OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (CNN/KAKE) - Roofers in Kansas tore the roof off the wrong house this week, leaving the homeowner scrambling for help.

The owner, Steven Kornspan, rushed to the Overland Park home Monday morning after his renters heard banging. When he got there, his roof was mostly just a wooden frame.

No workers were there, but they left a pile of shingles on the ground. 

Kornspan contacted police and his insurance company. He was able to get in contact with the roofing company, which told Kornspan the workers would be fired. 

The company offered to cover the cost of fixing the roof, and it was replaced Tuesday at a cost of about $6,000.

Overland Park police are treating the incident as a civil matter.
