Unlicensed roofers are getting off easy



Shawnta Mitchell at CIB informed me that if one suspects a roofer is unlicensed, you must file a written complaint. They have no enforcement ability. They mail the complaint to the district attorney’s office. You have to give the devil his dues, and these crooked lawyers now turned crooked politicians did a doozy writing these ineffective and lax laws.

Unlicensed roofers only pay a $500 fine and no jail time. Thank you, Mary Fallin. However, if you illegally dump, there is the same $500 fine and jail time.

Florida, Nevada and California have some of the strictest laws in the nation. The first offense carries an automatic $10,000 fine. All this means is that crooked lawyers can’t get the child molester off for less money and also two years jail time. Makes you want to live in Florida, Nevada or California, doesn’t it?

In Yukon and the Village, a licensed roofer has to pull a permit just like in Florida, Nevada and California. That is all it would take. No green permit in the window at the job site, and the building inspector red flags the job and runs the roofing crew off.

The job can’t start back up until a permit is pulled. Only licensed roofers can pull permits. If you don’t believe me, call the building inspector in Yukon or the Village. They don’t have crooked lawyers and crooked politicians in Yukon.

On June 28, I was in the Moore Building Permit Office attempting to pull a permit to rebuild. My contractor is a licensed roofer and licensed general contractor in Moore. You guessed it: I won’t hire child molesters.

Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John Doak sent his Insurance Fraud team in to pull a list of all the licensed roofers and contractors in Moore. I have seen these guys in IHOP. They all wear guns on their hips. Off they went, driving up and down the street, banging on the doors of unsuspecting homeowners. The next day, there were fewer signs in front yards when I drove down.
