Storm Damage - It's really time to Beware of Contractor
With storms and tornados passing through a number of states (and sirens going off for me), it's time to warn homeowners who have damage to beware of contractors who knock on your door offering a variety of services. There are a lot of scammers who flood areas after a storm. Not long ago a homeowner told me about being in a Home Depot while one gentlemen bought roofing shingles and a "How To Roof" book talking about the job they had and others they were going to get. Reputable contractors generally do not go knocking door to door. Generally do what you need to protect your home, e.g. tarp the roof, cut out a tree that is on the house. Hold off on things that are not an emergency until you have time to research the contractors and do your due diligence to be sure that they are good.
Be safe and don't become a victim twice!
