    A new lawsuit involving crumbling concrete named former Stafford Springs concrete company J.J. Mottes as a co-defendant.

    This summer an exclusive NBC Connecticut Troubleshooters investigation shared the story of Marya Mahoney.

    Her Ellington garage tested positive for pyrrhotite, a naturally occurring mineral experts say causes concrete to crack.

    The concrete was poured by J.J. Mottes in 2013, making it perhaps the most recent project known to have crumbling concrete.

    A spokesman for J.J. Mottes has told us the company is out of business, and it insists its concrete is not to blame, but rather poor workmanship by installers.
