Two home repair companies have to pay $50,000 each for violating state consumer laws.
In North Carolina, consumers have the right to cancel most contracts from door-to-door sales or in-home solicitations within three days of signing the agreement.
In 2008, Attorney General Roy Cooper's office filed lawsuits against the Window Pros, a replacement window company in Statesville, and H.A.R.D. Top Asphalt Maintenance, a paving contractor in Pender County, for violating that law. Last week, Wake County Superior Court Judge Michael R. Morgan signed permanent injunctions against both companies.
