WINFIELD — A Hurricane couple is suing a construction company alleging that the flooring in the home was improperly installed and never fixed.
Buddy and Kristi Whitley filed a complaint in Putnam Circuit Court against Design Development Inc. alleging negligent construction and unfair and deceptive acts and practices.
The suit states that the plaintiffs purchased a townhome at on Regent Street in Hurricane on Aug. 31, 2017, from the defendant. The plaintiffs allege they noticed shortly after moving in that the upstairs flooring made dinging and grinding noises when walked upon and discovered in 2018 that the flooring had been improperly installed.
After complaining to the defendant's owners, contractors were sent to look into the issue and the contractors promised the plaintiffs a follow-up about the price to fix the flooring. The contractors allegedly never returned and the defendant allegedly has refused to fix the defect.
The plaintiffs are seeking all reasonable sums due, attorney fees and court costs. The plaintiff is represented by Kenneth E. Webb Jr. of Bowles Rice LLP in Charleston.
The case has been assigned to Judge Phillip Stowers.
