Home Repair Scams:

We would like to remind our residents to be cautious when approached by individuals for unsolicited home and driveway repairs.  Though not common, we have had problems in the past with transient type con artists who present themselves as home repair contractors.  These individuals will often present an offer to the homeowner to conduct repairs at a deeply discounted rate because of other work they are conducting in the area.  Please don't hesitate to ask the individual for their Tinicum Township Soliciting Permit and their Pennsylvania Home Improvement Contractor #.  Registered contractors should have this information.  If you are uncertain about the person(s) please contact us at the Police Department before you conduct any transactions.  We will be happy to respond and help you determine the legitimacy of the individual.
