🚩 Red Flags 🚩 : How to Spot a Renovation Scam Before It's Too Late!

Hey there, fellow homeowners! Let's talk about something serious today—renovation scams. It's unfortunate, but the truth is, cases of people getting scammed by shady renovation companies or contractors are on the rise. But fear not! We're here to help you navigate through the maze of potential scams and ensure you're working with a legit partner for your home renovation journey.

Here are some red flags to watch out for:

  1. Unrealistically Low Quotes: If a renovation company offers you a quote that seems too good to be true, it probably is. Lowball quotes often lead to hidden costs and subpar workmanship.

  2. Lack of Credentials: Legitimate renovation companies should be licensed, insured, and have a portfolio of past projects to showcase their expertise. If they can't provide these credentials, proceed with caution.

  3. Poor Communication: Difficulty reaching your contractor or delays in response can be indicators of unprofessionalism or lack of accountability.

  4. Pressure Tactics: Beware of contractors who pressure you into making quick decisions or paying large sums upfront. A reputable company will provide transparent timelines and payment schedules.

  5. No Written Contract: Always insist on a detailed written contract outlining the scope of work, materials, costs, and timelines. Verbal agreements leave room for misunderstandings and disputes.
