e live and work exclusively in the great State of New Jersey. We witnessed the fury of Hurricane Sandy when it came ashore in 2012 and experienced many of the storm-related issues as you and
millions more in our region.
Now, in January 2016, we witnessed another epic weather event that paralyzed multiple states on the East Coast. New Jersey and other states were under a declared State of Emergency as winter
storm Jonas pounded the region with high winds, storm surge flooding, and significant snowfall.
If you have suffered damage to your property from these events, or wish to learn about preparedness before the next event occurs, then we offer this page of advice.
As you prepare to contact contractors for repair estimates, it is important to follow the advice from state agencies, consumer groups, and the media. They know from past
experience that these types of disasters can bring out dishonest contractors looking to capitalize on your hardship and desperation.
Your best defense against a predatory contractor is knowledge. Learn about the tell-tale signs of a contractor scam, contractor laws, and your
consumer rights before you invite the first contractor into your home.
