1. Take your time, do not be pressured. Ask questions before entering into a large home repair project. All district attorney and law enforcement agencies have fraud units. In the Jeffco DA’s office you can call 303-271-6931 or 303-271-6980 and talk to a person about what things you should consider before entering into a big home repair project.
2. Don’t pay large amounts up front, including a check from your homeowners insurance company. Legitimate contractors have credit with suppliers and do not need all the money to start. You may pay a small amount up front, but wait until the project is finished to pay the entire amount.
3. Beware of contractors who solicit business door to door. If someone comes to your door you can request information on their business and tell them you will get back to them.
