Window sellers need to be transparent in their marketing. Roofers need to stay on top of the law. And home siding installers shouldn’t sidle up to consumers with inappropriately high-pressure sales pitches. That’s the gist of a letter sent Tuesday by the Washington Attorney General’s Office to more than 30 home remodelers around the state.
The letter is a general notice to educate businesses about unlawful practices, and doesn’t necessarily mean that recipients are breaking the law. However, our office is investigating several remodelers and recently reached a settlement with Seattle-based Evans Glass.
“If your business boasts bogus discounts, pressures consumers to buy immediately or exaggerates endorsements, stop now – or hire an attorney because you’ll probably be hearing from us in short order,” Assistant Attorney General Jack Zurlini warned. See today's news release for more detail.
