The U.S. Attorney’s Office reached a settlement agreement Friday with a Bangor roofing company accused of making false claims in work it performed on government construction projects.

U.S. Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Belcon Enterprises, formerly Roof Systems of Maine, entered into a settlement agreement in which the company will pay $439,500 to resolve allegations that it violated the federal False Claims Act on government construction contracts between 2010 and 2014.

Belcon, based in Bangor, provided roofing and siding services to commercial and industrial installations throughout Maine. It also did subcontracting work on government construction contracts.

Belcon was accused of billing for metal wall panel installation work that didn’t conform to contract requirements and specifications at the Army National Guard’s Armed Services Reserve Center in Brunswick. The company also allegedly allowed the panels to be altered, installed in wrong locations and did not use sealant during the installations.

Belcon also used off-contract materials on two other projects for the Navy, leading to corrosion and safety and structural problems on its project at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery.

The False Claims Act permits the federal government to recover up to three times the amount of damages incurred, in addition to civil penalties ranging from $5,500 to $11,000 per violation.

The government was represented by the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the Naval Criminal Investigative Service and the Defense Criminal Investigative Service. Belcon cooperated with the government during the investigation.
