DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Builder GL Homes — operating as GL Building Corp. — and several related companies are facing a lawsuit in Palm Beach County Circuit Court filed by one of the first homeowners in the community of Seven Bridges.

The new home was sold for just under $1M to buyers from Cold Spring Harbor, NY in March of 2015.

The suit alleges that GL Building Corp acknowledged the issues but did not fix problems, including:

“Mold growth discovered on wood trusses and other wood members.”

“Mold that was treated/encapsulated bleeding through encapsulate paint trusses.”

“Ductwork is not installed properly, including improper placement and strapping and improper boot connections.”

“HVAC systems are oversized.”

“HVAC load calculations were not performed properly.”

“Excessive cracked stucco.”

“Stucco application does not meet required stucco thickness of 5/8 inches exclusive of the surface texture in violation of ASTM 926 Table 4, ASTM C1063 and ASTM C926-11a.”

“Failure to install weep screed in all locations where required.”

“Failure to install building wrap in all locations where required.”

“No waterproof flashing was installed in window openings and sliding glass door openings in violation of Chapter 7 of the Florida Building Code.”

“Unsealed portions of window assemblies and sliding glass door assemblies that allow moisture to penetrate the building envelope and wet the building materials int he wall cavities below the windows, creating an environment conducive to mold growth.”

The suit was filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court on July 3rd. There was no immediate response filed by GL, its related companies, or other companies named in the lawsuit.

Lawsuits are an allegation, not a statement of fact.
