The Department of Consumer Protection (DCP) is warning area residents that they have received reports about Roman Szewczak, who also operates under the business name Roman Enterprises, LLC, who is not registered or licensed but is offering services as a contractor.

Szewczak is based in Newington, but the DCP has received reports that he has been soliciting customers and performing “incomplete or shoddy work in the West Hartford area.”

“Offering services that you’re not credentialed to perform is a serious offense,” Consumer Protection Commissioner Michelle H. Seagull said in a news release. “Consumers deserve to work with contractors who play by the rules, and complete the work they commit to in their contracts. We hope that any consumers who have information about this contractor that haven’t already spoken with us will share it with the agency.”

Anyone who has dealt with Szewczak is asked to contact DCP and file a complaint by emailing [email protected], or through the website https://ct.gov/dcp/complaint.

DCP has also offered the following advice for anyone looking to engage a contractor to work on their home:

  • Get multiple quotes, and remember, the cheapest is not always best;
  • Don’t do businesses with anyone who asks that you pay the entire cost up front;
  • Check multiple references from those who have had work done on their homes that’s similar to the work you’re planning;
  • Verify any contractor you hire the proper credentials for the work they’re completing by visiting https://elicense.ct.gov;
  • Ensure that you have a written, signed contract; and
  • Ask any questions you have before signing the contract yourself

More information can be found on the DCP’s website.
