Hurricane Erma destroyed 2/3’s of my shingles. I battled with my insurance company who wanted to give me $4000 for my 2500’ roof for 7 months and got nowhere. FEMA radio adds said not to sign over the insurance claim to a roofing contractor… but no roofing contractor would even give me an estimate until you sign over your benefits first.
Needless to say a roofing contractor said they’d fight for me since my policy was to cover roof, Lanai roof and fence. They didn’t even bother and just did my roof. When the sales woman was at our house she made every promise in the world and I believed her. I gave her over $700 cash for my $500 deposit and a little more that $250 for a shingle upgrade.
She didn’t give me a receipt but said everything would come in the mail. After the roof was done and I begged for them to come back over and over to repair stuff they sent me a bill for my deposit and trumped up bill for wood installed. They filed a lien against me. I WILL NOT PAY.
What recourse do I have?
To roofers… you won’t like this, but I was cheated. Where can I complain and give it right back to them? It’s not fair and I’ve never been more angry in my life. I need advice.
