Beware Atlantic County, NJ. Now that Hurricane Irene has passed and if you have some damage that needs to be repaired and a contractor shows up offering to do the job for a cheap price don’t just jump at that offer with enthusiasm without being wary of whether or not this contractor is a legitmate contractor.
Ask for references, call your insurance company, don’t sign anything and whatever you do don’t give them any money!
Be sure to use reputable contractors that you have worked with in the past or come highly recommended from friends, family, neighbors or anyone you trust. If you don’t have a membership at Angie’s List, this may be a good time to consider such a membership. Angie’s List doesn’t accept ads from any vendors. It is run by the reviews of individual members on the site. They tell the truth – they tell it all and hold nothing back.
Membership does have it’s Privileges.
