Hiring professionals to get your roof fixed is a lot better than trying to do it on your own. However, there’s a good chance that storm chasers are already trying to get you to fall for their schemes, particularly if your area has been hit by bad weather recently. Fortunately, our roof leak repair experts at Genesis Roofing have a few tips on spotting storm chasers so you can steer clear of them.
Always Ask for a License
One of the first things that you need to check in order to avoid storm chasers is their certification. You need to ask for a roofer’s license and a business permit to check if they’re legally allowed to operate in the area.
Storm chasers tend to hop from one state to another looking for areas recently hit by a storm. This is why you should make sure you’re hiring a local residential roof replacement contractor like Genesis Roofing. We have a physical address in our area that you can visit in case you need to follow up on details regarding the project, or just to check.
Ask for Feedback
A great way to check if the contractor you’re hiring is worth your cash is to find out how former clients feel about them. Go online and look for testimonials (usually found at their site or some third-party review sites) and see for yourself if they are capable of actually performing good work. Look for at least a few good reviews and little to no bad feedback.
Don’t Go for Cheap Offers
Last but not least, you should start having second thoughts if someone’s offering their services for an absurdly low price. Storm damage restoration services require the purchase of high-quality materials and labor that only the likes of our certified experts can provide. Cheap materials or labor costs typically means it’s a storm chaser trying to lure you in. In the end, you’re not saving money at all.
