A Texas flooring company recently sued one of its clients, alleging that the client refused to pay for services and materials.
According to the Southeast Texas Record, Gulf Coast Flooring and Services filed the lawsuit May 22 against Shawn LePorte and Hemarani Sivarajan, citing both the Texas Theft Liability Act and Consumer Protection Act.
In the lawsuit, Gulf Coast Flooring and Services claimed it entered a formal agreement with LePorte to supply labor, equipment and materials for a flooring project in Texas City’s Camino Court, the Southeast Texas Record reported.
While the plaintiff completed its side of the agreement, LePore failed to pay the $5,709.73 expense of the flooring project.
According to its website, Gulf Coast Flooring and Services provides flooring installations with materials such as carpet, ceramic, porcelain and more.
One flooring material that has gained in popularity is terrazzo, which is composed of chips of marble, quartz, granite or glass embedded in cement or epoxy. Terrazzo comes in a wide range of colors and styles, and boasts both low maintenance requirements and a high resistance to foot traffic.
The Southeast Texas Record reports that Gulf Coast Flooring is seeking “an order establishing its lien on the property, foreclosure on the lien, the $5,709.73 payment, attorneys fees, interest and court costs” in the lawsuit.
