(WOIO) - It's the season for spring cleaning and sprucing up your house. But it's also the time for springtime scams! With all the storms that will likely come our way, there's no doubt someone will knock on your door offering to fix any damage. Here are the red flags you need to keep in your tool box.
"We still have a window up there that`s broken," said Brian Majors. "Basically our fence is gone."
Last year, a storm ripped up his house, so he hired a contractor to fix it. But after two months, his house was still a mess.
"We were told it would take 10 to 12 days," he says.
There is no end to Ohioans who are taken by bad contractors. The top springtime scams include things like roofing, tree trimming, and driveway sealing. You should watch out for people who come knocking on your door and want you to say "yes" in a hurry.
