A significant number of these contractors have flocked to NJ from out of state to cash in on the devastation caused by the storm. They are easy to identify: just look for the trucks with the magnetic logo listing a NJ Home Improvement License Contractor Number but with out-of-state license plates.
- Taking project deposits and performing no work at all
- Grossly overcharging for standard materials and repair work
- Delivering repair work that is insufficent to address the damage
- Performing work of questionable quality
This victimization can be compounded when the homeowner has no recourse against the "contractor" because they have no local business operation (and typically are not even a registered business at all) and so cannot be located and held accountable to the NJ State fraud authorities.

Joe Wehner & Sons Contracting, LLC has been a fixture at the shore for years. Growing up in Brick, Joe spent his summers on the beaches of Monmouth and Ocean Counties – and has been working diligently to help his friends and family rebuild their storm ravaged homes.
