NEWS RELEASE ISSUED BY THE OFFICE OF KANSAS ATTORNEY GENERAL DEREK SCHMIDT

AG Schmidt: 700 roofers registered, check the directory before having work done

TOPEKA – (March 31, 2014) – As the spring storm season approaches, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt today reminded Kansans to make sure roofers are complying with a new Kansas law requiring them to register with the Attorney General’s Office.

“As of today, 700 roofers have registered with our office and may lawfully provide roofing services in Kansas,” Schmidt said. “As storm season begins across our state, it’s important for homeowners to make sure their roofer has registered before signing any contract, paying any money or having any work done.”

Before hiring a roofer, consumers should ask for a copy of the roofer’s registration certificate from the attorney general’s office and then go online to verify that the roofer is in fact listed in the attorney general’s online directory. The requirement to register with the attorney general’s office is in addition to any other local requirements that may be imposed by cities or counties.

The online directory is available at www.InYourCornerKansas.org.

The Kansas Roofing Contractor Registration Act 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. It is designed to ensure that legitimate roofing contractors are complying with state requirements, such as carrying appropriate insurance, and to help prevent fly-by-night operators from taking advantage of Kansas consumers.

Any Kansans who have problems with roofing contractors, particularly after suffering storm damage, may file a request for the attorney general’s Consumer Protection Division to investigate at (800) 432-2310 or www.InYourCornerKansas.org. The attorney general requests that Kansans report any unregistered person or company attempting to sell roofing services.
