Equity Exteriors/James Scuka Now "Everdry Roofing" Suwanee
Franklin County Court of Common Pleas, Case No. 10 CVH 03 3747
The Attorney General originally filed this home improvement lawsuit on Dec. 18, 2007.
Numerous consumer complaints alleging failure to deliver or shoddy and incomplete work fueled this lawsuit.
After obtaining new information on the whereabouts of James Scuka, the owner of the roofing business, the Attorney General re-filed the lawsuit on March 9, 2010. The complaint alleged violations of the Consumer Sales Practices Act, Home Solicitation Sales Act and Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.
Service was obtained and the defendants failed to file an answer.
A Final Order and Entry Granting Default Judgment was entered on Aug. 23, 2010. It included a permanent injunction, $314,557.53 in consumer restitution and a $125,000 civil penalty.
James Scuka closed Equity Exteriors in Ohio after ripping off their customers and failing to pay their roofing subcontractors. James Scuka closed one roofing company and came to the Atlanta area and opened Everdry Roofing in Suwanee. This is an example of those awful roofing companies you see on the news. Even more shocking is Everdry Roofing Suwanee's endorsement by the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce.
On Dec. 18, 2007, the Ohio Attorney General's Office filed a civil lawsuit in Franklin County Common Pleas Court charging James Scuka, individually and doing business as Equity Exteriors, Inc., with:

-shoddy and unworkmanlike service
-collecting deposits from consumers without disclosing the terms and conditions of when and how deposits would be refunded
-using written contracts that do not contain any notice of the consumers' three-day right of rescission
-failing to honor express and/or implied warranties of merchantability
-continuing to solicit new customers and accept money when Mr. Scuka knew or should have known that the precarious financial position of the company would prevent Equity Exteriors from completing agreed work
-subcontracting work without disclosure to consumers
-failing to compensate subcontractors, and thereby exposing consumers to mechanics liens
-refusing reasonable opportunities afforded by consumers to cure their failure to comply with their warranties
-providing blank "5 Year Customer Warranty" forms to roofing customers which purportedly promised to guarantee against roof leaks, without providing mandatory disclosures
-failing to designate their warranty as "full" or "limited"
