We’ve had some nasty weather recently and it’s times like these when “storm chasers” come around. Storm chasers refer to sketchy construction companies that pop up out of nowhere and offer to fix any damage that has affected your home due to recent storms.
While this may sound like a great opportunity, we advise you to steer clear of these companies. They tend to inspect your home and point out one or several things that need to be fixed, then give you a quote that’s likely less than other, reputable companies. This lower cost is usually because the home repairs they do are sub-par. Whether they use low-grade materials, don’t have the right experience, or cut corners during their repairs, you can count on these companies for cheap work.
Many times, after they’re done with the work and you’ve paid them, storm chasers will disappear or will be hard to contact. This makes it frustrating to obtain or use a warranty or to have someone from the company return to your home to fix something that goes wrong.
7 common signs of storm chasers:
Unmarked or unprofessional vehicles
Out of state license plates (from far away) because they follow storms and then move on
Door-to-door solicitation right after a storm
No local references
Workmanship pricing that’s significantly low
No insurance policy or construction license number
You feel pressured or rushed into a decision
