Storm chasers are one of the most publicized roofing scammers, yet many homeowners still fall victim to their tricks. They take advantage of homeowners suffering from storm damage and do questionable work that often results in poor performance and more costs.
Goodrich Roofing discusses the dangers of hiring a storm chaser and why you should never work with them.
How Storm Chasers Work
These transient roofers know exactly how insurance companies work in terms of storm and hail damage. They scam homeowners by basing their repairs on the minimum amount of square footage they’ll need to do to get coverage from your insurance company.
Since they do the bare minimum to replace or repair your roof, they don’t actually address any problems. In fact, the roofs they install barely last five years and will often require continuing repair work that’ll end up causing you more in the long run.
Always Work With Your Local Roofer
Fortunately, storm chasers are easy to identify since they are not local roofers and often use urgent and questionable tactics so you’ll hire them. Additionally, they don’t have local references to present to you.
