Stucco company seeks $22K from church project

John Suayan, Galveston Bureau May 9, 2011, 3:34pm

GALVESTON - Precise Stucco Solutions LLC has filed suit against Greater New Hope Missionary Baptist Church in Dickinson in an effort to recover around $22,000 for masonry work it provided.

A lawsuit filed April 28 in Galveston County District Court says that a contractor which the church hired owes the complainant $22,394 for stucco masonry materials and labor, but failed to make payment.

According to the original petition, the defendant hired ADG Construction, LLC to serve as general contractor on a project at its property. ADG in turn brought the plaintiff on to perform the stucco portion of said project.

Precise says it provided ADG supplies and other things. The plaintiff attempted to collect the amount owed for the labor and materials, but the contractor refused to pay, the suit says.

It adds that Precise sent the required notices to both parties and filed a mechanic and material man's lien against the church.

"Upon information and belief, the defendant and/or ADG intended to defraud the plaintiff out of the balance due for labor and materials supplied and in accordance with Texas law," the suit says.

"The defendant is liable for payment of all of the sums owned the plaintiff herein."

The Cromeens Law Firm, PLLC is representing Precise, and Galveston County 122nd District Court Judge John Ellisor is presiding over the case.

Case No. 11-cv-0702
