A warning to homeowners about home repair after a storm


KIMT News 3-With spring upon us, the threat of severe and damaging weather can cause homeowners to shell out some money for repairs.

But the Department of Public Safety is warning folks to make sure they know who is coming over to do repairs.

Sometimes the wrong person coming over can leave you in a sticky and costly situation.

Authorities say it’s always good to do your research.

“Many times a hail storm will come through and if there’s a lot of roofing that needs to be completed, it’s like an invitation to some of these scam artists,” says Lt. Dan Schaffer with the Iowa State Patrol.

He says the best thing to do is double-check with the Better Business Bureau to make sure the company is reputable before hiring them and that if an offer sounds too good to be true, it most likely is.
