Lt. Scott Tummond, head of investigations for the Levy Sheriff's Office, said the best advice is for residents to deal with local vendors. “So if a problem arises they can call them back to do it right,” he said.
His other tips:
• Make sure they are licensed and bonded.
• Make sure to get a contract that specifically spells out what they are going to do for what price.
• Beware of the fly-by-night unsolicited visits trying to sell you on work.
• Get a card with contact numbers on it and call them.
