An allegedly defective coating is to blame for a lawsuit between famed real estate broker Edie Laquer and Florida-based protective coatings company Glass-On Solutions.

The Real Deal magazine reports that Laquer filed the suit for $25,000 against Glass-On CEO David Langley alleging fraud, negligence and breach of warranty regarding a coating that damaged floors, marble countertops, walls and other surfaces at Laquer’s condo.

Glass-On Solutions uses inorganic nanotechnology for its coatings, which it says protect surfaces from dirt and dust as well as stains, microbial growth and weathering.

Reports say that Laquer hired the company in 2016 to install the liquid glass product to protect the surfaces and instead, the coating “resulted in a dangerous and unsafe condition, with the ongoing risk of personal injury, by creating a highly slippery surface.”

Laquer also alleges that because of the coating, floors are peeling and countertops are bubbling. The lawsuit also claims that the company has failed or refused to fix the issues.

Neither party has commented on the case.
