How to avoid one

Thursday, November 18, 2010 - 12:48pm

TYLER - Texas is one of few states that still doesn't require roofing contractors to be licensed. After storms hit East Texas a few weeks ago, leaving houses damaged, the Better Business Bureau says "roofing scams" have been popping up across the area.

Here's a list of things to watch for or avoid:

*out of town roofing companies

*paying with cash upfront before work begins

*no BBB credentials

*no references

*no license (if state requires it)

*no liability insurance

*no written contract

*signing a contract before hiring

*no markings on work truck

*door to door salesmen

When in doubt check with the National Roofing Contractors Association:
