Broward County shutter provider to refund customers $790,000

Broward hurricane shutter provider Robert Hoffman has agreed to refund dissatisfied customers a total of $790,000 in a settlement with the state after he was accused of malfeasance by both local law enforcement and Florida’s attorney general Pam Bondi over incomplete orders. Hoffman, owner of Hallandale Beach-based Rolladen shutters, has also been banned from marketing or selling the shutters for one year, the Miami Herald reported. Hoffman’s company Rolladen, which has struggled to survive since South Florida’s construction market crashed in late stages of the last decade, can still sell its signature product, but an outside contractor must install them.
