Residents all over the city are being warned about conmen pretending that they are carrying out double glazing and roofline jobs

Leading providers of double glazing services, DG Solutions, has commented on the recent news regarding the conmen posing as double glazing workers in Bath and North East Somerset.

Residents all over the city are being warned about conmen pretending that they are carrying out double glazing and roofline jobs for Bath and North East Somerset Council.

The individuals called at a number of houses recently, claiming to be checking the double glazing and roofing on behalf of the council. Neighbours are being asked to keep an eye out for the conmen, and if they do see any vehicles to report them to the police and alert their Neighbourhood Watch representative.

The local councils are now urging individuals in the area to be extra vigilant. A spokesperson stated: “The council does not cold call people in this way. Please do not allow unexpected callers claiming to be officials into your home without first checking they are genuine.” Councillor David Dixon said: “The caller may tell the householder that repairs are needed urgently and that structural damage may result if work is not done there and then. Householders can feel pressured into agreeing to have work done. The cost of the work frequently increases considerably from the original estimate and the work is often poorly done or incomplete.”

“Bath and North East Somerset Council’s advice is never to agree to work on the doorstep. If you think that work is needed to your property get quotes from two or three traders and compare them. Ask for references and check the trader out by speaking to their previous customers.” As double glazing and roofline specialists, DG Solutions were concerned upon hearing the news about conmen in Bath and North East Somerset. A spokesperson stated: “Accepting maintenance work after an unsolicited visit from an unknown workman can spell disaster for your home and your finances.

“These individuals who claim to be from the council are not legal workmen and could potentially cost homeowners thousands of pounds to have any damage put right. These conmen are likely to have limited to no experience and will undoubtedly not complete your double glazing or roofline installation or repairs to meet the standards of the Trading Standards Agency. If you do need work to be completed on your home, you should always contact a highly recommended industry specialist, who should give you a fair and honest quote.”
