Complaint: Paid 765 for warranty I never got. Saying that they are behind is not an excuse. Your men also left a mess around the yard. Didn't pick after dumpster was removed. Stuff was brought from other jobs and dump in the dumpster when we where told nothing but roofing materials could be put in the dumpster. I don't care if you say that the roof is covered since it was put in. We need the warranty from manufacturer in hand. Do we need to take you to small claims court?? Im sick of your excuses that all I heard from the moment we hired you all. The roof was put in the beginning of June. Your excused mean nothing!!!
Desired Settlement: Get the warranty registered with the manufacturer or will sue in court. Thats all!
Warranty was registered and customer was notified

Complaint: I paid $765 for the ****** ****** Warranty which was never registered with *** and not issued to me. Because the registration was never submitted to ***, I never got the factory inspection either. I called LARich on several occasions and was promised my registration would go through and it never did. My last phone call to LARich didn't allow for a message and two trips to the office were unsuccessful.
Desired Settlement: I would like a refund of my $765.00 paid-in advance payment for the factory inspection and ****** ****** ********.
From: ***** ****** [mailto:*******************]
Thank you for your email of yesterday relative to the response from LARich. My last call to *** regarding my roof registration was on December 18, 2014 when I was told, yet again, that nothing had been sent from LARich. After speaking with a representative from *** that day, I tried to speak with either **** or ***** but I was unable to leave a message on either their office phone or ****'s cell phone. I am happy to learn that I now have a Warranty #******* with *** for my roof, most likely because of my complaint issued through the Better Business Bureau.
I will be more than happy to get what I paid for, ie. the factory inspection of my roof and the ****** ****** ******** if I am still eligible which I fear I am not. The literature from *** indicates that the contractor must register and pay for this warranty within 45 days after installation and that the homeowner should contact *** within 60 days if the permanent warranty from *** was not received. The roof installation was completed on April 24 and time went by and not hearing anything from either LARich or *** I checked the fine print from *** and called both the *** toll-free registration number and LARich on July 8. The customer service representative, ******, (who had departed the company several months later when I called again) was the first *** person with whom I spoke and she verified that no registration was ever submitted by LARich. I immediately contacted LARich and **** said that my registration and several others were being sent out by express mail. I called *** and reported this to ****** who said that the company wasn't strict about the time period for registration submittal so I took her word for it and continued to wait thinking that a "Factory Certified Master Elite" company would stand by it's word. I also noted that LARich was voted "Best Roofing Contractor for *********** ****" according to the annual business poll.
At this point I feel that ***** should uphold his company's standards and ensure that I hear from *** that a company inspector will be at my home within the next couple of weeks and that I will receive the ****** ****** ******** for which I have paid $765.00. If this is not possible, I want a bank check in the amount of said $765.00.
I drove to the LARich office on two occasions, once in March and again in April to see if I could speak directly with either ***** or ****. The office was closed and there were piles of empty plastic bags on the floor. It appeared that these bags had contained some type of snow/ice melting substance. My impression, after these two visits, was that no one was spending any time in the LARich office.
Any help I can receive from the Better Business Bureau in arbitrating this dispute will be greatly appreciated.
Sent from my iPad
I called *** this morning to verify that the warranty ******* reported to the BBB and me was,indeed, valid. I have been assured by *** that it is and I should expect to receive a roof inspection and paper work in the near future. The warranty is a direct result of your contacting LARich on my behalf and I thank you very much for your help. It is a big relief for me to have this matter resolved.

Complaint: LA RICH replaced my roof in November 2013 .Some pieces of vinyl siding got broken and post caps on the porch.I called **** ********** and he came checked the damages and said they would replace the broken siding and post caps. He said they couldn't do it until spring because of the cold weather, the siding will crack. I understood and agreed.I had recommended La RICH to my neighbor to replace his roof, which they did in the end of May 2014. **** said they would take care of siding while they were doing the roof next store.I was away that week ,but made arrangements with my neighbor to gain access to the house if needed.They didn't replace the siding while they were there. I called **** several times with the reply they would be there this week,3weeks have gone by still no ****.I left a message saying I was notifying the BBB on 6/16/14
Desired Settlement: Replace siding and post caps,reimburse the cost of the material
From: ***** ****** ****************************

** ********* insurance denied coverage for hail damage.
** ********* neighbors on both sides of him received hail damage.
la rich by mistake discarded to vinyl postcaps during cleanup la rich is sending out a check certified mail for reimbursements ($18.00)
la rich is not going to replace siding for free regardless if we were referred to his neighbor.
