NEWS RELEASE ISSUED BY THE KANSAS ATTORNEY GENERAL'S OFFICE

AG Schmidt: More than 500 roofers registered

TOPEKA – (January 17, 2014) – Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt today announced that more than 500 roofing contractors are now registered with his office and have received certification to operate in the State of Kansas.

“More Kansas roofing companies are becoming aware of their new legal obligation to register with our office,” Schmidt said. “As the home improvement season approaches in the spring, consumers should also be aware of this requirement and request a copy of the registration certificate from any roofer before signing any contract.”

The new Kansas Roofing Contractor Registration Act is aimed at helping consumers avoid doing business with unscrupulous or fly-by-night operators who do not comply with registration requirements. The law was passed during the 2013 legislative session and took effect July 1, 2013. The law requires every roofing contractor to obtain a registration certificate from the Kansas Attorney General in order to legally provide commercial or residential roofing services for a fee in Kansas.

Schmidt said his office is continuing to work with trade associations and local government construction permitting offices to help contractors comply with the new law. Roofing contractors who have not already registered may do so by visiting www.InYourCornerKansas.org. Consumers may also visit that website to check the registration status of a roofing contractor.
