ROOF PAINTING COMPANY DIRECTOR AND SALESPERSON JAILED FOR ROOF COATING SCAM!

A director and salesman of Newlook Roof Coatings Ltd based in Monmouth, were each sentenced to 12 months imprisonment yesterday for rogue trading offences.

In a case taken by Herefordshire Council’s trading standards service, prosecuting barrister Tim Moores told the court the company had, since September 2009, cold called victims who were predominantly elderly and vulnerable and coerced them into signing contracts for wholly unnecessary work that involved applying roof coatings The company stated that the moss found on the roof would destroy it and it would require a whole new replacement at an exorbitant cost. In addition, they charged far in excess of what a reasonable price should be by deceiving consumers with false show home discounts taken off outrageously high starting prices for the work.

Further illegal practices uncovered were, the salesman falsely calling himself a surveyor when he had no qualifications to do so and pressuring consumers by saying the discounted price was only available that day. For the 16 month period covered by the charges, it is estimated that the company made a staggering £1.7 million and in a two year period ending in December 2011, over £2.4 million until Trading Standards and West Mercia Police from Hereford raided their Monmouth offices.

To do so can potentially damage or break the tiles and remove any aesthetic granular tile finish. Further, pressure washing can also force water between the tile and roofing felt, spraying water in to the roof space/loft.
