    Jennifer Aniston is being sued by flooring contractors who say they were not paid after laying the cement for a deck and stairs at the star's Bel Air residence.

    According to court papers, the We're the Millers actress owes them $43,710.

    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 lawsuit, J.R. Darnall Associates, Inc. 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. According to the suit, the contractors redid the deck several times, and were paid for each, except for the fourth change, which involved creating a 2,000-square-foot deck.

    The contractors say they were told the deck must be poured by March 22 because Aniston wanted it for a party on March 24. Subsequently, they were told there was a water leak on the deck and that it had been demolished.

    J.R. Darnall Associates, Inc. says it was not given an opportunity to correct the problem prior it to being torn down and that all their communication with the client has been refused.

    Aniston's rep tells E! News, "We are not aware of any lawsuit. We have only heard of this through the media."
