TOPEKA — As people assess damage to their homes from Thursday evening's powerful winds, state officials Friday planned to lock down new rules to help protect homeowners from fraudulent roofing contractors.
The rules stem from a law legislators approved earlier this year that requires roofing contractors to register with the attorney general's office, prove they have liability and workers’ compensation insurance and submit identifying documents.
Starting July 1, all roofing contractors must get a registration certificate to legally work on commercial or residential roofs. Those who have applied for a certificate will be listed on the AG's website starting July 1.
The state's Rules and Regulations Board planned to discuss the details of registration law at a meeting Friday morning.
