BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – The plywood went down first, followed by the tar paper, and finally the shingles Thursday morning at the Grover Drive home of Brenda Jones.
When Jones’ story aired on WKBN, Storm Service Solutions contacted her to help out.
In June, Jones signed over her $5,700 insurance check to Ohio Restoration Group, but the roof wasn’t fixed. Now, the owners of Ohio Restoration, Ancil Wilson and Camri Druzen, are facing felony charges after 11 people filed complaints with Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine’s Office.
Druzen turned herself in and appeared in court last week, while Wilson remains at large.
Keith Chandler, owner of Storm Service Solutions, said he saw Jones’ story on WKBN 27 First News and he wanted to help.
“We just felt like this was something that was giving our industry a black eye, and we wanted to reach out and help someone in our community, show that not all companies operate the same way,” he said.
Jones still wants Wilson and Druzen prosecuted to the fullest, but for now, she’s happy — and thankful — to have her roof repaired.
“If they didn’t come step up and help me out, this wouldn’t have got done. I’m on social security, and I just couldn’t have afforded it,” she said.
