Rogue roofers cold-calling in Stapleford

Alert message sent 06/11/2018 16:03:00

Information sent on behalf of Local Authority

We have had reports of males in the Stapleford area, going door to door offering to carry out roofing work.  The cold callers have made bogus claims about having worked on neighbouring properties and being able to offer significant discounts.


Trading Standards strongly advise against buying anything from a ‘cold caller’ because you risk overpaying for what ultimately turns out to be shoddy goods or substandard services.


If you are considering having work carried out on your property or garden make sure that you get three quotes from reputable traders.  To find local traders who have been audited and approved by Nottinghamshire County Council Trading Standards please visit


To report a cold caller, or for advice on your consumer rights, please contact the Citizens Advice Consumer Service on 03454 04 05 06.
