MOUNDSVILLE – A Moundsville woman alleges a Pennsylvania business failed to complete the construction of an addition to her home.

Donna Gossett filed a complaint in Marshall Circuit Court against Howard Home Improvement alleging negligence and other counts.

The suit states that the plaintiff contracted the defendant to build a room addition to her home and on July 21, 2017, gave the defendant a cashier's check in the amount of $17,200. The plaintiff alleges she then paid the defendant a personal check on Oct. 3, 2017, for $5,000. 

The plaintiff alleges both of the checks were cashed and the defendant began work in September 2017, but did not finish. She alleges the defendant's improper and negligent workmanship allowed leaking in the addition, causing mold to develop and ruin the drywall. She alleges the deficient work has not been corrected and the addition has not been completed.

The plaintiff is seeking all reasonable sums due, attorney fees and court costs. The plaintiff is represented by Adam E. Barney of Berry, Kessler, Crutchfield, Taylor & Gordon in Moundsville.

The case has been assigned to Judge David W. Hummel Jr.
