Attorney General DeWine Sues Owner of Cleveland-Area Roofing Company for Consumer Law Violations

5/24/2012

(CLEVELAND) – Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine today announced a lawsuit against Matthew Schultz, the owner of All Season Roofing & Home Improvement, for multiple violations of Ohio consumer law, including failure to deliver and shoddy work.

Matthew Schultz of Middleburg Heights operates All Season Roofing & Home Improvement, which offers roof installation, roof repairs, and general home improvement work in Northeast Ohio.

In complaints filed with the Ohio Attorney General’s Office, consumers said the business either did shoddy work or no work at all. For example, a Strongsville consumer said she paid $9,500 for a new roof, but the roof started leaking the day after it was installed. A Chardon consumer said that after he paid a $5,000 deposit for a new roof, the business never returned to do any work.

The Attorney General’s lawsuit charges Matthew Schultz, doing business as All Season Roofing & Home Improvement, with multiple violations of Ohio’s Consumer Sales Practices Act, including failure to deliver, performing shoddy work, and the Deposit Rule. The lawsuit seeks injunctive relief, consumer restitution, and civil penalties.

Attorney General DeWine encourages consumers to research home improvement businesses with the Ohio Attorney General’s Office and Better Business Bureau before making any payments. Consumers also should ask for written estimates from several businesses before making a final section, and they should get receipts for any deposits they make.

Consumers who believe they have been treated unfairly should file a complaint with the Ohio Attorney General’s Office at www.OhioAttorneyGeneral.gov or 800-282-0515.
