GALVESTON – A Galveston custom home builder alleges a Santa Fe couple refuses to pay more than $200,000 they owe for Hurricane Harvey flood damage repair work and remodeling work done on their home.
Spiros Charalambous, individually and doing business as Charalambous Custom Homes & Cabinetry, filed a complaint Dec. 18 in the Galveston County District Court against William Sumbles Jr., Tracy Sumbles and Natgas Global Resources Inc. alleging breach of contract.
According to the complaint, Williams Sumbles hired Charalambous on Aug. 27, 2017, to repair damage done to his Santa Fe home caused by flooding from Hurricane Harvey. The suit states an insurance claim was issued for $156,493.78 and Charlambous claims Sumbles and his wife asked for additional upgrades and repairs that were not part of the insurance claim. They allegedly told the plaintiff they would pay for the additional costs.
Charlambous alleges in April of 2018 Sumbles "ordered him off the job" and refused to pay a balance of $209,745.97 for repair, rehab and remodel work.
Charalambous seeks monetary relief of $209,745.97, interest, a trial by jury and all other just relief. He is represented by R. Talmadge Hammock of The Hammock Law Firm LLC in Houston.
