Cape Coral Construction Board revokes roofer’s license

Joshua W. Campbell of Campbell Roofing & Sheet Metal of Florida had his license revoked in Cape Coral on Wednesday.

Campbell was required to go before the Cape Coral Construction Board concerning disciplinary action and he did not show up. Campbell has 38 expired permits with Cape Coral and prior to the meeting, his license was on hold because his insurance was not up to date.

Collier County tells us Campbell is inactive with the county due to insurance issues and Charlotte County said Campbell’s license is disabled because it received a cancellation letter for his workers comp in March 2019.

WINK News talked to more than 30 people who say Campbell took their deposits and took off.

Cape Coral resident Melissa Spaich says she done all she can to get Campbell to finish the work.

“Every day, I send emails, make phone calls,” Spaich said.

Spaich paid Campbell Roofing and Sheet Metal of Florida more than $10,000, or two thirds of the cost for a new roof, a year ago. Workers tore off the roof in October and she says no one has been back to finish the job.

“It’s hard earned money that we’ve saved up for,” Spaich said, “to get the roof done, and here we are.”

Now, she says there are issues inside the house.

“We’ve got a lot of water damage,” Spaich said. “There’s drywall issues.”

With no real resolution and thousands down the drain, the Spaich’s do not know how they are going to pay for a new roof again.

Spaich said she and her husband, Joshua, will likely have to dip into their savings, work extra hours, even get a second job.

In court documents obtained by WINK News, Campbell wrote down that he’s in the process of closing his business and declaring bankruptcy. We have not seen anything filed.

Collier County Licensing Compliance is also investigating Campbell and the Attorney General tells us its consumer investigation is ongoing.

Spaich is happy to hear Campbell can no longer do this to other people in Cape Coral.

We reached out to Campbell and his lawyer told us:

Mr. Campbell is cooperating with the Department of Business and Professional Regulation, and Attorney General’s Office to resolve matters. Mr. Campbell wants to make sure the clients are either compensated or made whole.
