The home improvement industry has come a long way since the days depicted in the movie Tin Men. Back in the 1960s the industry was rife with deceptive, high pressure sales tactics. From the phony trust building $5 bill drop to the Life Magazine before and after photo scam, aluminum siding salesmen (Tin Men) used deception to sell their wares.
A lot has changed since then. Consumer protection legislation was passed as a result of federal investigations that cracked down on the home imrovment industry’s use of deceptive practices. Consumers, too, have become much more sophisticated buyers since then. Armed with information made availabe online, people are in better negotiating positions than ever before.
