What are some common contractor scams?

If you’re planning a home improvement project, there are lots of great contractors to choose from. But remember, not all contractors operate within the law.

Your “rip-off” alert should be in high gear when a less than reputable contractor:

  • Goes door-to-door with high-pressure selling tactics

  • “Can’t find” his contracting license

  • Just happens to have materials left over from a previous job

  • Only accepts cash payments

  • Asks you to get the required permits

  • Does not list a business number in the local telephone directory

  • Says your job will be a “demonstration”

  • Pressures you for a decision

  • Asks you to pay for the entire job up-front

  • Strongly suggests that you borrow money from a lender the contractor knows. Be careful, or you could lose your home through a home improvement loan scam.

Make sure that a contractor is licensed and reputable. Ask your friends for referrals and ask the contractor for references. You can also research contractors with the Better Business Bureau, state and local consumer protection officials, and your state licensing agency.
