CHARLESTON — West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey has reached a settlement with a roofing company and its owners to resolve allegations that the business misled consumers and received money for work that was never completed.
The settlement prohibits Great Finishes LLC, along with its owners, David Brinegar and Stacy Brinegar, from any future contracting work. It also imposes a $5,000 civil penalty and ensures refunds for the remaining victims.
“We do not tolerate bad actors here,” Morrisey said. “If someone breaks the law or takes advantage of our citizens, we make sure justice is served.”
Morrisey's lawsuit alleged Great Finishes never returned to complete five roofing jobs for which it received at least $22,964.80 in down payments and owed approximately $15,000 for work the company did not complete.
Additionally, the suit alleged Great Finishes failed to provide proper notice of a three-day cancellation notice or its contractor’s license number within contracts, failed to complete work by the date promised and conducted business in a deceptive and fraudulent manner.
Morrisey's investigation led to a criminal indictment and Stacy Brinegar’s guilty plea to felony obtaining by false pretenses. The criminal case was handled by the Kanawha County Prosecutor’s Office.
