Actor Peter Falk is suing a construction company for allegedly failing to complete work on his California property.
The Columbo star and his wife Shera hired Handy Andy Services to carry out refurbishment on their beachside home in Malibu, Los Angeles.
But according to a lawsuit obtained by TMZ.com, the Falks claim the firm didn't pack the soil properly, didn't apply the correct paint, failed to re-install fire sprinklers, and didn't waterproof the house.
Falk is suing for unspecified damages, but a representative for Handy Andy Services has slammed the allegations, insisting the actor still owes the company money for the work carried out.
A spokesperson tells the website, "This is slanderous to our company's name... they still owe us $120,000. Falk's wife fired us after we refused to do electrical work outside in the rain."
