Off just because it's customer appreciation day with my wife actually the most dangerous words are I saw this on interest Haas all be here quite often in the XP who speaks in the Selkirk location as well pay a lot of thank you for bringing attention to this kind of timely and important subject matter something that's near and dear to my heart that is protecting. Homeowners is one of our missions here on hammered and radio actually to protect homeowners from getting ripped off by. Having them learn how to properly shop for home improvements and protect themselves from scams we you are the gold standard public Brinkley and you know my dad's a senior citizen and he lives in Kaiser town and you know fight a dollar her talents are people within a pick up truck a letter and some shingles in the back literally driving around his senior saying hey. There's something wrong with your roof there's something wrong with your citing for a harder bucks cash I'll fix it right now right. Now's the time of the year for seniors in the elderly to be really. I'm guard for unscrupulous contractors so called contractors. A little try and basically Scania for cash and not do the job. And basically leave you without the worked on in with outline money. I always still listeners and homeowners that. You know it's really never the case that this guy is indeed following in if someone makes it sound like there's a panic that needs something he's the urgently take care of I would. Use that as a cause for for alarm. And you know stop and think and say well let me talk to my family first. Absolutely I mean it as you're well aware any work with 500 dollars or more requires a contract and I York's state. Everyone at any kind of work the get go on their should be written contract explaining exactly what work is going to be gone. What the costs are and we encourage people to your use your credit card or check. Only use cash as a last resort and always he's a small percentage up front I can make sure that you're paying for the work in the work its done. You know I. I'm not an advocate for more government control but I think this is a piece subject that's right. Four for a promoting rip off because there's a big black market. Industry. Four home improvements because. Of the a tremendous costs for properly insuring. A contractor in our state. In clusters loopholes to. We're sole proprietors can operate without compensation insurance. And have minimal coverages in that has driven a lot of people you know underground if you will to to do this. Trade. You know kind of in the dark of night and that would be legitimate. And it's really hard for for you on this business men and women choose to do business in New York State right 'cause of the regulation. And the playing field is not leveled. For those we column drive by contrast right people get a ladder and some equipment in the back of their truck where you're doing the right thing you're playing by the rules. You're providing a great service and added. Reasonable costs for consumers. Yet these individuals we column drive byes you know especially if there's a storm. You know there's flooding people are panicked they they can't make a decision. Under a lot of stress in your true watering your basement or thinking oh my guess I have to fix this right now. Right so I always tell people to make sure contractors properly insured and again as you mentioned to level the playing field. It's important that you deal with someone who has not only liability but compensation insurance. It soap writers accent does not need count. Benefit if two soap writers come together guess what cap is needed and often the case you'll see that happen where there's no crap on the on the project. Natalie is that. Possibly. A risk four year ownership of beer moment is our as a liability side but at the media in May be a candidate for for rip off that way too. Cokie measure of someone gets hurt on it kind of job at your home in their account doesn't exist. On that's why it's incredibly important for consumers to be aware. And ask questions and never hurts and anyway she performed ask questions. Even if a contractor comes in has taken a seat contract may see your insurance right who insurers you. He never write as a homeowner to be named is additionally insured are not panic kind of policy to which is kind of an extra layer of protection that you could be afforded. To minimize your risk as homeowners so those are things that have nothing to do with actually getting ripped off but have a lot to do with shopping smartly for home improvements. That's correct and no more eat homework that you do is a consumer the better our product you're going to get from a contractor in the better job you're going to get and the most bang for your rock you're going to get a good product now. We desperately need reform in our state for workers' compensation insurance it's happening in some areas it spurs some movement to lower their rates but. Until the scaffold lies is gone. Was gonna continue to have issues. Of well over regulation. When it comes to going over expense when it comes to compensation insurance the scaffold lock everybody knows that great in the since the show. Is a lot it's on our books it's been here pretty. Workers' compensation. And it says that if a worker is injured on it works right. From a fall of greater than three feet the contractors liable for the full extent of the injury regardless. For the reason of the fall was no arguable defense now how is an American that there's no arguable defense. It's outrageous where else can you go in this country walk into a court of law and say no matter what the facts are no matter what the data says. You're wrong in your reliable. And this is the whole you know direction I think that our discussions should ghosts that Iran that is this is what's prompted contractors to ago. In in in in the black market because. You know how can you how can you afford I mean Ike and value our premium last year it was ridiculous. Our compensation premium was over a 140000. And now it's Regis yeah. So and you know god forbid you use your comp insurer because that guess what happens your rates go up. I even more yeah that's what's unfortunate New York State over regulation government should get out of the way. Absolutely positively ideally we should be creating a culture where you can survive and thrive and stay in New York State and flourishing in that state. But unfortunately drives people underground or out of state now tell me as your county comptroller what's what's your area. A connection and concern for