You’ve probably heard of the term “storm chaser” being thrown around here and there. They are arguably one of the more publicized roofing scammers, but many homeowners, unfortunately, still fall victim to their schemes.
Innovative Roofing and Siding discusses who these people are and why you should never let them work on your roofing projects.
What is a Storm Chaser?
Storm chasers are roofers that, as their name implies, travel around the country following the path of storms, hence the name. And while it sounds adventurous, their reason behind chasing these storms is that they’re actively looking for homeowners to exploit.
What’s the Risk of Working With Them?
Stormchasers know exactly how insurance companies work in terms of storm or hail damage. They’ll base their “repairs” on the square footage of the roof and how much it would cost to install a cheap roof. Unlike working with a local roofer, storm chasers only do the bare minimum to replace the roof and will not address other problems. The roofs they install barely last 5 years and often require repair work more than usual over the course of its lifetime.
