Beware of Storm Chasers
Ever notice that after a major storm a bunch of construction companies pop up that you’ve never heard of with addresses and locations that are anything but local?
Maybe you never noticed them because you’ve never had the need for them until recent storms damaged your property, or you were never looking so you didn’t find it. As likely as that can be, we caution against using construction and repair companies outside of your local area. The reason is, we’ve found that many of these “companies” pack up their gear and head to where the most recent storm took place and prey on vulnerable families that need emergency repairs. After the repairs are done, they pack up and move to the next storm-shattered city, leaving you to fend for yourself in case anything goes awry after the repair. Without a local office to contact, you’re usually the one paying the price for their “quick” work.
While the prices may be enticing, and the promise of getting it done quickly appealing, the cons outweigh the pros. Always go with a local and reputable company when choosing to do repairs on your house. Whether that’s gathering information from others who’ve used the company in question in the past, or doing your own research online.
