Homeowners Beware of Roofing Scams

Popular Roofing Scams Homeowners Need to Avoid

Storm Chasers

Storm chasers are temporary roofing companies, independent contractors or generally the unemployed with limited or no roofing experience at all, who will follow storm ravaged areas in order to scam homeowners out of their money. They do this by offering non-existent roofing services and running away with the homeowner’s cash. Avoid signing with any roofing contractor that isn’t local to your area. Ask the Better Business Bureau (BBB) or other reputable and professional roofing organizations for references and city registration/licenses before dealing with any roofing contractor. Beware if the roofing contractor refuses to give you an independent estimate without first looking at your insurance paperwork. Do not sign anything and just tell him simply you are not interested in his services. roofing scams Continue reading Homeowners Beware of Roofing Scams
