BBB Warns Of Roofing Scam

INDIANA  — The Better Business Bureau is warning you of a roofing scam. You receive a call or a person shows up at your door claiming to represent a roofing company with a generic name, like “Indiana Roofing” or “Indiana Construction,” and offer a free inspection, but then actually tear shingles off your roof or show you a photo of someone else’s roof.

So how do you avoid roofing scams? A big red flag is a “contractor” saying they “just happened to be in the area.” The BBB says have your insurance company inspect your roof, and research roofing companies before you hire.
