Richard Scott Shaffer and Geraldine M. Shaffer v. Patrick E. Gallagher and CTL Engineering of West Virginia
PA-Wesley W. Metheny; J-Russell M. Clawges Jr.
* Prior to purchasing a residence on Anderson Drive in Morgantown, Richard and Geraldine Shaffer contracted with Patrick Gallagher and CTL Engineering for a structural home inspection. Gallagher indicated the house was free of structural defects. Based on that information, the Shaffers completed the purchase of the dwelling. In the fall of 2006, the Shaffers wanted to remove the drivit coating and replace it with cut stone. At that time, they were made aware of numerous long-term structural defects in regard to the siding, stud walls, foundation and supporting structure. The Shaffers had to replace the structural deficiencies at a cost of $50,000. They seek judgment against Gallagher and CTL Engineering for injuries and damages sustained, pre- and post-judgment interest, costs and attorney fees.
