The National Remodeling Foundation (NRF) offers tips to the many homeowners seeking help
DES PLAINES, Ill., Feb. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As many East Coast shore residents who faced down Sandy in October were still reeling from the costs of home repair, a major blizzard struck the Northeast region two weeks ago, paralyzing the area and causing more difficulty for already struggling homeowners. They've seen their share of adjusters and price-gouging contractors coming at them from all over the country. The National Remodeling Foundation (NRF) is offering tips for these frustrated homeowners who need guidance navigating the home repair and insurance process.
"Some companies took advantage of people and overcharged the amount it would cost for a job," says John Quaregna, owner of Jay-Cue Construction Co., Inc., in North Bergen, N.J., vice president, NRF, and a New Jersey shore homeowner. "Homeowners paid up front believing they would get money back from their insurance company only to learn that they wouldn't be receiving enough to cover the costs of repairs as well as their home's contents."
There are still 42,000 homeless families, Quaregna says, who are staying in hotels or with family or friends. One way to help them get back into their homes is to make sure they get to the right professionals. Let property owners know they should:
