Complaint Detail(s)

11/30/2015 Problems with Product/Service | Read Complaint Details

Additional Notes

Complaint: Unable to contact this company to exercise repairs under terms of the warranty. I have a 12 year warranty on the work they did for me back in 2011. In 2011 I contracted with American Roof System to do a restoration on my shake roof. I paid them $5700 and received a 12 year Warranty. The warranty states the from completion of the job to year 6 American Roof Systems **** provide 100% of labor and material to repair leaks, aging or damage which may occur to the roof. I have a couple of areas on the roof that need attention and I am well within the time frame of the first 6 years. Problem is, none of the phone numbers I have work!!! What recourse do I have if they are out of business?? If they are out of business is there any way that they can be compelled to hire a roofer to honor the Warranty??? With the expected wet winter looming, I would like to somehow get the roof inspected and repaired before the rains start.

Desired Settlement: I would like the Warranty to be honored. I would like the former owners to contact me (since I cannot contact them)and discuss a resolution to this matter. If they closed the business then I hope there is some program in place to handle things like this. I have not been able to reach this company at any of their phone numbers.

1/2/2014 Problems with Product/Service | Read Complaint Details

Additional Notes

Complaint: American Roof System reconditioned my roof in the summer of 2012. Part of the work is pealing off, and they are not correcting the defect In the summer of 2012, I contracted American Roof Systems to recondition my roof: the main part of the sales pitch was the durability of the work, backed by a 12 year warranty, and the BBB rating. Part of my roof is a flat surface. In the spring of this year I noticed that the overcoat applied on the flat part was blistering and pealing off. I contacted A. R. S multiple times and they eventually sent someone to evaluate in May. With no follow up, I called A.R.S. multiple times. Each time I was promised that "Operations would contact me back". Eventually on Sept 5, I received a call indicating that someone was going to come inspect my roof (again). Now 3 months later I have yet to have a follow through from A.R.S. and given the damage due to the poor workmanship, I am at risk with the rainy season.

Desired Settlement: I am seeking the rework to be redone with proper care, as a last resort for the part of the work corresponding to the flat roof to be refunded (approx $4000)

12/17/2013 Problems with Product/Service | Read Complaint Details

Additional Notes

Complaint: American Roof Systems, Inc. was asked 1 mo. ago to fix a patch of the roof where wind blew the shakes off. They said: 1-5 business days but no show. The person answering the phone had promised a 1-5 business day response, initially. On subsequent calls, (6 biz days later), he then said that the situation was complex, he could not explain, but because I was "in line" I would probably be taken care of within the next week. And today their phones don't work.

Desired Settlement: I would like them to be responsible for the cost of the repair.
