MILWAUKEE - Do you have downed trees and a damaged roof after last night's storm?
NARI Milwaukee is warning homeowners to avoid another casualty – watch out for storm chasers who prey on those who’ve suffered storm damage. According to NARI, dishonest contractors often over-promise, overcharge and under-deliver. In some cases, they create more damage than they fix.
If you’re interested, a NARI Milwaukee representative is available to talk about what to look out for.
Storm Chaser Red Flags
- A contractor who is going door-to-door soliciting business in a storm-damaged neighborhood.
- Oftentimes, the contractors are from outside the area or are even out of state.
- The contractor offers to start immediately and applies pressure to sign a contract right away and make a down payment.
- The contractor doesn’t provide a detailed estimate and contract.
