When a hurricane, tornado or hail storm hits your neighborhood a good way to quickly identify out of state STORM CHASERS and FLY-BY-NIGHT Operations is to check for in-state license plates on the vehicle when they arrive to estimate your roof. It’s not uncommon for these traveling groups to roll into town quickly and grab up a local phone number or even assume the name and phone number of an established local company for an upfront lump sum to the local business owner. When the storm-related work dries up the STORM CHASERS move on to the next state with a natural disaster typically leaving the local company with a huge backlash of callbacks and warranty issues due to extremely poor workmanship. The result, often times, is that the local business is overwhelmed and is either forced to close their doors or simply ignore their responsibility for correcting the bad work. No matter how they try to deceive homeowners, STORM CHASERS can’t hide their out-of-state license plates. Use a local company and don’t be afraid to ask for a list of current references not just for the roofing company that you choose but also for the specific salesman of that company.
One roof is not like another. Having a QUALITY minded and reputable company install your roof can mean more than the quality of product installed where longevity is concerned. Many of the roofs that we replace in a normal year are due to poor installation of the prior roofing contractor. Choose a local company that you can trust. Ask for references of prior jobs completed in your area and remember that a warranty is only as good as the company that backs it up. Hope everyone is having a terrific Summer. ~ERIC~
