In the wake of a natural disaster, essentials such as fuel, food, ice, generators, lanterns, lumber, lodging etc may be short supply. Charging excessive prices for these and other necessities happens in awake of a storm or even afterwards.
Know your contractor- Fly by Night contractors who are not do not have a licenses or insurance always offer the lowest price but also bring to the table problems.
Get at least 3 estimates. Be certain you see licenses and proof of insurance from all.
Be aware of solicitors offering services you don’t need. They may just be looking to see what is inside your home.
Avoid doing any work with a company that is requiring you to pay in just cash only. Make sure to get copies of all work done and checks that were written for your records.
At the end of the day make sure you are happy with the work that was done. Keep your records and do not be afraid of asking questions. If they don’t have the answers do not let them in.
