After any major storm, the person knocking on your door may be an employee of a legitimate roofing company or a “roofing scammer”. These types of scammers often travel around an area, after it has experienced an unusually large storm, looking for homeowners to exploit. If you are approached with an offer for post-storm roof repair make sure to do your own research and contact the roofing company yourself. Ask to see proof of insurance and check the roofer's license status with the Morton Grove building department at 847 663-3040.
Do your due diligence. The Village of Morton Grove requires all “door-to-door” solicitors to have a permit. When in doubt, DO NOT allow a solicitor inside your home and call 911 so the police department can verify people are soliciting legally.
