HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Two central Pennsylvania home improvement companies have been ordered to pay a total of $186,000 in fines, restitution and legal costs.
Attorney General Kathleen Kane’s office had filed lawsuits against the companies, which specialized in asphalt paving services.
Daniel Fry, who did business as Fry Asphalt in York, was ordered to pay roughly $75,590, including $23,760 in restitution.
Authorities said Fry was paid for driveway work he never completed, and in some cases his work was so poor that customers had to hire a second contractor to correct his mistakes.
Peter Lazrovitch, William Lazrovitch, and Kelly Waters Lazrovitch, who did business as All County Asphalt and Seal Coating and Lazro and Sons General Construction in Lancaster County, were ordered to pay approximately $104,288, including $13,288 in restitution.
Prosecutors said the three failed to honor written guarantees, failed to perform services after accepting deposits from consumers, and failed to perform services in a workmanlike manner. They also failed to register their home improvement business with the state.
All defendants are no longer permitted to perform paving for Pennsylvania consumers.
