  • Being asked to pay for a job in its entirety upfront and in cash

  • Is not visible online or doesn't have an actual business address

  • Offers a discount to find other customers

  • Prices are low and/or too-good-to-be-true

  • Pressure to act immediately to get a special offer or discount

  • Says repairs must be done immediately because you are in danger or your safety is at risk

  • Tries to get you to sign contracts without reading them or sign blank pages

  • Knocks on your door unsolicited

  • Offers free materials

  • Asks to come into your home

  • Talks fast to try to confuse you
