Some may go door-to-door, falsely claiming they can get you a new roof for your deductible. Others may misrepresent themselves, claiming to be from a legitimate company when they are not.

Before signing any documents, be sure to verify the contractor's references and look up their place of business. Request a detailed proposal before making any decisions.
