CHARLESTON – A Charleston couple alleges their home was damaged by the misapplication of roofing materials by a Kanawha County company.
Tammy J. Owen and Richard D. Owen filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against Shield Roofing and Construction LLC and GAF Corp. citing the West Virginia Consumer Credit and Protection Act, fraud and other counts.
The suit states on April 13, 2017, and May 10, 2017, the plaintiffs contracted Shield to install GAF products on the roof of their home. The suit states the plaintiffs obtained a warranty from GAF that included coverage for the misapplication of its products.
The suit states Shield improperly disconnected and removed the attic vent fan in the plaintiffs' home and in 2018, the ceiling showed signs of bowing and discoloration.
The plaintiffs allege they notified Shield of the issues on Dec. 26, 2018, but the defendant failed to repair the roof. The suit states GAF also failed to honor its warranty.
The plaintiffs are seeking all reasonable sums due, attorney fees and court costs. They are represented by Benjamin D. Ware and Shanna L. Brown of Goodwin & Goodwin LLP in Charleston.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Tod Kaufman.
