Marlborough, MA -- April 30, 2013 -- This spring, landscaping, roofing and home improvement contractors will face a busy season, according to recent statistics from the Better Business Bureau serving Eastern Massachusetts, Maine, Rhode Island and Vermont.

Over the past month, consumers have gone to to search for trustworthy home improvement contractors. Landscape, roofing and home improvement contractors are in the top ten list of most inquired about types of businesses. The most inquired about businesses by roster view include roofers, landscapers, fencers, pavers and swimming pool contractors.

"It may be a very busy season for landscapers and home improvement contractors," explained Paula Fleming, Vice President of Communications and Marketing for the local BBB. "With summer just around the corner, homeowners are searching for reliable businesses ranging from paving contractors to swimming pool designers."

Consumers are encouraged to visit on specific suggestions on how to avoid home improvement scams, how to get the best value for their money, and to check out reliable contractors before starting work.

"With over 189,000 Accredited Business BBB reviews read in just the last month, it is easy to see consumers are coming to us first to check out a business," said Paula Fleming.
