    He'll just change his company name and start up another shady business until that one gets outted like this one and on and on it will go.

    I have to wonder, this guy trespassed onto someone elses' property, did damage and left.

    Why was he not arrested?

    Six String has already commented on this (and I agree with them 100%)...and just to reinforce their comments, why was the Better Business Bureau created in 1912 then?

    The past is a lot more sinister than some naive people will admit to...

    --- I think that we both remember 'back in the day' stories, but as I recall we had crooks back then too. We just didn't have the media coverage that we have now. Regardless of whether then or now, any honest company owner would make this good without question. We like to think of the past in romantic terms, but does anyone remember polio, measle epidemics, bomb shelters, the cold war, and cars that wore out at 36,000 miles? True, it was a more innocent time, but we had problems then too. The world wasn't like "Leave it to Beaver" with Ward and June or "Ozzie and Harriet". That was not the reality then either, I'm afraid.

    Why doesn't the Sec. of State's office get involved with the help of the state's attorney general? Find this guy (and others like him) and force him to make restitution or go to jail for a year or so.

    The guy is out of business broke and probably bankrupt. Dont think the insurance company is going to be able to collect anything. They will probably just write it off and forget it. Will cost them a lot to try to recover and then they wont ever collect from him. Not sure why the insurance company would even pay for a new roof. If they got a new roof for 1,000 they actually gained more than they lost on the deal. Love my roof resingled for that.

    Wow, that's ridiculous.

    holy-shnikes mom of 4 I didn't realize roofs are that expensive now.

    68_dodge_polara,

    If you price shingles at today's price they have tripled over the last 6 years. Shingles are a petroleum based product. When gas increases, shingles increase. The only difference is, when gas prices go down the shingle prices don't. They just continue to rise.

    I don't understand how the cost to reshingle the roof was 11,000? We had our home done 3 years ago with 30 year architectural shingles for 4,000.

    Even mentioning the storm damage angle though shows how dishonest this character is. If anyone suggests you should do this realise this is insurance fraud and you could spend more time in prison than any one commenting a white collar crime stealing millions. It's just the way it is.

    I won't mention any specifics b/c of legalities, but looks like in late October, he formed a new company. Secretary of State filings are public record. Just sayin'

  • Jammer512 Jan 4, 2013

    Sounds like a scam artist to me

  • LuvLivingInCary Jan 3, 2013

    that's the best way out of this. let the insurance company go ahead and fix the roof. they have much more experienced lawyers that will then go after them for the money.

  • Fuquay Resident Jan 3, 2013

    Sue the shingles off him
