BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A homeowner in Boca Bridges, the new G.L. Homes community still under construction on Lyons Road near “The Bridges” and “Seven Bridges,” says the ceramic tile floor throughout the first floor of home was installed so poorly that it’s “a complete and utter disaster.”

The lawsuit, filed by South Florida powerhouse law firm Berger Singerman, accuses “Carpets By Mr. Jason, Inc,” also known as “Jason’s Carpet and Tile,” of performing horrendous work. The company, based on Banks Road in Margate, did not immediately respond to a request for comment from BocaNewsNow.com.

According to the filling in Palm Beach County Circuit Court, “Carpets by Mr. Jason negligently and carelessly performed work in the home, which was substandard, defective, and below acceptable trade standards. The inferior workmanship and installation includes tiles installed with irregular surface profiles, joints between the tiles with inconsistent size, grout inconsistent in volume or color shade, slippage between adjoining tiles, and with hollow areas under tiles.”

Attorneys also wrote: “Because of Carpets by Mr. Jason’s shoddy installation and carelessness, Plaintiffs must tear up and replace their entire ceramic floor and relocate until the replacement and related repair work is completed, Plaintiffs have incurred and will incur significant out-of-pocket expenses. The major disruption in Plaintiffs’ lives could have been avoided had Carpets by Mr. Jason used quality products, properly installed the floor, and supervised its installers. Carpets by Mr. Jason should be held responsible for its negligence.”

While not named as a defendant, G.L. Homes selected Carpets by Mr. Jason as the contractor for flooring in the new home. G.L. was served with a copy of the lawsuit. The home in question was purchased in April of 2021 for $1.5M. Read the complete filing, below. The suit seeks in excess of the statutory minimum of $30,000.
