The recent severe, overnight storms mean homeowners should be reminded of possible scams.
Hail damage to property increases the potential for businesses or individuals associated with roofing and other contracting work to commence door to door marketing of their services.
The City of Topeka wants to remind residents to confirm that anyone soliciting in their neighborhood has obtained the proper licensing to perform such activity.
Valid solicitors should have in their possession an official license with a City seal issued by the City Clerk’s office. If homeowners do choose to utilize any contracting services, they should verify that the contractors or roofers are also licensed by Development Services.
