Storm chasers are what make roofing companies money. In fact, some of these companies just chase storms year round, hence the name. They knock on your door incessantly, pressure you into signing a contract and you may be getting a good deal, but will the work last? Chances are it won’t but since consumers simply hire a new company to fix issues, these storm chasers last.

Roofing scams are rampant

Roofing scams happen in every city across the nation year after year. Seniors, retirees and others are scammed by what they think are genuine roofers. They ask for cash up front, you hand it over, and they’re gone along with your money and your roofing needs still in jeopardy.

Things go wrong with roofs all the time, more than you know. Roofers cut corners, take things for granted and then when inspection time comes around, your roof may fail.
