Recently we have seen a drastic increase in permit requests for home improvement projects from companies that are engaging in door-to-door solicitation for their services. Several companies have been travelling throughout the township knocking on doors and making sales pitches to our residents to engage them for various projects. Some of these companies have accumulated numerous less than favorable reviews of their services. We are encouraging all of our residents to perform their due diligence prior to signing anything with any contractor they encounter. Please take a few minutes to research the company you are signing with and make sure they are reputable to avoid potential problems with the services they are offering.
