RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - The Nevada State Contractors Board is warning people in western Nevada about four people working an unlicensed contractors who allegedly take money for work and then do not perform the work.
The board called the four travelers who drive from state to state taking money for roofing and paving projects or other contractor work and then perform little or no work. They operate under the name Reliable Roofing and Paving and are targeting homeowners, seniors and small businesses. They are not licensed or bonded in Nevada, the board said.
The two main suspects are George Delmaro, also known as Joe Delmaro, and David Stevens, the board said. Richard Stevens and Anthony Stevens are also suspects, the board said. They are believed to be driving a gray Dodge Durango with an Arizona temporary registration number of 9D58530 and a black Ford F-150 pickup with Oklahoma plates 791LEC.
“Travelers are unlicensed contractors who pass through neighborhoods trying to take advantage of as many people as possible in a short timeframe before moving on to the next community or state,” NSCB Executive Officer Margi A. Grein said in a statement. “We are asking all homeowners to be vigilant if individuals approach your home offering to perform home repair services. Warning signs to look for include requests for cash payments only, large down payments up front prior to work being performed, ‘too good to be true’ offers, and high pressured sales tactics.”
The board asks anyone with information about these four or other suspected unlicensed contracting activities call the Unlicensed Contractor Hotline at 775-850-7838. If available, include the unlicensed contractor’s name, business address, project location, phone number, and vehicle make, model, color and license plate number. When contracting for home repair and maintenance projects, always verify the contractor’s license number on NSCB’s website at www.nscb.nv.gov.