this important topic. Well what one of the things is we have a large bully pulpit with our office. We can reach out to state legislate were county legislature or present them information and say well we're crushing businesses. By being over regulated. And overtaxed Erie county in New York State. Mean how many people listening hand to see their children or grandchildren and hip hop on a plane to see their families it's so unfortunate but. Legitimate businesses like cue it's so hard to succeed and thrive with over regulation over cash. So you know I've been waving the flag for almost thirty years now on this issue. The scaffold up from barely. It seems to and I've had Robin Sherman you're around and we've talked at length about. You know possibility of reform it doesn't seem ever go anywhere and have always told that the the strength of the lobby in in the state for trial attorneys that's what's keeping on the book. Oh absolutely is money talks in Albany and Washington unfortunately. No I would you strongly encourage people in a part of the people get out there and vote. You know when when you don't vote then you're basically stuck with with a government that. That is in officer people who did not vote force I strongly encourage people involved in the and the public process call your state representatives. Let them know how you feel. If more people were involved in that process that I think things can change. You know what though I can't say I'm disappointed and and our listeners ship in our. In that in this regard because nobody seems to every really do that how I wish people did do that because it might make a difference while I was talking Magellan is a member of a school board in Cheektowaga. And out of roughly 121000 registered voters in this specific district for the last school board election 250 people showed up about. 250. People. I don't know why that we don't think our vote matters in these regards but that's a fact well my my dad. Was my whole family. Was born reason Ukrainian team the United States of America and they lived in a country were they did not even have. The right to vote. And you we have that beautiful freedom here we don't exercise themselves. The more participation in the process the better government people yet.

And fortieth every time good morning from them expertise you're listening number ten radio here on WB NM broadcasting descended in point from reach store north at 51 Amber's street.

After all we packed everything we can in the ten weeks of summer isn't that correct hey watch hammer time TV tomorrow morning on channel two. At 1030. See fell up install a mailbox. With his brother's help and seen nick do a roof inspection. Would this drone yeah. That's tomorrow's episode. At 1030. On channel two it's hammer time TV I'm here with step by my hi Lou he's the Erie county comptroller. And that we're talking about home improvement schemes and the whole home improvement industry. And how it's not really regulated in any way how anybody could enter our industry with just a truck and an attitude that they think they can be good contractor. And sometimes that will make a difference. But sometimes it leads people into napping properly capitalize in their four leads him into the life of crime and ripping people off along the way. I happen to think and I am not an advocate for. Government control. I think less is more when it comes to government but this is an area staff and where. There really isn't any platform at all for for contractors and possibly licensing structure might be in order here. And as it licensing in many respects mean the a good idea to weed out the bad apples. I Dominic you're the gold standard when it comes a contract you have insurance via copy of contracts. You look your customers know exactly what you're doing when it comes to the services you provide. But unfortunately because there is no formal licensing when it comes to this some with a cell phone instant tar and some shingles. It happened a truck and say hey I'm the contractor let me do work in your house. That's right appreciate this opportunity to be V ended to really let seniors know especially after about scams of warmer weather when it comes to the drive byes we call them. People are truck you know look at a license plates keep their from out of state make sure their insured make sure you. Have a contract. You know and I find myself doing an ant night he really. Have to stop myself sometimes when when this happens to me defending my pricing. When people say your price was higher. And in I think of course who enemies competitive as we can right. But when my price is higher in you really stop and think watney but guess what I guess why is because we have the right and assurances. Insurance has ended a high quality of work you get when you pay for specially when it comes to contract and and that's why seniors in the elderly need to be really careful about. Giving individuals catch someone who solicit you either on the phone or pulls up in your driveway please do not RA. Which your money in that respect always pay with a credit card or check. In New York State anything more than 500 dollars requires a contract through you can cancel my contract and three business days as well. Now at least we have those. That framework in place so that there are guidelines and you can find these at the I believe you can friends on line that that you New York State got dot gov or the attorney general's website. Where the standards are that are published but. We can run through them here real quick on the air. As staff France had a contract must be in writing a must be in plain English in must have reasonable expectations this first time starting in completion. It must bear resemblance to the status of the work as far as the payment structure. It must have the three Dave Wright to rescind. A clause and it. And I must also state that the contractor. Has a right to lean your house if you don't pay him. And also that the monies that you pay him will go into eight escrow account. Which is also as part of a state law. Even something as simple as. A senior and elderly individual asking what's your address which a business address. Is more than likely if this so called scam contractor has a cell phone and pick up truck. They're not reputable so folks really need to be aware especially now with warmer weather rolling around but to be aware of that. Do you know what the average lifespan for contractors. In New York State now take a yes. Five years close sovereign wow yeah. It's tough to do business in New York State unfortunately there.
