Home improvement scams

Huron County Sheriff’s Office via Facebook: Every year Huron County Sheriff's Office gets reports of possible home improvement scams. If someone comes to your house to black top your driveway or fix your roof make sure that this is work that you requested and want done. Always get ID from your contractor, noting the license plate number on the vehicles and a written estimate of what is to be done. Avoid paying any money up front, get a receipt for work done, and if the price seems too good to be true then it probably is.
