After all the storms in the Dallas area this spring and summer, homeowners are faced with expensive roof repairs and roof replacements. At the Better Business Bureau serving Dallas and Northeast Texas, inquiries from consumers asking about roofing contractors are up 150% compared to last year at this time.
Cynthia Vega of WFAA-TV, Ch. 8, in Dallas reports that the BBB is warning to check out roofers. "Scammers are at work in our area, looking to take your money without ever doing the work," she says.
