Additional Notes

Complaint: I really hate to write a negative review but I need to share my recent experience with Showalter Roofing and their terrible business practices in order to warn others of their potential illegal business schemes, including trespassing *** potentially entering my home without my permission. I cannot believe this business has such positive reviews after my literally, terrifying experience. Showalter Roofing (**** ******* gave me an estimate to replace a skylight in June of this year. After receiving estimates from other companies and ensuring that I received the best offer from Showalter Roofing, I replied to an email from **** ****** indicating that I would like to use their services and to let me know what the next step in the process was in order have them replace the skylight as quoted. This was in October of this year. After waiting a month (late November), I realized I had never heard back from Showalter Roofing either via email reply or phone call which to me indicated that they must not want the business. Therefore, I sought quotes from other local companies and was about sign a contract with another roofer to replace the skylight. On 11/18/14 I received a voicemail from Showalter Roofing indicating my special order skylight had arrived and to please call them to schedule the installation. As you can imagine I was quite taken aback given that I had not heard from this company for a month and I had never signed a contract to complete services. Regardless, I was going to return their call the next day to straighten out the situation. However, the following day, 11/19/14, I came home from work and walked upstairs to my bedroom, the room that had the skylight that needed to be replaced. As I walked in, I noticed a mess all over the ground and on my custom furniture, and then noticed a newly installed skylight. This is the skylight that I never order, never signed for and was never scheduled to be installed. I called the police and there is an outstanding report for the trespassers ** my roof without my knowledge. Additionally, the police are very concerned that someone may have entered my home. I never knew of a company that just installs something that is only quoted. The worst part is that ********* Roofing was contacted by the police, apologized to the police, and told the police that we needed to contact the Chief Operating Office (** ******) to have this figured it out because evidently this is not the first time Showalter Roofing has done this (creepy). My husband has been trying to call ** all day but has been told different stories as to his whereabouts (e.g., sick, offsite at a company meeting, etc). He has now been speaking with Jill for residential projects, however she has yet to been able to help to remedy the situation. No one, including **** ****** who was directly contacted by the ********** police, has attempted to contact me to explain the situation.

Desired Settlement: At this point I would agree to non-payment for services and product, clean up of my home in the inside including caulking of the skylight, etc, and a 3 year 100% coverage warranty for both installation and product.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2014/11/24) */ Contact Name and Title: ** ******, COO Contact Phone: XXX-XXX-XXXX Contact Email: ******** There are numerous inaccuracies within the complaint. It is our understanding the individual who filed the complaint will be removing it from the BBB records.
