Homeowners might want to take some notes. Hundreds of contractors across the state have admitted to a number of violations.
The Attorney General's Office says 211 contractors were forced to pay up Thursday. In some cases, investigators say they quote homeowners one price, but then drove up the costs.
Officers say others would take deposits an either never start or complete the work.
Twenty contractors in our area were included.
The AG's Office is reminding homeowners to shop around, check references, never pay the full price upfront and always get things in writing.
