If a contractor knocks on your door and is offering to repair or improve your driveway, take it with a grain of salt.
It could be a scam, and signs of a sketchy offer include the salesperson requiring you to pay a substantial down payment before providing any services, pressuring you to “act now or lose out on a limited time offer”, and the price sounding too good to be true.
Creating a formal contract with clear expectations of the work to be done and the timeframe that work has to be completed in, and asking for their direct seller’s license number are ways of protecting yourself from getting conned.
Door-to-door salespersons are required to be licensed under The Direct Sellers Act.
