Storm chasers are roofers that follow heavy storms across the country, seeking out damaged homes and then moving on to the next storm. They are often for quantity over quality and are quick to move with the storm. Here are some characteristics of storm chasers to help you avoid them.
1. Flyers – Storm chasers often hand out flyers the day of or after a storm. They do this to attempt to get business as quickly as possible while the power of the storm is fresh on your mind.
2. Magnets – In many cases, these storm chasers have magnets on their trucks that are switched depending on the city or state they are currently in. You will often see them driving through neighborhoods that recently experienced a storm. Keep an eye on their signs and whether they appear to be removable.
3. Plates – License plates can be a dead give away to storm chasers. If the license plate is out of state, you can be assured that this is a storm chaser business.
If you have experienced storm damage, be sure to get a hold of a local roofing company that can treat you right and provide you quality service.
