A local church paid a lot of money to get a new roof last year, but now, the pastor says they have been dealing with leaks ever since.

The Empowerment Worship Christian Center in Detroit got a brand new roof last June, and Pastor Tito Bentley said they paid over $20,000 to get it replaced.

Just a week later, he said one side of the building started leaking, and it didn't get any better.

Bentley said they had to take out ceiling tile, put up new drywall and much more.

When the contractor came back, Bentley said he patched a few things up and never came back, even though he has a warranty on his roof.

We tracked down the folks at Premiere Property Services in Eastpointe who the pastor signed the contract with. they promise to make this wrong right and fix the roof within the next 10 days.
