HUNTINGTON -- A Huntington woman is suing Alternative Building Concepts for failing to repair the floors in the basement.

In 2008, Tamara S. Nimmo contacted the defendant because she was having issues with the basement floor of her residence dropping and was seeking a remedy, according to a complaint filed July 21 in Cabell Circuit Court.

Nimmo claims Alternative Building Concepts came to her home to performed an inspection and proposed the installation of AB Chance Helical Piers to the foundation of the home.

The defendant and Nimmo entered into a contract for the defendant to perform the work on Nimmo's home, according to the suit.

Nimmo claims the contract was subsequently amended to include replacement of a driveway drain to prevent water from backing up and entering her home.

On July 31, 2009, and on Aug. 10, 2009, the Huntington-Barboursville area experienced significant rainfall and the driveway drain did not perform as anticipated and allowed water to collect on the driveway and back up into Nimmo's home, causing damage, according to the suit.

Nimmo claims the defendant was negligent in designing and installing the driveway drain in her home.

The defendant also breached its contract with Nimmo for the flooding of her home, according to the suit.

Nimmo is seeking compensatory damages. She is being represented by Robert J. Sweeney Jr.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge F. Jane Hustead.
