COLUMBUS, Ohio (Legal Newsline) - Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced a lawsuit on Thursday against a Franklin County roofer who allegedly failed to deliver promised services to his customers.
DeWine alleged that Adam Drzewiecki, the owner of Peak Restoration LLC, violated Ohio's consumer laws by failing to complete work as promised.
Drzewiecki and Peak Restoration offered to repair roofs, siding and other exterior parts of homes. DeWine's office received four consumer complaints alleging they paid thousands of dollars for work that was not completed as promised.
"This roofer encouraged consumers to make insurance claims for home repairs," DeWine said. "Then he took the consumers' money and never began the work. These consumers deserve justice."
DeWine alleged Drzewiecki and Peak Restoration violated the Consumer Sales Practices Act and the Home Solicitation Sales Act.
The lawsuit seeks consumer restitution, an injunction to stop further violations and civil penalties.
DeWine reminded consumers that Ohio law requires door-to-door sales contractors to provide consumers with a three-day right to cancel. Work cannot begin on a project until the three-day period ends.
