YOUR TURN: Contractors

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

This week’s Your Turn segment goes to Deborah Kennedy.

Kennedy reacted on our Facebook page after watching the WAFB Investigators report about a flooded out homeowner who believes she was treated unfairly by an out-of-state contractor.

The Florida company was not licensed to do mold remediation here in Louisiana. Kennedy’s note provides additional warnings for people in the same situation. In her words:

You also need to ask to see a copy of their license and their proof of insurance and take photos of these. Call the state to verify their information. Some news outlets recommended doing this along with taking a photo of their vehicle and license plate. If they balk at any of this, tell them to hit the road. But, most important is give no money up front. 

That’s Deborah Kennedy’s turn. Now it’s your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, visit us on Facebook or send an email to yourturn@wafb.com.
