Cy-Fair drywall installer accuses general contractor of contract breach
A Cy-Fair drywall installer is suing after, it says, a general contractor failed to fully pay for the work it performed on a project in Houston.
Applied Finish Systems, of Cy-Fair, filed a lawsuit on Sept. 15 in Harris County District Court against Moorhouse Construction, and others, citing breach of subcontract agreement, breach of fiduciary duty, breach of fiduciary trust and violations of the Prompt Pay Act.
Applied Finish says that on Aug. 20, 2004, Moorhouse Construction agreed to pay it $704,000 to install drywall at the Durkee/Northline Relief School. According to the brief, Moorhouse still owes Applied over $136,000 for the work it performed on the project.
Applied Finish is seeking actual damages, attorneys’ fees and court costs. It is being represented in the case by Houston attorney W. Jason Walker.
