TOPEKA, Kan. — Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt is seeking fines against 10 roofing contractors after they were found in violation of consumer protection laws.

According to a release from the attorney general's office, in the period ending June 30, Schmidt entered into consent judgments with the roofers for violations of the Kansas Roofing Registration Act (KRRA). The settlements require the contractors to pay civil penalties for KRRA violations. They also require the contractors to comply with the KRRA when providing roofing services in the future. The 10 roofing contractors fined are:

  • KCRS LLC, and KCRS Restoration Contractors, LLC, d/b/a Kansas City Roofing Service
  • Lionheart Contracting LLC
  • Garst Construction LLC
  • New Era Innovations LLC
  • Absolute Roofseal LLC
  • Weaver Construction Services LLC
  • Carlos Marquez d/b/a Marquez Construction
  • Jose L. Nunez-Vazquez
  • Hometown Roofing LLC
  • Winterstone LLC

In each case, Schmidt alleged the defendants or defendants’ subcontractors engaged in advertising, soliciting or performing roofing contractor services in Kansas without registering with the attorney general’s office as required by the KRRA or violating other provisions of the Kansas Roofing Registration Act.

Copies of the consent judgments are available here.
