To avoid scams like the one mentioned in this article, be sure to use a

Diamond Certified company.

As the weather warms up in the Bay Area, you can expect to see an increase in door-to-door home improvement scams. According to the Contractors State License Board, fraudulent home repair workers (often from out of town) peddle phony roof repairs, driveway asphalting, or tree trimming/landscaping services.

A common landscaping scam involves a roving crew that completes a beautiful garden at one of the homes in a neighborhood. The neighbors are so impressed that they pay cash deposits for jobs scheduled in a few weeks’ time, and the fraudulent operators leave town with the money without completing the work. Be wary if any of these transient solicitors claim to have leftover materials, seem reluctant to sign a written contract, demand payment in cash, drive brand-new trucks with out-of-state license plates, or only use a toll-free number as a contact. You can report suspicious operators to www.cslb.ca.gov.
