WLOX Editorial: Storm repair warning

WLOX Editorial: Storm repair warning

We hear too often about people getting bilked by so called repair contractors. Unfortunately, it seems when people need the most help is when the unscrupulous appear; maybe offering a good deal. A good deal that turns out to be a bad deal. 

We are glad to see that these people get prosecuted. A Jackson contractor is headed to prison for taking payment, then not repairing the home. There are plenty honest, hardworking contractors here. 

We suggest that you do business with people who have been in business here for some time, and not someone who swoops in to make a quick dollar when storms roll through.That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
