EL RENO, Okla. -- A homeowner finally has his house fixed after he said he was scammed by a roofer.   

Phil Royse filed a lawsuit against Matthue Black claiming he paid him nearly $7,400 to fix his roof last December and the work was never completed.

"I was ripped off," Royse said.

Employees at Big Sky Roofing heard Royse’s story and decided to help.

Big Sky replaced the roof for free and Crossroads Roofing Supply donated all the materials.

"After I heard his story we were going to help him," Jason Casteel said, Big Sky Roofing. "He just couldn't believe that anybody would go that far to take care of somebody."

The roof was finished this week and will now be inspected.

Royse said he didn’t have the money to make the repairs.

"There's not enough good to say about him or his company or his crew," Royse said.

Court records show Royse won a default judgment against Black.

Royse doesn’t know when he will get the money back.

According to court records, Black pled guilty to four similar cases involving homeowners who claimed they paid him thousands of dollars for work that was never completed.

Records show Black is required to pay back all of the money.

We were unable to reach Black for comment.
