AZ ROC: Hereford-Based Contractor's Licenses Summarily Suspended
PHOENIX, Ariz., (Aug. 3, 2021) — On Thurs., July 29, 2021, Arizona Registrar of Contractors (AZ ROC) summarily suspended the CR-45 Sheet Metal and the CR-3 Awnings, Canopies, Carports and Patio Covers licenses held by Kanmar Construction LLC, a Hereford-based contracting business.
In June 2021, AZ ROC substantiated two complaints of poor workmanship and issued directives giving Kanmar Construction LLC at least 15 days to correct the work. Not only did the company fail to make the corrections, but the Agency received four additional consumer complaints; two alleging deposits were taken and no work performed and two alleging poor workmanship.
Based on the complaints received and the preliminary investigation, the Agency issued a summary suspension alleging nine charges including:
- Three counts of failure to meet the minimum industry workmanship standards.
- One count of abandonment of a contract or refusal to work after submitting a bid on work without a legal excuse for the abandonment or refusal.
- Three counts of failure to include required elements within a written contract for work over $1,000.
- Two counts of failure to take corrective action after a directive to correct work was issued.
As the investigation continues, the formal citation may be supplemented.
A summary suspension prohibits the licensee from being able to legally contract as of the day it is issued. In turn, it requires the Agency to provide the contractor a prompt hearing at the Office of Administrative Hearings and the hearing is currently set for August 16, 2021, at 9:00 AM.
