Storms are more common now that we’re entering the later part of the year, but as far as your finances are concerned, it’s not the storm itself that you should be worrying about. It’s what follows on its heels: a storm chaser. Ritco, Inc. discusses how to identify and avoid storm chasers.
Identifying Storm Chasers
Storm chasers are not local roofers, and while they may seem to offer the same kind of roof storm repair as others, they will only do the bare minimum work. This work is so sloppy that you’d need to repair or even replace it completely in two years or less. The easiest way to identify storm chasers is that they can’t show a proper roofing license and have no insurance.
Since storm chasers follow the trail of storms, they also have no local offices and usually have P.O. boxes and hotel addresses. These scammers also tend to demand up-front cash or deposit, and are uncharacteristically aggressive in selling their services.
Avoiding Storm Chasers
Avoid falling for storm chaser traps by being aware. Since you now know the signs the roofer is a storm chaser, it’s time you ask the important questions. Perhaps the “safest” question to ask is they have references for their residential and commercial roofing work. If they can’t provide these, then you’re talking to a storm chaser.
