Cape Cod Roofing / Don't hire them

1 United States Review updated:

Don't hire Cape Cod Roofing to do anything. I had my roof done over and the crew damaged the house, left debris, nails all over. I deducted a small amount to pay for the damages and in return got harassed by Skip Schiappa the owner. He refused to fix the damages, sent a very lewd, crude and threatening letter. It got so bad I had to get the police involved since he resorted to verbally threatening me. All in all a very unprofessional man, doesn't respond well to complaints, lies through his teeth and doesn't care about your property while doing the job.

The job turned out to be a nightmare ordeal. Stay away from this guy.

    To whom it may concern,

    There is a rather pointless complaint on your complaint board about Cape Cod Roofing that is more of a personal attack than a productive consumer concern.

    In fact, this matter went to a State Board and the Massachusetts State Board ruled on absolutely nothing regarding the basis of the complaint you are hosting. The State of Massachusetts ruled that the complainant, Ms. Linda Rainville was requested to provide a deposit to Cape Cod Roofing greater than questionably allowed by contract law in Massachusetts. Cape Cod Roofing argued that 1) Ms Rainville never produced a deposit prior to the start of the job as allowed under Massachusetts Law (1/3, 1/3 and 1/3), and 2) when Ms. Rainville was finally able to produce a deposit for the project, the project was well past the midpoint of the project and that since Ms. Rainville's project required pre-paid special order material that under Massachusetts's Law it allows for a greater deposit... Cape Cod Roofing was allowed/due NOT only the deposit which was never provided, but the midpoint payment as well. Ms, Rainville was unable to produce little more than just the deposit.

    The State Board was sympathetic to the ambiguous argument of Ms. Rainville who simply entered into a contract she apparently had no means to fund at the timeor on time as detailed in her written contract.

    Cape Cod Roofing was fined $150.00 by the State of Massachusetts... the first and only fine in over 30 years of business. The fine had nothing to do with fraudulent actions, poor workmanship, none-performance of warranty/guaranty issues. See for yourself online at Massachusetts Home Improvement Contractors Program website.

    We here at Cape Cod Roofing & Siding have no issue with sites such as yours. However, when you host a completely fraudulent complaint and allow consumers to vent their anger in a negative, fraudulent and completely unjust vengeful way, then your site is of no value to anyone.

    We offer the following documents to anyone as proof; Ms. Rainville's written 1) our contract, 2) her complaint to the State of Massachusett's, 3) her cancelled checks (2 not 3), 4) our job report and daily photographs that clearly show the project was well past the midpoint before Ms. Rainville was able to produce a deposit, 5) certified material slips showing the best material was used, 6) before and after pictures of the project, 7) the written findings from the State of Massachusett's fining Cape Cod Roofing $150.00, 8) original correspondence between Cape Cod Roofing and Ms. Rainville showing Ms. Rainville was given preferential treatment reducing her roof cost by $2, 000.00 as Cape Cod Roofing used some of their own end of year credits to assist Ms. Rainville, 9) Ms. Rainville's own written letter in response to Cape Cod Roofing seeking balance due (original cost of contract/NOT a penny more) in which she claims she is being harrassed because she is gay... this letter will be emailed, faxed or sent to anyone requesting it along with our company response.

    Entering into a written contract you can NOT fund is not an accepted course of action.

    Taking vengence on those you failed to pay on time and in full in accordance with said contract is less than honorable.

    Receiving an invoice for the exact amount of the written contract amount and playing the "GAY CARD" instead of writing a check is reprehensive.

    The facts are clear, supported by written documents and available to anyone who requests them.

    Now you know and have proof the complainant Ms. Rainville is less than truthful... and we have the written State of Massachusetts documents to prove it.

    In closing, we have been a model roofing contracting firm for over 30 years. There is but 1 blemish on our otherwise spotless reputation... and it has nothing to do with failure to execute a written contract, workmanship, non-performance, warranty or guaranty or questionable material. It has to do with someone thinking they were going to get something for less than the agreed upon price.

    Your da...m...n right we were mad and rightfully so. We are still mad that 4 years later we are still attending to this matter... over what?... someone who just could not produce payments on time when they clearly recognized we are a roofing company... not a charitable lending organization.
