Couple accuse home builder of shoddy workmanship

By Robert Hadley | Apr 21, 2016

PRINCETON – A Mercer County couple's lawsuit against a home builder alleges that construction of a new home on recently purchased property became a money pit.

James M. Boyd Sr. and Debra C. Boyd filed a lawsuit April 8 in Mercer Circuit Court against Keesling Construction Co., alleging breach of warranty.


According to the complaint, the Boyds hired Keesling Construction to build a home on property they own in a subdivision outside of Princeton. Once the couple moved into the home in July 2009, the suit says, they discovered numerous defects allegedly caused by improperly prepared ground and settling. The damage includes a broken sidewalk, front steps and driveway retaining wall; cracked interior and exterior walls; holes in the driveway; water leakage; mold infestation; and other defects.

The plaintiffs seek a jury trial and compensatory damages in an amount to be proven at trial. They are represented by attorney William H. Sanders III of Sanders, Austin & Flanigan in Princeton.
