Time limit halts home improvement lawsuit

Law of the Land

Between 2000 and 2002, homeowner Julie Hartigan hired Jeffrey Robinson, a contractor, to replace her home’s roof and siding, and do several other home improvements and repairs. In 2001, Hartigan complained that the work was faulty, that her roof was leaking, insulation was improperly installed and several other problems with Robinson’s work had caused water damage to her home.

The same year, Robinson made efforts to correct some of the problems about which Hartigan had complained. In 2003, Hartigan again complained about similar problems with Robinson’s workmanship, and Robinson again made some repair efforts.
