Beware Roofing Scams

Residents are being warned to be wary of cold callers or leaflets offering to do work on roofs after the recent storms.

Oxfordshire County Council’s trading standards team believes it is a perfect opportunity for rogue traders to take advantage of residents who have a leaking roof or broken tile.

Many traders will be booked up, so the advice is to be wary of traders who can arrive to start the work the following day and push for a quick agreement to use them.

Residents with concerns about cold calling or potential scams can contact the Citizens Advice National Consumer Service on 0800 144 8848 or visit
