Woman Files Lawsuit, Contractor Fails to Remodel House

GALVESTON – Catherine Gardiner has filed a lawsuit.  Complaining a local contractor took her money.  Then failed to work on her Brenham home.

Her charges are.  Friendswood resident Phil Messarra, doing business as Master Craftsmen, “engaged in false, misleading or deceptive acts or practices.” Court papers filed Aug. 9 in Galveston County Court at Law No. 2 say.

Gardiner hired the defendant to undertake a remodeling job.  His representations were “that he had the skill, knowledge, experience, expertise, financial wherewithal, staff and personnel” for the subject project.

The suit, however, claims.  The remodeling contractor allowed said project to drag on “for over seven months.  This is well past the promised time of completion.”

It adds that he spent funds and time allotted to the plaintiff’s order on other work.

The plaintiff states she wrote him a demand letter dated June 3.  But the “issues and deficiencies raised in that correspondence remained after six weeks following the letter.  They still remain to this day.”

“The defendant has had more than enough time to address and remedy these serious matters,” the original petition says.

“Unfortunately, the defendant has wholly failed to do so.”

“Numerous” breaches prompted Gardiner to terminate Messarra.

She insists the defendant’s supposed actions led to the loss of property value.

A jury trial is requested.

Attorney Douglas A. McAninch with Douglas A. McAninch P.C. in Friendswood is representing the plaintiff, and Galveston County Court at Law No. 2 Judge Barbara Roberts is presiding over the case.

Cause No. 68,040
