Jennifer Aniston was sued by flooring contractors who claim they were not paid by the actress after they completed work on her newly renovated Bel-Air home.

According to E! News, J.R. Darnall Associates, Inc. is claiming the company was not paid after laying the cement for a deck and stairs at the star's house. Aniston owes the company $43,710, court documents reveal.

J.R. Darnall Associates, Inc. is suing Aniston, as well as other contractors, for breach of contract, breach of oral contract and for other causes of action in their lawsuit filed Aug. 13 in Los Angeles Superior Court. In the suit, the company claims it supplied labor as well as materials for cabinetry and the finishing of a concrete floor in the lower level of Aniston's home, which she shares with fiance Justin Theroux. According to documents, the contractors redid the deck several times, and were paid for each, except for the fourth go-around, which involved creating a 2,000-square-foot deck.

In the suit, J.R. Darnall Associates, Inc., explains that they were told the deck must be completed by March 22 because Aniston wanted to use it for a party on March 24. Following the soiree, they were informed that there was a water leak on the construction and that it had been demolished. But instead of allowing them to fix the problem before leveling the deck, TMZ reports that the contractors are claiming Aniston cut off all communication.
