A bill in the Wyoming legislature is currently attempting to strengthen laws in the area in order to prevent roofing scams.
After hailstorms struck the area last summer, a number of roofing scams came about. One popular scam that occurs after storms is when a fraudulent contractor approaches a homeowner in order to repair their roof and asks for money to purchase materials, but leaves town with the money before any work can be done.
The new law will put steps into place in order to prevent false roofing companies from taking advantage of residents. The new law will require roofers to reveal if they are from out of state, require roofers to show their license or registration number and provide a detailed description of the damage and where it is located. The bill will also allow the resident to cancel the roofing contract within the first five business days that it is signed.
If you or a loved one is in need of roof repair after a storm, timing is very important because further damage could occur to the home if a roof is not fixed quickly. Contact the Austin roof leak experts of AAA Mustang Roofing today by calling 512-650-9866 today.
