Con artists, scammers and sub-par businesses are everywhere. If you hire a dishonest contractor for a home improvement job, you might find yourself out a lot of money and worse, facing the need for further repairs to your home. 

Fortunately, there are ways to protect yourself through diligence. Angie’s List, a trusted site that allows actual customers to rate, review and discuss local businesses, does not want you to be taken by a scammer. The site provides a very useful article about roofing companies and how to avoid the bad ones. It can be found here.

The article lists, and provides details about, five actions that should raise red flags. These include:

  • Requiring a down-payment before beginning any work
  • Unsolicited door-to-door salespeople
  • Storm-chasers
  • High-pressure sales techniques
  • Inconsistent bids
