Florida is a place where the weather can sometimes get a little wild, and when that happens, there is a risk that your home and your roof could suffer damage. A recent storm that hit Daytona Beach demonstrated the power of these storms:
“A line of thunderstorms, including a small microburst, according to the National Weather Service, swept across central Florida Monday, flipping a small plane that had just landed at Daytona International Airport and bringing a tree down on a Daytona Beach home.
Stella Workman said she thought the worst when she saw yellow tape across her mother’s lawn and a large rotten tree resting on her house on Kottle Circle in Daytona Beach.
Workman said her mom was sitting in the living room and thought it was thunder.
Several people who spoke with Channel 9’s Blaine Tolison said the storm only lasted about five minutes, but left quite a mess.”
Many homeowners don’t think much about roof repair in Sarasota, FL until they need it, and may not know where to start when looking for a reputable company to provide the service. In the wake of severe storms there are often unscrupulous “contractors” that sweep in, in the hopes of making some quick money; but these people do not have local offices and oftentimes, they disappear within just a short period of time.
To protect yourself, it’s best to work with local companies that have offices or locations in Sarasota or the surrounding areas. Check contractors’ licenses to ensure they are operating a legal business in the state and make sure they have the proper insurance coverage. Ask for references from people in the area to see whether the company does good work on a consistent basis.
