GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — State officials have suspended the licenses of a West Michigan contractor and the licenses of businesses connected to him. 

The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs says it has suspended the license of Snyder’s Roofing in Grand Rapids, run by Eric David Snyder. The license of Snyder doing business as Snyder Roofing in Greenville has also been suspended. 

Those suspensions were made effective on March 25, 2019. 

Officials say that actions come after two other affiliated builder licensees, All American Remodeling and Snyder, were suspended after not complying with the conditions of two consent orders.

Investigators received two separate complaints against All American Remodeling and Snyder from two homeowners.

In one instance, All American Remodeling and Snyder entered a contract with a homeowner to tear off an existing roof and install a metal roof.

An inspection done by a local inspector cited three violations, including failing to get a building permit, not installing a roof covering and failing to install flashing properly, according to LARA.

At that time, All American Remodeling and Snyder agreed to a consent order that imposed a $500 fine to be paid within 60 days, but failed to comply with the consent order and their licenses were suspended on May 24, 2018, officials say.

In a second instance, All American Remodeling and Snyder entered a contract with another homeowner for construction work including tearing off their existing roof, installing of a new roof decking and shingles, modifying of roof overhangs and installing of three roof solar panels, state officials say.

Investigators say that violations occurred including failing to include their license information as a part of the contract, failing to obtain a building permit before the start of work and at the end of the project.

After eventually obtained a building permit, All American Remodeling and Snyder agreed to a pay a $1,000 fine and $1,044.60 in restitution to the city of Grand Rapids within 60 days. However, the agreement was violated, and their licenses were suspended on May 24, 2018.
