Warning to Homeowners to Engage Recommended Roofers
29th June 2015
Earlier this week a couple of fraudsters posing as trustworthy roofing contractors were jailed for a total of 13 years for what the QC described as, "Deliberately, unscrupulously and ruthlessly preying on the elderly and vulnerable."
The father and son team from Acocks Green in Birmingham took £52,000 from an elderly Alzheimer's sufferer in a roofing scam, taking cash from three bank accounts while they pretended to befriend her.
The sickening truth of such stories prompts us to again reiterate the importance of receiving quotations and works for critical roofing projects, whether they may be emergency repairs or complete flat roof replacement from genuine, registered and recommended tradesmen.
Here at Permaroof UK, we hold a register of UK-wide roofing tradesmen that are trained, vetted and credit-checked by us to ensure we only pass on details of your projects to trustworthy contractors, offering a service that is free to homeowners and offers them the peace of mind that they are engaging tradesmen they can rely on to do a quality job in a professional manner.
When tradesmen, whether they are roofing professionals, electricians, plumbers or general builders are engaged, try to obtain at least three quotes to compare and do not be afraid to ask to see evidence of their professional qualifications, insurance or testimonials. Genuine, reliable and registered tradesmen will be only too happy to comply!
