If you are a homeowner, no doubt your home will need some repairs, whether it be a large purchase such as a roof or a small repair such as a leaky faucet.  How do you find a contractor?  Researching contractors and finalizing your decision can be a tedious and stressful process.  Learn more about ways to protect yourself from contractor fraud. Best practices to be discussed include:   licensed contractors; payment by check or credit card, rather than cash; small initial payments to start the “job”; a written contract which describes the details of the job, the start and end date, and the terms and conditions of the payment”; the contractor pulls the permit from the building departments; and proof of insurance.  This presentation will you feel more prepared and reduce the risk of consumer fraud.
