
The defendant is accused of breach of contract, violation of the Louisiana Products Liability Act and creating an unreasonable risk of harm.
An unspecified amount in damages is sought for return of their deposit, loss of use of family home, moving expenses, inconvenience, out-of-pocket expenses, storage expenses, lost wages, mental anguish and attorney’s fees.
The Aguilars are represented by Warren Horn of Heller, Draper, Patrick, Horn & Dabney LLC.
The case has been assigned to Division C Judge June Berry Darensburg.
Case no. 750-765.
