Police: hail storm brings out roofing solicitors

Posted: Updated:
Mount Vernon -

Mount Vernon police said the department has received an uptick of complaints with fears about potential scams surrounding door-to-door roofing contractors.

The department said it is in response to a recent hail storm but that complaints say contractors are inspecting roof damage from the storm and notifying homeowners. According to police, legitimate contractors will not get on a roof of a home before speaking to the owner first.

They are also reminding residents that if someone comes to a home, they should be able to show a valid permit issued by the city to conduct door-to-door sales.
