Home Improvement Scam is Back

One of the sure signs that spring has arrived is the door to door home improvement scam, which promises to fix your drive.

Mike Bannon says, they make promises and never carry them out, whether it’s promising to fix your driveway or paint a part of your home.

“We’ve already received some calls in the area, so these guys are out there and they travel around the east coast doing the same thing from one state to another.”

Bannon, Director of the Bucks County Department of Consumer Protection says, his office has some vital information for homeowners.

“We’ve got a great free brochure that every homeowner should look at before they do any home improvement contractor work. It just lays out the basics of what you need to now to hopefully avoid trouble.”

Bannon says homeowners call his office for a free brochure on home improvement at 215 348-6060. Bannon was a guest on WNPV’s AM Edition Tuesday morning.
