Need hail damage repair work? Beware of scammers


Many homeowners in KOTA Territory are discovering that the sun is not the only thing that comes out after a summer hailstorm. So do "pop-up" repair shops and door- to- door salesmen.

You need to be cautious!

Some repair companies use aggressive and misleading tactics in order to get your business.
So, here are some things the Better Business Bureau suggests:
* Do not be rushed into signing a contract with a particular company.
* Get business cards
* Ask for written estimates for the work.
* Talk to your insurance agent
* Ask for advice on how to proceed in getting repairs made.
* Keep receipts for temporary repairs.
* Investigate the track record of any roofer or contractor you consider hiring. Look for companies with a good reputation in your community.
* Call your Better Business Bureau for help, get references
* Do not give anyone a deposit until you are sure they are reputable.
