BBB Accreditation

Leatherwood Roofing is not BBB Accredited.

BBB verifies that BBB Accredited Businesses have required competency licenses when they apply for or renew their accreditation and encourages you to re-verify them. BBB does not routinely check licensing requirements or status on non-accredited businesses and recommends that you do so.

Had Leatherwood Roofing install a metal roof, it has been leaking for 6 mths & he has not been able to fix it
My wife & I decided on a metal roof since we are close to retirement & we thought we wouldn't have to worry about it. Since he installed the roof & all the continued problems, we've researched the installation & he didn't install the roof correct, he installed it directly on the shingles & not the wood frames that was the correct way. We now have mold/mildew stained ceiling, walls & closet & although we clean it up it just comes back whenever it rains, hard or soft, just any rain. Below is a timeline of the roof leak. We paid cash in full, over $6K.

10/14/2014 rains again, two more spots leaking in den along with the leaks in the hallway & bathroom closet, notify Mr. *********** no response

Desired Settlement
Since this roof was not installed correctly we are requesting a full refund so we can find a real company to install a roof on our home that we won't have to worry about, there is no way since this roof hasn't made it 1/4 of it's life it will ever be a good roof. This is the only settlement we will be satisfied with.

Business Response
*** *********** owner of Leatherwood Roofing
We installed the metal roof according to all specifications of the manufacturer, with absolutely no problems afterwards. Mr. **** called some time after the installation and reported a leak on a low slope area on the back, he told me the next door neighbors tree had fallen and had struck the house in that area and a leak had occurred. The area in question represents only a small fraction of the entire roof and there are no problems any where else. We are still looking into the problem and will continue until it is resolved.

Consumer Response
(The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.)
This roof was leaking before the tree ever fell down, the tree tops only brushed the gutters on the sunroom, never came close to this area. Mr *********** has not arrived when he says he will and after nine months the leak has gotten worse into another part of the house also. Mr *********** did not install this roof as spec go, he did not install the ribs on the roof for the metal, he attached this metal directly to the roof on top of the shingles. I really wished if never heard the name ************ he has totally ruined my home.

Final Business Response
In response to complaint ******** Leatherwood Roofing has worked to resolve issue and will continue to do so. But the customer's request for a full refund of materials and labor is unreasonable and unfounded.
It is our hope that this issue can be resolved on some sort of middle ground but it this point we're not sure what that is.

I need completion of roofing job that included repair of chimney.
Around March 2012 I contracted with Leatherwood Roofing to install a roof-over of my existing roof as well as installing metal on the corners of my chimney as the wood was beginning to rot. The roof was properly installed by the employees of Leatherwood Roofing but the chimney work was delayed due to the owner's surgery of his hand. I told him no problem as he could get to it when he healed. Months later when I contacted him about finishing the job he said that his parent's house had burned and that he needed to help them through the insurance and rebuilding issues. Again I said no problem, that he could complete the job when he was finished dealing with his parents house situation. I have been patient, too patient according to my wife, but it has been almost a year and a half. After much pleading with **. *********** about water leaking into my den and a major storm system heading our way he put a temporary repair on the chimney. I have tried numerous times to get them to come out and finish the job. I get the same story each time, 'I am on a big job but I will get to it this week.' After a year and a half the wood has rotted and falls off after each rain and wind storm. It needs to be sided and sealed. It is time to finish the job or refund me some of the money so I can hire someone to do it.

Desired Settlement
Complete the job or refund me a portion of the contracted money so I can hire someone to do the job.

Business' Initial Response
I appreciate **. ******* patience with the chimney due to unforeseen health and family tragedies. I can finish the chimney next week. And will see it done personally.

Business' Final Response
Regarding the claim # above, the work has been started and is complete minus 2 small pieces that are on order at this time. They will be in tomorrow and we will be installing those. Will email you when they are on. Thank you.
