Typically when a natural disaster such as a hurricane, tornado or even
a hail storm hits an area contractors from all over the state swarm in
to solicit business. These contractors called “storm chasers”
knock on doors and offer to install a new roof for the homeowner for whatever
amount the insurance company will pay. All the homeowner has to do is
pay their deductible and they get a new roof. The storm chaser will typically
try to get the homeowner to sign a contract immediately agreeing to let
them do the work. Sounds like a good deal and in some cases it may be.
However, once the contractor completes the work they typically move on
to another state to look for more work. Thus what happens if later on
you have a problem with your roof? Do you think the out of town contractor
is going to drive hundreds of miles to repair a leak on your home? Probably
not, thus you are essentially stuck without any warranty for the labor
on your roof. Remember a warranty, regardless of how impressive it may
look on paper is only as good as the person or company that wrote it.
Local contractors can also work with insurance companies to do the work.
Often times without the high pressure sales approach and without the worry
of what to do if there is a problem with your roof in the future.
