(DUFFERIN COUNTY, ON) - Dufferin OPP are warning residences to be aware of Paving Scam that is coming to police attention within Dufferin County.
A paving company identified as Q-Line Paving has been connected to numerous complaints to police about paving scams. Dufferin OPP had several calls about a paving company that goes by the name Q-line. They are offering low cost paving as they have a "surplus" of asphalt from roadwork. They are giving estimates and then completing the jobs without paperwork or providing written quotes. Q-line then paves more than the agreed area and charges substantially more than the quote.
While the work was done properly, the homeowner had agreed upon price was $10,500 but was later charged $16,000 after the job was done.
Police remind citizens that they should follow a few simple steps when getting home renovations
