Russ Ultes / James Keating / Ultes & Keating you ripped me off!
I got ripped off by Russ Ultes from Tampa, Florida who installed my roof under the name US Roofing Systems. Now, after installing my roof with old flashing, used felt paper and failing to replace my rotten wood according to my contract my roof is leaking and US Roofing Systems is no longer in business. Other homeowners in my sub-division who used Ultes are experiencing the same problem. Now, he started another company called Federal Roofing and Restorationand with John Ricci of Charlotte, North Carolina who also managed the installation crews of US Roofing Systems. I tried to locate Federal Roofing and Restoration and have found they address they used is just a place they can pick-up mail but decieve people in believing they have another large comapny. I tried to reach my sales representaive, James Keating of Charlotte, North Carolina and have found he has started his own roofing company. So I gave Ultes a check to replace my roof in the excess of $7, 800 and this man provided me with a roof that leaks, no service and the additional cost of replacing my roof again. What has happened to me and others in Charlotte I have found happened to homeowners in Greenville, South Carolina with Ultes company Precision Roofing, which is now out-of-business. I talked to the Better Business Bureau and they have informed me that they have received many complaints regarding Russ Ultes and his business practices.
