Message from Trading Standards Officer, Notts County Council:
Cold Callers Active In Nottinghamshire - We have had reports of two men going door to door advising people of issues with their roofs and offering to fix them. When they are on the roof, they find other problems and the costs escalate.
Trading Standards never recommend employing a trader based on a cold call.
If you are considering having work carried out on your property or garden make sure that you get three quotes from reputable traders. To find local traders who have been approved by Nottinghamshire County Council Trading Standards please visit www.checkatrade.com
