Warning to Coventry residents about rogue roofer operating in the area

A WARNING has been issued to residents in Coventry about a rogue trader operating in the area.

It was sent out by the Wainbody, Westwood, Whoberley and Woodlands Neighbourhood Policing Team.

The advice follows an incident where the roof of a house was retiled but did not comply with building regulations.

People are warned ‘not to be conned by cowboys’ and to follow rules to protect themselves.

· Written quotations should be received before the job starts, and this quote MUST include a right to cancel

· No reputable tradesperson can start a big job at a moment’s notice

· The City Council need to be informed before a job like re-roofing can commence.

 

More advice is available on the Rogue Traders’ section of the West Midlands Police website here.

Further information is available from Coventry City Council here.
