The BBB urges homeowners in 64 Eastern and Central Kentucky counties to call its Lexington office to check out contractors before hiring them.
The agency says it can provide a list of BBB members who can do the work.
A spokesman said if contractors won't put their plan in writing, consider that to be a red flag and shop for someone else.
To reach the BBB, call (859) 259-1008 or toll-free in Kentucky, 1-800-866-6668, or log on to www.ky.bbb.org
