Roofing company banned from doing business in North Dakota

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) State officials say a roofing company has been banned from doing business in North Dakota.

Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem said he has issued a cease and desist order against McKenna’s Roofing and its owner Joshua McKenna.

McKenna lists addresses in Brampton, North Dakota, and Long Prairie, Minnesota.

A state investigation started in August showed that McKenna had taken an advance payment of over $5,000 for a roofing job and the homeowner spent the next year trying to get McKenna to do the work or provide a refund, without success.

Officials say McKenna’s contractor’s license had already expired when he took the money.
