Construction Supplier and Subcontractor Collections

PDH represents numerous companies throughout the state of Texas who supply materials to, or who serve as subcontractors for, residential, commercial and industrial construction projects.  We thoroughly understand the prerequisites that must be followed to properly perfect liens and/or payment bond claims.  We also routinely handle litigation relating to such liens and other construction collection matters.

Material suppliers and subcontractors providing material and/or labor to construction projects located in Texas face some of the most complicated mechanic’s lien laws found anywhere in the United States.  They must comply with technical statutory requirements in order to protect their rights against private property owners or, in the case of bonded public or private projects, sureties.

While there are multiple means that PDH deploys for construction collections, including actions for sworn account and breach of contract, and actions under the Construction Trust Fund Act and the Texas Property Code and its prompt payment statutes, the most important means to collect in the state of Texas is through proper compliance of the  statutory requirements necessary for suppliers and subcontractors to assert a mechanic’s lien on a privately owned project in Texas.
