Topeka Roofing and Gutters temporarily banned from doing business in the state

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) – A Topeka contractor is temporarily banned from doing business in the state of Kansas.

Attorney General Derek Schmidt says a Topeka man and his contractor company are temporarily banned from doing business in Kansas due to alleged violations of Kansas consumer laws.

According to Schmidt, defendants Kevin Wilkinson and Topeka Roofing and Gutters, LLC are charged with several violations of the Kansas Consumer Protection Act and the Kansas Roofing Registration Act. He said the defendants are accused of making false claims and misrepresentations about services or repairs offered, engaging in overly one-sided consumer transactions in favor of the company, and acting as a roofer without being registered. He said the transition reportedly affected customers in Douglas, Jackson, Osage and Shawnee counties.

Schmidt said he is seeking restitution to the injured customers and civil penalties for violating the KCPA and KRRA.

According to Schmidt, Judge Mary Christopher, district magistrate of Shawnee Co., has introduced a temporary restraining order banning Wilkinson and Topeka Roofing and Gutters from doing business in the state until June 6. In addition, he said that Judge Christopher had ordered the defendants to be temporarily banned from advertising, soliciting, executing, accepting payments for, supervising, working or conducting business in any way related to the sale of real estate or services, including roofing and gutters.
