GRETNA – A customer is suing a renovation business, alleging she paid more than $31,000 for renovations that were never made.
Tammy Gabriel filed a suit against William Richard and W&A Customer Renovations Dec. 29 in the 24th Judicial District Court, alleging breach of contract and damages.
According to the complaint, the defendants provided an estimate for work to Gabriel's home that included replacing windows, interior trim, renovating two bathrooms, new cabinets in the kitchen as well as granite sinks and countertops.
The total estimate was $31,353, the suit says, and Gabriel paid the first installment in October 2015 and the remainder in December 2015, but the work was not completed.
The suit says the defendants failed to complete renovations to holes in garage walls, renovations to the garage door, left electrical wires exposed, failed to properly renovate both bathrooms and other problems. The home was caused to suffer damages due to water and termite issues, the lawsuit states.
The defendants breached the contract and caused damages to Gabriel's home, rendering them responsible for the repairs, the suit states.
Gabriel seeks seeking payment for damages caused, as well as attorney fees and court costs. She is represented by attorneys Jon S. McGill and Donald Dorenkamp II of Gretna.
The case has been assigned to Division M Judge Henry G. Sullivan Jr.
The 24th Judicial District Court Case number 767787.
