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.

Buyer beware!

#James Lee Scuka, 39, of Clarecastle Drive, is out of jail on $15,000 bond.He has been charged with theft by deception.

#One warrant alleges Scuka, a self-employed contractor for Everdry Roofing, accepted two checks totaling $8,885.47 for roof repairs but failed to complete the work.

Police allege Scuka “knew the company was having problems and that the work wouldn’t be done.”

#A second warrant alleges deposit account fraud and felony theft by taking.Police allege Scuka accepted a $14,439 check from a McDonough customer and failed to complete the work.

#When the customer balked at the amount and demanded a partial refund, police said Scuka wrote a check for $6,279.19 that bounced.

How are they getting away with all of this terrible things.

James Scuka came to my house after a year of leeks from their new roof they put on.He tore out the wall and ceiling because it had rotted.

Saw how much mold was there and just left. He even tore off the siding on the house.

After reading everybody's post this guy should be in jail.He should be not be licensed in sc or any other state.

Looks accurate to me. It's easy to see that this is a true case regarding James Scuka of Everdry Roofing in Suwanee just by looking at the Ohio Attorney General's report.
