Abello's Roofing Helps Green Life Exteriors' Customers

For months now Our 11 Call for Action team has been investigating claims against the company, Green Life Exteriors and its owner, Bill Bowen. The company's accused of being paid for new roofs, taking the money, but then never doing the work.

Bowen allegedly has left scores of homeowners in the lurch. Terri Roney told me she paid the company $2,300 months ago. Terri says, "I still need a new roof. I got nothing."

Many were angered when they heard about Bowen's criminal record, having served four years in a Virginia prison for conspiracy and mail fraud.
Bowen's Web site also claims he served in the U.S. Marine Corps, even though military officials tell me they can't find any record of Bowen ever having serving in the Marines.

After hearing all of this, Pete Eaglin with Abello's Roofing called me, asking to help Bowen's customers.

Pete said, "It was just a great opportunity to just give back to the community."

Now, Terri Roney has a new roof thanks to Tim Abello and his crew.

Tim says, "If we could change the way Colorado Springs feels about roofing companies, just one roof at a time, then it worth doing it."

Now Tim's reaching out to all those who claim to have been scammed by Green Life Exteriors. He's hoping to erase what he believes is a smear against the roofing industry.

Call For Action will keep you posted about Bill Bowen and the felony theft charges against him. In the meantime, Pikes Peak Regional Building Department will hold another hearing on November 17th. This time to look at revoking Green Life Exterior's license.

    What a wonderful story of something good coming from something bad. A criminal gave the Abello brothers a reason to do something good for someone and they jumped at the chance. That is what it means to be a good person, a good neighbor, and someone who has a good heart. I hope that the Abello's Roofing company get a lot of business because of this but I bet you that's not why they did it. God Bless you, Tim & Pete! PS: Kristin, call Betty, she's a great listener. And tell her that Monica said she can help you too. She will put us in touch.

    Green Life Exteriors tried to scam us and our neighbors and we ended up working with the BBB and the Regional Building Authority's attorney to help get these people out of business. I would LOVE to talk to Betty Sexton about this if she is interested. They are 100% scammers.

    Thank you KKTV for running this article showing that this company has compassion and integrity. I hope many homeowners will consider giving their business to such an upstanding company. I checked their BBB listing and they have had ZERO complaints over the last three years. I would be happy to give my roofing business to this company after what they've done to help the community. I hope that the police are able to find and throw the book at the owner of GreenLife.
