Homeowners should be aware of home improvement scams
News from Lincoln Journal Star:

Due to weather-related damages recently, some people are out to make a buck with home-improvement promises. It is important to be on top of the types of repairs that need to be done and what the estimated costs should be. Make sure anyone offering to do repairs is legitimate. If there is any doubt in your mind, check with the Better Business Bureau and never give any money up front.

To protect you from home repair fraud the Nebraska Consumer Protection Division offers the following advice.

Beware of:

* Door-to-door repair people.

* Contractors using high-pressure sales tactics.

* Any contractor unwilling to provide an estimate or references.

* Unreasonable pressure to make the decision immediately.

* Demands for up-front payment for services.

Other suggestions:

* If you have repairs that need to be fixed always use a local well-established contractor.

* Ask for references so you can check whether previous customers were pleased with the contractors work.

* Get up to three bids for the work. If the bid seems too good to be true, it probably is.

* Check to see whether the contractor is registered in Nebraska by calling 402-595-3095.