siding was damaged as a result of hail damage. vinyl siding repair was never part of any contract
***** ****** la rich llc owner
I never received a check or a e-mail from La Riche.Why would I write to if the problem had been resolved.I would suggest you read the original letter that I sent to you and read S**** ****** response.I don't think he is seeing things correctly.I would also suggest that you talk to **** the forman on the job.We had discussed the damages and he said they would take care of it.I would also suggest that ***** talk to **** about the damages, some how ***** has gotten all wrong
From: ********************** *******************************
Thanks for the follow up.I have not heard in any way from **** ****** .He needs to talk to ****, his job forman about what we discussed pertaining to the damages that occur during the replacement of the roof.When I read his last e-mail it did not make any sense,He has everything mix up.I'am open to sitting down with **** and ***** and getting this ironed out.

Complaint: Signed a contract on 7/25/2013 to have roof torn off and replaced new gutters also. I PAID EXTRA FOR THE GOLDEN PLEDGE WARRANY 25 YEARS 100% WITH 50 YEAR SHINGLE BEST WARRANTY IN THE INDUSTRY. FOUR MONTHS AFTER HAVING ROOF INSTALLED THIS STILL HASN'T HAPPENED. SOMEONE FROM *** THE SHINGLE MAKER IS SUPPOSED TO COME OUT TO INSPECT OUR ROOF AND SIGN OFF THAT IT WAS DONE CORRECTLY. WHEN I CALLED LA RICH IN AUGUST, SEPTEMBER AND OCTOBER I WAS TOLD I NEEDED TO WAIT LONGER.I FINALLY CALLED *** MYSELF AT ************** TO INQUIRE WHEN THEY WOULD BE OUT. I GAVE MY HOUSE ADDRESS AND WAS TOLD THEY NO INFORMATION REGARDING MY HOME HAVING THE ROOF REPLACED. THEY SAID THE CONTRACTER NEEDED TO CONTACT THEM. HERE IS THE PROBLEM THEY CAN TAKE YOUR MONEY FOR SERVICES AND NOT LIVE UP TO THEIR END OF THE CONTRACT.THIS WARRANY COVERS ME IN CASE THE CONTRACTER EVER GOES OUT OF BUISNESS I CAN ALSO TRANSFER THE WARRANTY ONE TIME IF I SELL MY HOME.WHT DIDN'T THEY DO THIS? WHEN MY ROOF WAS REPLACED I WAS OUT OF STATE THE NEXT DAY IT RAINED. SOME OF THAT RAIN WAS INSIDE MY HOUSE.......YOU THINK THIS COULD BE THE REASON THEY HAVEN'T SENT MY WARRANTY INFORMATION IN?SO INSTEAD OF HAVING A 50 YEAR WARRANTY LIJKE I PAID FOR I ONLY HAVE A 25 YEAR WARRANTY!!!!!
Desired Settlement: I WANT THEM TO HONOR THE CONTRACT I SIGNED.
HAVEING TROUBLE RESPONDING TO COMPLAINT RECIEVED AGAINST LA RICH LLC
la rich is a *** master elite roofing contractor. what this means is when la rich finishes a roof with the golden pledge warranty. *** will come to homeowners home and inspect finished roof for any installation problems.
this golden pledge warranty is in affect from the day the roof is installed. So there was never a moment that mr ********* roof was not protected. further more warranty has been registered with *** (warranty #******)
if I can be of further assistance please do not hesitate to contact.
ps a simple phone call by mr ********* would have been serfice in any confusion on this matter
sincerely ***** ****** la rich llc
In response to Scott Deprey’s reply. I CALLED LA RICH IN AUGUST AGAIN IN SEPTEMBER AGAIN IN OCTOBER. I WAS TOLD EVERY MONTH TO WAIT LONGER FOR SOMONE FROM *** TO COME OUT AND INSPECT MY ROOF. SO TO SAY A “SIMPLE” PHONE CALL TO LA RICH WOULD HAVE BEEN SUFFICENT WAS TOATALLY LUDACRIS. I DO HOPE MY EXPLANATION SPELLED OUT BELOW CLEARS UP THE CONFUSION *** ****** SEEMS TO HAVING!!!!!!!!!!!!
