Edie Laquer is not happy about a lacquer-like coating she had installed in her luxury condo.

The commercial broker-turned-investor filed a lawsuit against Glass-On Solutions and its CEO, David Langley, alleging fraud, negligence, breach of warranty and other counts. The suit alleges that the “liquid glass” protectant damaged floors, marble countertops, walls and other surfaces in her condo at the St. Regis Bal Harbour, 9703 Collins Avenue.

Laquer hired Glass-On in the fall of 2016 to install the liquid glass, relying on Langley’s representations that the products were safe and superior and that the work was under warranty, according to the lawsuit.

What instead happened, Laquer alleges, is that the company’s products and services “resulted in a dangerous and unsafe condition, with the ongoing risk of personal injury, by creating a highly slippery surface.”

Terrace floors in her two units are now peeling, marble countertops are bubbling, a fireplace screen and TV were ruined, among other surfaces in her home, according to the suit. Glass-On and Langley have “failed, refused or been unable to fix the issues and defects with their products and services,” the lawsuit claims.

Laquer and Langley could not be reached for comment. Laquer is seeking more than $25,000 in damages, not including additional interest or costs.

Property records show the former broker paid $6.75 million for units 500 and 502 in 2013.

It’s not the first time Laquer files a lawsuit. In 2015, she settled with Miami Worldcenter Associates over a stake in the mixed-use development that she claimed was promised to her.
