Contractor Allegedly Breaches Contract, Leaving Gaping Holes in Insulation and Failing to Install Correct Drainage System.


Woman Files Lawsuit against NR Builders for Breaching Contract

Rosalind contracted NR Builders to make home improvements on two separate addresses. Both parties signed a contract. But only a month later, after the work was allegedly finished at the first address, Rosalind shares that she noticed various mistakes, which violated the contract. When the work was supposedly completed at the second address, Rosalind was forced to hire a new contractor to fix the mistakes allegedly left by NR Builders.

The first contract allegedly required the installation of new window, storm doors, a new front porch with new drainage system and awning. When Rosalind inspected the work, she claims the new porch lacked a drainage system. Without a proper drain, water puddled in the basement of the house, and the subsequent moisture caused mold.

At the location under the second contract, Rosalind reports discovering other mistakes, forcing her to hire another contractor to fix and complete the work. When the second contractor started, they allegedly identified a section of the wall with a 2” by 4” hole, exposing old blue vinyl without any insulation behind it. Meanwhile, Rosalind claims that the siding previously installed by the first contractor wasn’t attached properly and so began pulling away from the wall.

Rosalind shares that she hired NR Builders to improve her homes not further ruin them. Since this was contracted work, NR Builders broke their contracts when they failed to properly finish the work they were hired to do. KM&A supports people like Rosalind who suffered from contract breaches.