I ALSO SAID IN MY COMPLAINT I CALLED *** HOT LINE AT ************** ON 11/28/2013 ALMOST 5 MONTHS AFTER MY ROOF WAS INSTALLED TO SEE IF LA RICH CALLED TO REGISTER MY ROOF WITH *** NO THEY DIDN’T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE GOLDEN PLEDGE WARRANTY IS ONLY IN EFFECT IF THE “MASTER ELITE ROOFING CONTRACTOR” CALLS TO REGISTER THE ROOF WITH ***. I WAS TOLD THIS BY THE *** REPRESENTATIVE I SPOKE WITH.
WHEN DID LA RICH REGISTER MY ROOF WITH WARRANTY NUMBER ******?
I CALLED *** AGAIN ON 12/6/2013 LA RICH FINALLY REGISTERED MY ROOF ON 12/6/2013. THE SAME DAY HE REPLYED TO THE BETTER BUISNESS BUREAU COMPLAINT THE ROOF WAS REGISTERED HOW CONVIENENT.
SO I HAD TO FILE A COMPLAINT WITH THE BETTER BUISNESS BUREAU FOR LA RICH TO DO THEIR PART TO HONOR THE CONTRACT I SIGNED IN JULY.
PS---THAT’S A **** OF A WAY TO DO BUISNESS!! YOU MAKE ME OUT TO BE THE BAD GUY WHEN IN REALITY THE PROBLEM WAS YOURS ALL ALONG.
SO NOW I’LL WAIT PROBABLY TILL THE SPRING TO GET MY ROOF INSPECTED. THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN DONE MONTHS AGO. HAD HE REGISTERED THE ROOF AFTER THE AUGUST INSTALLATION I WOULDN’T BE COMPLAINING NOW. THE COMPLAINT WILL BE RESOLVED WHEN SOMEONE FROM *** FINALLY SHOWS UP TO INSPECT YOUR WORK AND SIGNS OFF ON IT. KEEP IN MIND THAT’S WHAT I PAID FOR WHEN I SIGNED ON THE DOTTED LINE.
LA RICH IS A MASTER ELITE ROOFING CONTRACTOR WHAT THAT MEANS IS THE WARRANTY IS IN AFFECT FROM INSTALATION. *** is not required to sign off on the roof it is warrantied from date of install
so if it does take till spring for the inspection it does not affect warranty inseption. The warranty is in affect from install date.
I totally understand your frustration during my audit it was determined that a refund check was issued it was misunderstood as a refund for warranty, later determined it was for painting from a leak after install.
sorry again for delay but it doesnot change anything warranty is in affect from date of install
***** ****** owner
Once again there are really 2 warranties here. The one you get from LA RICH when your roof is installed.
The other one is from *** the shingle manufacturer it's the GOLDEN PLEDGE WARRANTY.
This is the WARRANTY I paid extra for on the contract. It is also the WARRANTY I had to complain to the BBB about not getting. As before I had to file a complaint for you to honor the signed contract. I finally did receive the GOLDEN PLEDGE WARRANTY in the mail from *** on 12/10/2013. That took 5 months to get.
I know the roof is warranted from the install date. Question our roof was installed on 8/8/2013. Why does the Golden Pledge Warranty have a 9/13/2013 installation date? See attached file.
You write you understand my level of frustration. You should include this in the contract so the customer knows what to expect when doing business with LA RICH MASTER ELITE CONTRACTOR!!!!!!!!!!
I'll close the complaint the day someone comes out to inspect the roof signs off on it. THIS COMPLETES THE CONTRACT I SIGNED WITH LA RICH THE MASTER ELITE CONTRACTOR IN JULY OF 2013
