My Affordable Roof files for bankruptcy
My Affordable Roof filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. On its web site, the business also removed Florida from the list of states they work in. The business incorporated in Florida just days before Hurricane Irma.
WINK News first investigated My Affordable Roof a year ago after getting multiple complaints from viewers.
- Collier County cracks down on roofer after complaints
- Roofer accused of not delivering, leaving families out of thousands
Of the four customers WINK profiled in the past year, two have had their problems resolved. One says he’s close to having it resolved, and the fourth says he never got a refund he felt he deserved.
While John David Boggs is the founder of the roofing company, Christopher Dutruch was the licensed roofer on most, if not all, of his Florida jobs.
Dutruch, however, is no longer allowed to act as a roofing contractor in Florida, according to Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation.
A spokesperson added:
“In June, Mr. Dutruch was placed on probation for two years in a prior disciplinary case. In order to resolve remaining cases, Dutruch has agreed to relinquish his license. This agreement will be presented to the Construction Industry Licensing Board during their next meeting in Stuart September 11 through 13. As part of his agreement, he agreed to go inactive pending the board’s final action in September.”
My Affordable Roof told us in a statement:
“The primary purpose in filing for bankruptcy is to preserve the company’s ability to finish the jobs that are currently underway and those that we are left to complete. This is why the company chose to file a Chapter 11 restructuring, and not a Chapter 7 liquidation. We care a great deal about our customers. But without continued support from all parties during our restructuring, the company will fail. Such a result will be devastating to our customers. For this reason, we made the prudent decision to commence a court supervised reorganization, which will protect those customers from suffering any harm.”
WINK News also asked My Affordable Roof how many jobs are left in Florida, and who is going to finish them. They did not answer those questions.
The Florida Office of the Attorney General tells us they have more than twenty complaints on file and that their consumer investigation is active and ongoing.
