Contractors going door to door during the spring season looking for work should serve as a red flag to homeowners. Bucks County Director of Consumer Protection. Mike Bannon urges homeowners to simply check them out before handing over cash.
“We always see a bit of it. You know, a person knocks on your door saying your roof may need a little extra work, we noticed some old shingles up their. Some times we run in to work that landscapers provide. You have to do your homework and check out anyone who is going to do work on your home.”
Bannon adds, you can check out contractors through the State Attorney Generals website and the Bucks County Consumer Protection Website. Bannon say very often, contractors will perform part of the work and never return to finish the job. In most cases, a homeowner has already paid part or all of the money to the contractor. Bannon was a guest Tuesday morning on WNPV's New AM-Edition with Darryl Berger.
