Don’t fall prey to April Fools Day roofing scams

Don Schmidt Roofing warns homeowners to avoid falling for a roofer’s too good to be true offer and becoming an April fool’s prank. The fly by night roofing scamming contractor will take a homeowner’s hard-earned money and leave without completing a roofing job or even buying the shingles


Roofing scams are expected to increase in April and May, before the hot Florida summer. Many of these unlicensed roofing companies will canvas an entire neighborhood following a large rainstorm. They pitch a limited time special offer and promise to do repairs that either never get done or cause real damage to a homeowner’s roof.


We caution homeowners to do their homework and not fall for high pressure sales tactics. Remember, if a deal sound too good to be true… it probably is


Here are some consumer tips to avoid roofing scams:


Never allow an uninvited contractor to inspect your roof or to contact your insurance company directly.


Say no to contractors requesting an immediate decision.
