Since the weather has gotten nice, you may be thinking of improving your home. You should be careful in picking a contractor as scammers can take advantage of the home improvement season.
Here are ways you can protect yourself against home improvement scam from leading exterior siding contractor, A Cut Above Exteriors.
Warning Signs of Home Improvement Scam
Most scammers will appear at your doorstep, offering home improvement services using the leftover materials from a previous job. These people only accept cash payment and ask for upfront payment. They will make you secure the necessary building permits. In addition, they have no permanent business address and no business number in your local telephone directory.
There’s a huge chance you’re dealing with a scammer if they are asking you for an immediate decision or suggesting you borrow money from a lender they know.

Protect Yourself Against Scammers
Don’t immediately hire any contractor without researching about them first. Always get more than one estimate before making a decision. Only consider a contractor who can provide you with a written contract.
It’s best to work with a local company and ask for references from previous projects. Make sure the contractor you’re considering hiring is fully licensed and insured. Give the final payment only when the job is done.
