As the better weather approaches, reports are being received throughout Lancashire of roofers cold calling offering to carry out repair work where no repair work is necessary or work is charged for that has not been carried out. Often these are jobs that you cannot do yourself and cannot check they have been carried out correctly or needed to be done in the first place. Traders often panic the householder into having work carried out.
Trading Standards advice is to always say no to cold callers. The Safetrader scheme can help you find a trader in your area, contact 0303 333 1111 or go to www.safetrader.org.uk
