Beware of storm chasers! These are roofers that travel around the country following a trail of storms and exploiting unlucky homeowners whose roofs were damaged. These scammers will go to areas that had just been affected by severe weather conditions like hail or strong winds. They will look for homes that have sustained damage. Sometimes these unscrupulous roofers will give out flyers or leaflets offering repairs, or they can even show up at your doorstep unannounced and give a free inspection.
They will then offer you a cheap new roof or cheap repairs. You can only expect the roof to be poorly constructed, and you can be sure that if any problems occur, you won’t be able to contact them at all because they have already skipped town.
With these kinds of scams around, every homeowner should observe due diligence when hiring a contractor to work on his/her roof. Hire local, reputable, and trusted roofers in Sarasota FL like us at Roofing by Curry.
