SENIOR SHOWCASE: Let's hope we will never need this...

5/27/2014

The regular hail storms have missed us in Garden City the past few years. This is good news. There is more good news when that hail storm does arrive. Legislators approved the Kansas Roofing Contractor Registration Act in 2013. The law requires every contractor that charges for commercial or residential roofing to obtain a registration certificate from the attorney general's office.

The regular hail storms have missed us in Garden City the past few years. This is good news. There is more good news when that hail storm does arrive. Legislators approved the Kansas Roofing Contractor Registration Act in 2013. The law requires every contractor that charges for commercial or residential roofing to obtain a registration certificate from the attorney general's office.

The law took effect on July 1, 2013. The Kansas Attorney General's office is reminding homeowners to make sure they hire a registered roofing contractor. All roofers in Kansas are to comply with a new Kansas law requiring them to register with the attorney general's office.

"As storm season begins across our state, it's important for homeowners to make sure their roofer has registered before signing any contract, paying any money or having any work done," said Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt. Before hiring a roofer, consumers should ask for a copy of the roofer's registration certificate from the attorney general's office and then go online to verify that the roofer is in fact listed in the attorney general's online directory. The online directory is available at www.InYourCornerKansas.org.
