HOUSTON – A Houston couple has filed a breach of contract lawsuit against a pair of contractors they hired to fix their Hurricane Harvey-damaged home.

John and Julie Stewart’s suit asserts that George Perez, doing business as Interior Solution Service, and Edward Gonzales, DBA Nehemiah’s Rebuilders, bear responsibility in failing to repair the aforementioned damage.

The Stewarts contracted with Gonzales who, in turn, hired Perez as a painting subcontractor.

Recent court papers claim the parties did not enter a written contract. The plaintiffs reportedly paid Gonzales though Perez’s work was not to their liking, the original petition says.

According to the Stewarts, Perez and his wife went to their house to demand more funds.

A mechanic’s and materialman’s lien was purportedly placed on the residence, to which the suit is trying to remove from the Stewarts’ title.

The complainants seek unspecified monetary damages.

They are representing by Thomas Joseph Asma of Houston.
