A Cautionary Contractor Tale
When Sonya Speer hired an independent contractor to do some backyard landscaping work and drainage repairs at her Trippanyville Road home in the town of Norfolk, she thought by getting a signed contract she wouldn't have any problems.
She said her backyard a mess, her savings account is depleted and only about one-eighth of the work is done.
"It's heartbreaking. I have a hard time understanding that somebody could even do this to somebody," she said.
