WINFIELD — Former Putnam County property owners are suing a Point Pleasant contractor, alleging breach of contract and breach of duty.
Eric Clark and Tracey Clark filed a complaint in Putnam Circuit Court against AB Contracting Inc., alleging failure to perform work in a good and workmanlike manner.
According to the complaint, on Feb. 22, 2010, the Clarks contracted AB Contracting for the construction of a pool and retaining wall at their residence at 357 Cam Drive, Scott Depot. In 2017, the suit says, they decided to sell their home.
Subsequently, the current owner allegedly discovered defects in the retaining wall and the main beam and girders of the home. The plaintiffs allege AB Contracting failed to connect a major drainage pipe to the drainage system, which caused the area adjacent to the retaining wall to become saturated and reduce the bearing capacity of the soil, resulting in structural movement to the wall.
The Clarks seek trial by jury, all damages, costs, attorney fees and all other appropriate relief. They are represented by attorney James C. Stebbins of Lewis Glasser PLLC in Charleston.
