Contractors will be offering their services as people start to rebuild after the fires, but it is important to make sure anyone you choose to work with is licensed with the Oregon Construction Contractors Board.
There are a number of scammers who have been targeting vulnerable people affected by the wildfires, which is why it is important to know the warning signs and tips on how to protect yourself.
Warning signs include:
- Offering a very discounted rate
- “Limited time offer” due to leftover materials
- Using pressure style tactics and going door to door
The most important thing you can do is verify the license of any Oregon contractor at the designated website.
