Beware of Rogue Traders
Police Scotland are advising householders to be cautious when being "doorstepped" by businesses looking to clean and repair roofs and guttering.
They recommend using established and accredited companies as well as obtaining a few quotes and fixing on an agreed price beforehand.
All reputable traders will be willing to provide customers with a copy of their terms and conditions before any work is undertaken.
