Beware Of Storm Chasing Contractors

Sharing Insights On the Iowa Derecho

Our General Manager, Rich Anderson met with the local news channel to share his insight on how to avoid storm chasing contractors. The storm that swept through Iowa has left homeowners devastated and confused about how to start with their roof replacements. This type of storm brings a wave of unlicensed, uninsured, and unreliable contractors hoping to make a quick buck off a homeowner’s desperate situation.

“Some people haven’t had their power turned back on yet and have already had people try and take advantage of them and their homes.” -Rich A.

Storm chasing contractors tend to be very pushy and even fraudulent. You should be on the lookout for contractors that drive vehicles with out of state plates, can’t supply documentation of being insured, offer to pay your insurance deductible, and does not have a builders license number. If you think you’re being scammed contact the Better Business Bureau.
