Buyer Beware: After-Storm Contractor Scams

If Mother Nature didn’t do ample damage with heavy rains, lightning, and hail, get ready to weather another storm in the way of contractor scams. As if there wasn’t enough to deal with in terms of flooding, downed trees, torn-off shingles, and cracked siding, now you have to put your trust (and money!) in the hands of a complete stranger.

What Could Go Wrong?

Simply put: A lot. When you need a contractor to help you respond to storm damage, the goal is to find someone who is skilled, licensed, insured, and fits your budget. However, some of what you might be presented with by contractors that aren’t up to snuff is just the opposite. The result could negatively end in permanent property damage, stolen money, and legal risk.

 

Save Yourself from Contractor Scams

You might think, “I’d never get taken by a scammer.” Maybe that’s true. But in the interest of it’s better to be safe than sorry, beware of the following red flags to protect your personal, financial, and legal security.

You know the saying “go with your gut”? If something just feels off about a contractor, even in you can’t quite put your finger on it, trust the instinct. That may mean doing more homework to talk to contractors’ past clients or to read online reviews. Or it may mean abandoning one contractor in exchange for someone else.
