Florida contractor accused of taking money, not finishing jobs

While some are able to handle upgrades on their own, it is not uncommon to end up hiring a contractor to do the work. Most homeowners assume that the individual they hire to assist with this will complete the work in a timely fashion and in a manner that measures up to a certain quality standard. Unfortunately this is not always how things go and homeowners may be left with work that leaves much to be desired or even without certain tasks being completed.
