HUNTINGTON -- A Huntington couple is suing another individual after they claim he breached his contract with them.
On April 23, 2010, Michael Matt entered into an oral contract with William and Geisha Miller to repair the roof of the Miller residence, according to a complaint filed May 22 in Cabell Circuit Court.
The Millers claim Matt agreed to perform the construction in a workmanlike manner and had an implied duty to repair the roof in that manner.
Matt failed to repair the roof in a workmanlike manner and caused multiple leaks, damage to personal property, damage to the structure of the Miller residence, depreciation of the value of the home, the introduction of mold and mildew, extensive damage to the ceiling and walls of the home and other damages, according to the suit.
The Millers claim as a result of the defendant's failure, they obtained estimates for the proper repair of the roof, which is $23,000. The Millers have suffered additional damages in the amount of $18,500 for the diminished market value of the home.
The Millers are seeking compensatory damages in the amount of $63,500. They are being represented by John A. Proctor and A. Courtenay Craig.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge David M. Pancake.
