WINFIELD – A Scott Depot woman alleges a Hurricane company failed to construct her house in a workmanlike manner, causing water intrusion and other issues.
Catherine Glencoe filed a complaint in Putnam Circuit Court against Steorts Homebuilders LLC, Jason Steorts and G. Michael Steorts alleging negligence, fraud and other counts.
The suit states that the plaintiff purchased a home on Tyler Way, Scott Depot on May 4, 2011, that was constructed by the defendants in 2008. The plaintiff alleges she contacted the defendants in January 2018 regarding cracks in the dining room wall and was told by the defendants they were cosmetic in nature. She alleges in May 2018 during a storm, water was found on that wall and damaged artwork. She alleges she has also found other builder errors in other areas of the house, and inspections determined the house has inadequate support beams, lack of flashing, improperly installed siding and lack of a moisture barrier.
The plaintiff is seeking all reasonable sums due, attorney fees and court costs. The plaintiff is represented by Roger A. Decanio and Marvin W. Masters of The Masters Law firm LC in Charleston.
The case has been assigned to Judge Joseph Reeder.
