The terms storm chaser and roof gypsy are terms used by reputable local roofing contractors who see predatory roofers come into an area after a storm. With the size of the hail storm last month, there are bound to be some of these roofers calling on homes in Clemmons, Lexington and the local area. If you have storm damage, protect yourself by hiring a local and established roofing company for your roof repair or replacement needs.

Be Wary of a Roofer Who Knocks on Your Door

Rarely do established roofing contractors knock on doors soliciting business. This is even more true after a storm. The way they get more local business is by leaving a sign in the yard advertising that they are handling the roof replacement or repair. Sometimes they leave a brochure or card at your door. They may also ask for a review or referral when they’re done. However, they don’t take the time to knock on doors because you might have storm damage.

Check Out Companies Before You Invite Them to Your Home

Whenever you need a home restoration, improvement or repair, do a background check on the company you’re inviting into your home. It’s easy to search online to find out if they have:

  • A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau
  • Multiple 5-star reviews on public sites like Angi, Google and Facebook
  • A current license with your state
  • An address in the area that is not in a UPS store or post office

Treat Your Inspection Like an Interview

If they seem like a local roofing company, have them out for a storm damage inspection. Pay attention to their attire (do they have a shirt with the logo or are they neatly dressed?). Then look at their vehicle. Shady roofing contractors don’t have vehicles with their name, website and phone number on them. Is the license plate from North Carolina? What do they provide to you in the way of identification? Most will share at least a business card. What do you deduce from it? Finally, since this is an interview for a job, do they seem to be honestly answering your questions?
