GALVESTON — Galveston Island master community planners are suing a window and door manufacturer, alleging the components failed to stand up to weather conditions as required.
American Villas LLC, Donald Sinclair, Allen Howard, GMC Land Investments LLC and Robert Pierce filed a complaint April 1 in Galveston County District Court against Grand Openings Inc., alleging deceptive trade practices, common law fraud, breach of contract and breach of warranty.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs entered into a purchase order with Grand Openings for the purchase of windows and doors to be installed in new homes in a master planned community on East Seaside Drive in Galveston. The suit says the contract required the defendant to furnish exterior doors and windows that were able to withstand the maritime weather of the area.
The plaintiffs allege Grand Openings supplied the products but the windows and doors failed at a rate of 70%, resulting in damages to the plaintiffs' property.
The plaintiffs seek monetary relief of more than $1 million, attorney fees, court costs and other relief deemed fit. The plaintiff is represented by attorneys Cris A. Rasco of Rasco Law Firm in Texas City ,and by Darrell Appfel and D. Blake Appfel of Appfel Legal PLLC in Galveston
