BEAUMONT – Two Orange County homeowners allege a tile installation by a Port Neches business damaged their home.
Glenn and Marianna Theriot filed a complaint on Sept. 8 in the Jefferson County District Court against Chris Johnson and Pamela Johnson, doing business as Summer's Abbey Flooring Center & Mattress Gallery alleging that they violated the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs purchased installation services and tile, bonding, caulk and grout for their home from the defendants in October 2016. The suit states the work was completed the following month, but the plaintiffs allege that the grout and mortar were not in conformity with their expectations.
The suit states the plaintiffs contacted the defendant to remedy the issue, and the defendant used a product that caused the grout to change color and discolor almost all metal surfaces in the home.
The plaintiffs hold Chris Johnson and Pamela Johnson, doing business as Summer's Abbey Flooring Center & Mattress Gallery, responsible because the defendants allegedly misrepresented that the goods and services purchased were of a particular standard and quality.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek monetary relief of more than $200,000 but less than $1 million and all other relief to which they are entitled. They are represented by Paul F. Chip and Thomas J. "Tom" Landry of The Ferguson Law Firm LLP in Beaumont.
