Better Business Bureau Offers Advice on Choosing Contractors for Flood Damage

Bowling Green, KY – Consumer protection specialists say its very important to check out companies before you hire them to take care of damage caused by storms or flooding. The Better Business Bureau says rip-off artists frequently head to storm-damaged areas and
overcharge, perform sub-par work, or leave town after receiving payment for work they haven't completed. The BBB recommends working only with licensed and insured contractors and to resist hiring a contractor who wants to be paid for the entire repair job up front. The Better Business Bureau can also provide information about whether complaints have been filed against a particular contractor.
