Office of Consumer Protection Advises Homeowners about Post-Storm Home Repairs

The Montgomery County Office of Consumer Protection (OCP) warns County residents to be cautious when hiring contractors to repair damage caused by the recent severe storm that tore through the area. Do your homework before signing a contract for any home repair, improvement or tree service work.

OCP Director Eric Friedman said, “While we understand the urgency to have repairs done as quickly as possible, homeowners need to proceed with caution before signing any contracts by verifying that the contractor is properly licensed and experienced.”

Read the advice to homeowners that is good information to keep in mind anytime.

OCP investigates thousands of complaints each year involving automotive sales and repairs, new home purchases, home improvements, credit issues, retail sales, internet services and most other consumer transactions. The office provides pre-purchase information to consumers, as well as speakers to the community on consumer issues.
