City of Zachary Urges Homeowners to Protect Themselves Against Fraud
Posted by zachary on August 15, 2016
CITY OF ZACHARY URGES HOMEOWNERS TO PROTECT THEMSELVES AGAINST FRAUDULENT CONTRACTORS AS THEY REBUILD FOLLOWING THE FLOODING.
In the days to come following the flooding, the City of Zachary Building Inspector, Scott Masterson, would like to stress the importance of using a licensed and bonded contractor in your home for repairs. Unfortunately, not everyone you will come across will be properly licensed, which can become a big risk to the homeowner. Most repairs after a flooding incident do not require a permit, however a hired contractor can determine this. Work performed exceeding $7500 requires the use of a residential contractor that is licensed by the State of Louisiana and the City of Zachary.
For your protection, the City of Zachary has compiled a list of licensed and bonded contractors that are eligible to perform work in our city. The list can be viewed on the Emergency section of the city website - www.cityofzachary.org. This list, along with other pertinent flood information can also be picked up at the City Hall Annex Cashier’s Office, located at 4650 Main Street. Should you need assistance or further information, please feel free to contact the Inspections Department at 225 654-6873. The Inspections office is located at 4650 Main Street and is available Monday – Thursday, 7 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
