The Steel Gardens Townhome Owners’ Association has sued its builders, complaining that the exteriors of their nearly 10-year-old NoDa homes weren’t built or maintained properly.
The lawsuit, filed last month, alleges that there are “defects and deficiencies in the workmanship and material used” and points to problems with the roofs, siding and brick veneer. The townhome association is responsible for upkeep of those areas.
The suit claims that Bonterra Builders, which constructed the townhomes, is responsible for defects including water staining and damage on the roof and brick, improperly installed siding and numerous other issues.
The townhomes were built in 2007 and 2008. Since then, Steel Gardens has expanded in other phases, including homes built in 2013 and 2014.
Bonterra Builders did not respond to phone calls or emails seeking comment. The company has not formally responded to the complaint in court.
Bonterra has built more than 30 communities in the Charlotte area. The Agenda did not find any legal actions taken against the company for other communities in Mecklenburg County.
