A Colorado roofing company has been ordered to repay more than $50,000 to Kansas consumers, Attorney General Derek Schmidt announced today.

All Trades Construction, also known as Duran Duran Roofing, and Louisa Duran were accused of violating the Kansas Consumer Protection Act by taking down payments from at least six Kansas consumers but never performing any work on the consumers’ roofs. The Attorney General also alleged that All Trades Construction and Luisa Duran forged one consumer’s signature on an insurance proceeds check. The complaints came from Greenwood, Shawnee and Johnson Counties.

The Attorney General obtained a judgment in Shawnee County District Court ordering the company and Duran to repay a total of $50,954 to Kansas consumers and to pay an $80,000 civil penalty. The judgment also enjoins the company and Duran from further violations of the Kansas Consumer Protection Act.

Schmidt reminded Kansans that it is usually best to work with a trusted, local contractor when home repairs are required. They should be sure the company they are working with has the required local permits and insurance. Beginning July 1, roofing contractors will also be required to register with the Attorney General’s Office, pursuant to the Kansas Roofing Registration Act recently approved by the Legislature and signed into law by Governor Brownback.

Kansans who may have been a victim of a scam or unlawful door-to-door sales practice should contact the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division at (800) 432-2310 or www.ag.ks.gov.
