GALVESTON – A Galveston woman is suing a Galveston County company after a window installation allegedly damaged her home.
Joan Allen filed a complaint on Jan. 11 in the Galveston County District Court against Gulf Coast Window and Energy Products Inc., doing business as Gulf Coast Windows, alleging breach of warranties and false, misleading and deceptive actions.
According to the complaint, Allen spoke to a sales consultant from Gulf Coast Windows after deciding to replace her windows. The representative allegedly advised her about types of windows and told her which were suitable for her specific needs. Following the installation, the suit says, the windows began to have problems, such as leaking from an allegedly improper installation. When the company came out to repair the windows, as per the product warranty, the suit claims, Allen was told that the windows appeared fine. Further inspection determined that the windows needed to be replaced, and Allen was advised that new ones had been ordered, the complaint states.
As a result of the company's actions and failure to perform appropriate actions, Allen's home suffered damages from water and mold, which purportedly rendered the house not livable, the complaint states..
Allen seeks damages of more than $100,000 for actual damages to her home, mental anguish and attorneys' fees. She is represented by Kenneth D. McConnico of the Law Office of Kenneth D. McConnico in Houston.
