Be wary of contractors who:

The following is from the State's website.

Be wary of contractors who:

-Provide credentials or references that can’t be verified.
-Offer a special price only if you sign today or use other high-pressure
sales techniques.
-Accept only cash, require large deposits or the entire cost up front or
ask you to make the payment in their name.
-Do not provide a written contract or complete bid.
-Ask you to pick up the building permit. In most instances, the
contractor is required to take out the permits. Permits are your
protection and help ensure that work will meet local building codes.
-Offer exceptionally long warranties.
-Want to do most or all the work on weekends and after-hours.
-Give you an offer that sounds “too good to be true.”
