During the July 1 microburst storm many homes on Catawba and throughout Danbury township and Marblehead were damaged.
Blue plastic on roofs is a common sight and contractor signs compete with political yard signs in yard after yard.
Contractors have completed, are in the process of completing, or have scheduled completion of the repairs on many damaged roofs. However, there have been reports of complaints that work is not being completed as agreed upon, and one incident where money has been paid and work has not been completed. These issues are normally civil issues, best resolved between homeowner and contractor.
Detective Mark Meisler of Danbury Township advises that homeowners “check the fine print” before signing contracts, and to do the same if a contract has already been signed. Meisler advises that it can be helpful to do some research on the internet or with the Better Business Bureau if you are unfamiliar with a company. Danbury Township and other law enforcement agencies also may have information on complaints that have been filed against a particular company or contractor.
Chief Bob Rogers of Catawba Island Township agreed that there have been few complaints, but that homeowners can file reports with the police department to document any problems and/or to check to see if any complaints have been filed locally.
