Hail Storm = STORM CHASERS. PROTECT YOURSELF!

BEWARE OF STORM CHASERS!

Storm chasing companies are moving in to the areas of Middleton, Waunakee, Cross Plains and Madison that were hit by the hail storm this past weekend.

The hail storm swept across Dane County in the evening hours on Sunday, April 3, 2011.  Our crews have been out and about in the Madison and Middleton area providing free hail inspections to the areas that were hit by the hail.  A lot of damage has been found…but if you don’t protect yourself from the storm chasing companies that are moving in to the area…much more damage can be done.
We also want to caution you to be aware of companies that are swarming your neighborhood. You have most likely received numerous flyers from a wide variety of companies. Hail damage = STORM CHASERS. Out of State contractors are coming into town to target the areas hit by the hail storm. Often times, these “storm chasing” companies show up with out – of – state plates, no insurance and shoddy workmanship. Word of advice: before agreeing to anything with any company, verify proof of insurance, check them out with the better business bureau and don’t work with any one that is not a local company.

The promise that you will hear from these storm chasing companies is FREE! They will offer to replace your roof for the exact amount that your insurance company is willing to pay. How can they do that? We don’t know either…how can you properly replace a roof, siding or windows without knowing the amount that your insurance company is willing to cover? Our advice, do not sign a contract stating that they will represent you against your insurance company and do the job for the money that they get. If they say the will provide you a warranty, remember that they will be moving out of town towards an new town that will be affected by the next hail storm. Leaving you with no one to turn to when you have workmanship problems…which we can almost guarantee that you will.

Here is what you should do – work with a local company that you know will be here for you long after the storm.

One thought on “Hail Storm = STORM CHASERS. PROTECT YOURSELF!

  1. I’ve talked to these people whom you refer to as “storm chasers”. They are doing us a service, if we only had our local contractors, the work would never get done. You do need to research whom you are signing with, but the ones I’ve talked to work severe storms year round.

    I just had my adjuster out yesterday and the “Storm chaser” contractor was out here as well. I have a discontinued shingle, which my adjuster did not notice, and had my contractor not been there, I would of only had my half my roof replaced. I’ve talked with at least 10 different contractors in depth, most of them being local, and this “storm chaser” was the only one with any knowledge of my discontinued shingle.
