BEWARE: Top Contractor Scams
“Well, he seemed legit” is what many homeowners end up saying after realizing they’re out the $1,500 they handed over “for materials” and stuck with a job barely done.
While most contractors are honest, hardworking professionals, a few bad apples can spoil it for everyone. Here are five ways to identify if a contractor could be scamming you, and how to protect yourself:
Scam 1: I’ll Need the Money Up Front
Scam 2: Take My Word For It
Scam 3: I Don’t Need to Pull a Permit
Scam 4: We Ran Into Unforeseen Problems
Scam 5: I’ve Got Extra Materials I Can Sell You Cheap

Harbor Freight Recalls Chainsaw
Do you have plans to get outside to get some garden maintenance done this weekend? Are you looking forward to hearing the rattle of the chainsaw or the subtle bog of the engine as the blades meet the overgrowth?
The Consumer Product Safety commission states that Harbor Freight has recalled 2 of their electric chainsaws, model numbers 67255 and 61592, due to a serious injury hazard.
Springtime Power Washing
If you want to give your home more curb appeal, one great way to start is by giving the exterior a thorough cleaning. An exterior that sparkles in the sun can make a world of difference. But if you’re about to reach for a pressure washer, stop right there. Not all surfaces can handle the intense spray of a pressure washer; some, like brick, can be damaged by the wrong tools. Here you’ll find out which method is best for your home, along with more know-how you’ll need to get the job done right.
You’ll learn how to prepare to pressure wash – Soap? Which nozzle? – pressure washing safety, and how to pressure wash your house. Learn more here!
As you know, The Carey Brothers like to stay busy. In addition to construction projects, this national radio show, and a TV special which is running on KRON 4 TV in the Bay Area as well as on our YouTube Channel … we’ve got a podcast called CareyBrosPros.
It is for our fellow professionals in the construction industry. Our latest edition features a chat with Jeff Kenkelen of Air King in which we talk about the impact of good indoor air quality.
5 Easy Steps to Installing a Flagpole
Armed Forces Day was created in 1949 as a way to show appreciation to our military men and women. Armed Forces Day is celebrated every year on the third Saturday of May, and in honor of this holiday of recognition, the On The House Team has crafted a flagpole installation guide. Because there is no better way to display your gratitude for our Armed Forces than proudly hoisting Ol’ Glory in your front yard.
