TOPEKA, KS/January 10, 2018 (STL.News) – A Lawrence contractor has been temporarily prohibited from doing roofing business in Kansas while a state lawsuit alleging violations of consumer protection laws is pending, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said today.
New Era Roofing & Restoration, LLC, formerly d/b/a New Era Roofing, LLC, Lawrence, is temporarily banned from doing business in Kansas. Jefferson County District Judge Gary L. Nafziger entered a temporary restraining order on Friday prohibiting New Era Roofing from acting as a roofing contractor in the state. The order was served on the defendant yesterday.
The lawsuit alleges the defendant contracted and received payment from a Kansas consumer for roofing services that were never performed. The defendant also failed to maintain its registration as a roofing contractor as required by the Kansas Roofing Registration Act. The case is in Jefferson County District Court, No. 2018-CV-000002. A copy of the attorney general’s lawsuit and temporary restraining order are available at http://bit.ly/2mmSZvp.
Schmidt reminded consumers to make sure roofing contractors are properly registered 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 at www.InYourCornerKansas.org to confirm that the roofer’s registration is in good standing.
