The Homeowner’s Helper Offering New Free Home Improvement Fraud Prevention Service

FORT WAYNE— The Homeowner’s Helper, a free home improvement referral service based in Fort Wayne, is offering a public service to help prevent homeowners from getting scammed by unscrupulous home repair providers—not only in the aftermath of recent storms, but anytime.

Homeowners needing repair work can call The Homeowner’s Helper Home Improvement Fraud Prevention Service at (260) 676-2032 to ask questions about how to find and check out the right contractor for storm repair and any other home improvement jobs.

The Homeowner’s Helper owner and President Tony Messuri said that the free Fraud Prevention Service can help prevent homeowners from being taken advantage of by unethical contractors that come out in droves when homeowners are in urgent need of home repairs—which commonly occurs after severe weather. Summer is also a prime time for home improvement scams, according to the Better Business Bureau.

“We offer some easy-to-follow guidelines on how to find and verify quality, scrupulous, reputable contractors for any home improvement and storm repair project, large or small,” Messuri said.
