Storm chasers. What this can mean to you is that “wanna-be contractors” chase homeowners when the storms hit, expecting to get your business, or at least, your money. Be very cautious in these situations. Know your contractor: Check out the company, ask for referrals for the company and the installers, request identification from anyone who will be working in your home, review the contract for the work to be done, find out about the company’s insurance, guarantees and warranties, inspect work in the neighborhood where the contractor has completed work, and ask for receipts. You just cannot be too careful. “Don’t throw caution to the wind.” Call Windows Plus & Allied for your home improvement needs – 703-256-0600.
