Dear Members

Trading Standards are warning residents about rogue traders knocking doors offering unnecessary roofing work, in recent cases rogue traders have stated that birds are getting into the roof space and causing damage, a repair is not possible so the whole roof needs to be replaced costing £1000’s. If in doubt, don’t open the door or agree any work. If they won’t go away, dial 101 or 999 in an emergency. Report rogue traders to Trading Standards on 03454 040506.

Take time to consider your options and dont be pressured into making decisions.
Never pay upfront for goods or services
Is the trader knocking on your door a legitimate company? why haven't they given you a written quotation?

Please see attached leaflet for your information, hope you find it useful.

Stay Safe
