Wichita roofer banned from doing business in Kansas

WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

A Wichita man operating as a roofing contractor has been banned from doing business in Kansas.

Attorney General Derek Schmidt said  that Joshua White, doing business as Old Town Roofing & Remodeling, LLC, was permanently banned from operating as a roofing contractor in the state.

District Judge Warren Wilbert approved the default judgment last week in Sedgwick County District Court after White failed to respond to a lawsuit filed against him. White was also ordered to pay the attorney general’s investigation costs and a civil penalty.

Schmidt accused White of operating as a roofing contractor without properly registering as required by the Kansas Roofing Registration Act.
