Unfortunately, chimney repair is one of the most common contactor scams to be on the lookout for. Other common contractor scams include roof repair, driveway sealing, furnace repair, and storm-chasers offering to fix damage after a storm. While there are many “red flags” or warning signs, be especially aware of: “Contractors or Companies” that go door to door looking for business without credentials These people just “happen to be in the neighborhood” and are looking to sell you a product or service at a good rate. Accepts only cash or large deposits Check your state laws about what contractors can ask for. Bid comes in far below others It’s good practice to get a few quotes from different companies. Cannot provide references or referrals Look at company reviews and realistic time lines companies are promising. When looking at reviews, search public ones listed on places such as Google, Yelp, or Angi. Cannot provide a license or insurance proof Contractors and Companies should be able to provide you with a copy of insurance and their bushiness license number upon request. How to find a reputable contractor? Be sure to check with your local trade organizations for leads on a reputable company. You might try asking your friends and neighbors for recommendations.
