GutterHelmet®: How to Avoid Shady Storm-Chasers

By August 17, 2015October 18th, 2023No Comments

Every time there’s a storm, we always hear in the news that a lot of homeowners are being victimized by storm chasers. No, not those scientists who follow storms to gather data for their studies, we are talking about those so-called “professional roofers” driving around the state looking to make a quick buck by scamming storm-devastated homeowners.

Yes, there are many “storm chasers” out there, so you should know how to avoid getting victimized. So, how can you protect yourself from shady roofers? Gutter Helmet®, the trusted experts when it comes to rain gutter protection in Cookeville TN, and the nearby areas, offers these simple tips:

• Get Several Bids and References
You should get at least three estimates from three different gutter or roofing companies.

• Research Thoroughly
Researching would definitely get the job done in picking out legitimate gutter company. You should get the company’s phone number and address; try to visit their office. You should also check if the company is licensed and insured.

You can also check out online to know if there have been complaints filed against the contractor. Some sites can also provide you with reviews from previous customers.

• Go Local
Storm chasers are usually not local, as most of them travel around the country, looking for areas to make some quick money after a bad storm. A local contractor, on the other hand, will surely have an office near you and probably has been in business for years.

• Draw up a Contract
Demanding a written contract with all the details that you and the contractor have agreed upon is an effective way of protecting yourself from scams. Just make sure to read all the details in the contract before you sign it.
