It looks like several roofing companies in the state of Kansas have been banned from doing work in the state. They were in violation of the Kansas Consumer Protection Act and Kansas Roofing Registration Act.

Quote:
Three roofing contractors have been prohibited from doing business in Kansas by temporary court orders pending the outcome of lawsuits filed against the companies in October for violating the Kansas Consumer Protection Act and Kansas Roofing Registration Act.

The companies that are temporarily barred are:

Sonny Peterson, dba S&J Carpentry/Roofing, Nortonville. Jefferson County District Judge Gary L. Nafziger yesterday entered a temporary restraining order prohibiting Peterson from acting as a roofing contractor in the state. Schmidt filed a lawsuit alleging the defendant conducted door-to-door sales of roofing services to multiple consumers in Jefferson County. In all cases, the defendant failed to provide the consumers with notice of their three-day right to cancel and cashed checks before the required five-day waiting period. In some instances, consumers paid the defendant for work that never was performed. The defendant also failed to register as required by the Kansas Roofing Registration Act. 

Apex Contracting and Roofing, LLC and Apex CR&R LLC, Raymore, MO, and its owner Jason Stewart. Shawnee County District Court Judge Larry D. Hendricks entered a temporary restraining order on November 23 prohibiting Stewart and his companies from acting as a roofing contractor in the state. Schmidt filed a lawsuit against Stewart and his companies alleging he contracted to perform two roofing jobs in Johnson County, received payment for them, and never did the work. Additionally, the company is not registered with the attorney general’s office as a roofing contractor in the State of Kansas as required by the Kansas Roofing Registration Act.

Frank “Joe” R. Corder, dba FRC Construction, Pittsburg. Bourbon County District Court Judge Mark A. Ward entered a temporary restraining order on November 14 prohibiting Corder from acting as a roofing contractor in the state. Schmidt filed a lawsuit alleging the defendant contracted to perform roofing jobs in Bourbon and Crawford counties, received payment for them and never did the work. The defendant also failed to register as required by the Kansas Roofing Registration Act.

In each case, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt is seeking restitution to consumers who did business with these unregistered companies as well as penalties for doing business without registering and violating the Kansas Consumer Protection Act.

Consumers are reminded to make sure roofing contractors are properly registered with the attorney general’s office, as required by law, before signing any contract or having any work done. Consumers should request a copy of their roofer’s registration certificate and then should check the attorney general’s consumer protection website to confirm that the registration remains active.

I don't see how these companies expect to get away with this kind of thing. I guess they think that people will not check on them and they will just go ahead with the work. When you are lying to people you won't get very far.

These businesses got exactly what was coming to them. There are so many companies now trying to take shortcuts and skirt around certain laws. In the end, if you would have done it right, you would have been better off.

It seems like this is going on all over the country. I have read articles about this type of behavior in about four other states. The businesses get caught all the time and end up being barred from doing business in the state.
