Complaint: I've had a terrible experience with Action Roofing. Communication with them has been terrible throughout the process and has only gotten worse. This is my first time buying a home and my home inspector suggested that due to signs of leaking and other obvious signs of damage I should have a professional roofer come have a look. Action Roofing came out and gave me a quote. We arranged with the sellers to deduct the quoted price from the cost of the home. Once we purchased the home, we had Action Roofing do the work. About a week after the "repairs" were made, there was a rain storm and water came into the home - damaged the paint on the wall in our bathroom in two places (one of them quite large) and leaked through the ceiling in our kitchen below. I contacted **** ******** and he said there was no way for them to know that there was a leak. I pointed out in the home inspection (which I had provided a copy to him prior to his trip out) and I showed him what I found in the attic - where it was clear to me that water has come through. He sent someone out to seal around the pipes that stick out the top of the roof (which I was told should have been done already) and we've had several storms since and though it's less, we've still continued to get water in our home. The initial repairs cost $750, but after the rain storm, I asked the Mr. ******** what he recommends we do - he quoted me an additional $850 to properly repair the roof. I've tried several times to get him to work with me on the cost, but all he does is change the scope to lower the cost... I don't see how doing LESS than what he said is necessary will help. I've asked him to give some concession on the cost seeing as how this was their oversight, but now, Mr. ******** has completely stopped responding to my emails. I am VERY displeased with the work, lack of response, and frankly complete lack of professionalism and accountability that Action Roofing has shown in this matter. We've since had another roofing company out and they looked at what has been done and said that it would not hold up and they were not surprised that we were continuing to get water in the home. I'm likely going to have to pay another company to fix what Action Roofing was unable to fix. To make matters worse, the company that I've had out since tells me that composite roofs in San Antonio don't generally last longer than 15 years and that's the age of our roof. I'm very angry that I was NEVER told that by Action Roofing prior to having these repairs made. Action Roofing has failed to properly assess my needs, repair my roof, or respond to my emails. I've found it nearly impossible to talk to Mr. ******** over the phone.
Desired Settlement: I'd love it if Action Roofing would pay to repair the damages that have resulted from the failure to properly repair my roof. I no longer trust them to make any repairs themselves and would like to use another company to do the repairs properly.
Unfortunately, my trust in Action Roofing & Remodeling has reached a new low. When I initially spoke with Mr. ******** over the phone, he made no mention of being booked up. He said that he could make it out to inspect the roof in our timeframe (which was admittedly a small window of under 2 weeks). During my conversation with him, he never implied that he would be going only off of the home inspection report. To the contrary, on the phone and in email, he told me that he would come inspect the roof.
The whole reason I needed this done quickly was because I was in my option period and the home inspection report stated that I needed to seek the assistance of a professional licensed roofer to verify the integrity of the roof.
Mr. ******** asked me over the phone to forward him a copy of the house inspection report as it would aid him in the process. Wanting him to have every bit of information possible, I obliged. My understanding from our conversation was that the inspection report would help highlight the problem areas, but it was never said that it would be used in lieu of a physical inspection.
In the email I sent to Mr. ******** dated May 2, 2013 at 6:29PM, I attached the inspection report. I was expecting to get a response from him telling me when he would be out to inspect the roof. I sent another email on May 4, 2013 at 10:27AM. My message said:
I wanted to confirm that you received the inspection report and see if you would be available to check out our roof early in the week?
That same day at 2:12PM, I received a response from Mr. ******** that stated “Yes I will.”
I replied on May 5, 2013 at 4:09PM with “Sounds good. When should I inform the sellers that you will be out there?”
He replied the same day at 12:08PM with “Some time on Monday.”
I replied informing him that I would let the owners know.
On Monday, May 6, 2013 at 3:34pm I received the quote for repairs from Mr. ********. I presumed that he had been honest with me and actually came out to the house and inspected the roof. Trusting that he had properly inspected the roof, we negotiated with the sellers to deduct the cost of repairs from the cost of the home and once we moved in, we scheduled with Action Roofing to come out and do the repairs.
After the repairs were completed, we had water leak into our home and when I asked Mr. ******** what we needed to do to insure it didn't happen again, he recommended the additional $850 worth of work. $850 worth of work that I’m sure he would have recommended up front had he inspected the roof like he said he would. In fact, I get the feeling that he would have recommended a completely new roof had he actually done the inspection in the first place. In that event, I would have been able to provide the larger estimate to the sellers during my option period and use it to negotiate down the cost of the home. I believe that Mr. ********’s failure to follow through on the inspection has cost me in two fold. First, I could have had the excess costs of repairs or replacement of the roof deducted from the cost of the home. Second, if the roof had been properly repaired, I would not have had damage done to my sheetrock and paint when water leaked into the home during the storms that occurred after Action Roofing performed their work.
I tried to negotiate with Mr. ******** several times to remedy this issue but he stopped responding to me altogether.
I feel like Mr. ******** completely misrepresented his estimate as having been the result of a physical examination of the roof. I am dissatisfied with the work that has been done because we still got water in our home during the last rain. The minimum necessary resolution to this dispute is a full refund of the $750 that we spent on the initial service. Money that we spent believing the roof had been inspected and that it was the professional opinion of Action Roofing that no further work was necessary. I would also like for Action Roofing to pay for repairs to my sheetrock. I’m planning to re-paint the bathroom and kitchen eventually, so I’m not as worried about the paint. As for the roof repairs, I don’t feel comfortable with Action Roofing doing any more work on my home. I would prefer to use an alternative company.
Before I found out that Action Roofing had mislead me in regards to inspecting my roof, I had offered to pay $400 for the repairs that they are now offering to me for free. That was before I lost faith in their ability to repair my roof and before they stopped responding to my emails. I am not willing to accept services from a company that has mislead me and betrayed my trust.
I never refused to pay for Action Roofing to repair my roof. I only wanted them to work with me on the cost since I felt like they had overlooked something during their inspection. However, now that I know it wasn’t a mistake, but an outright betrayal of my good faith, I no longer want their service (paid or free).
I’ve had another roofing company assess our roof and they pointed out that the sealant around our pipes, applied by Action Roofing, was not properly applied. They also noted a number of other issues that should have been pointed out to us during the initial assessment that I was promised by Action Roofing.
Ultimately, the other company recommends that we either spend $2700 to properly repair the roof, which will likely last 2 more years (once repaired), or replace the entire roof now for $7700.
What Action Roofing can do is refund me the $750 I paid for services that I was misled to believe would make my roof whole. I will not be satisfied with anything less than a full reimbursement.
BBB's Final Determination: After reviewing the position of all parties, BBB determined that the business made a reasonable offer to resolve the complaint. However the consumer did not accept the offer.
