Safeguarding Against Fraudulent Storm Damage Claims

Recognizing Fraudulent Contractors

Post-storm recovery is often complicated by the emergence of “storm chasers,” fraudulent contractors who exploit vulnerable homeowners. Here’s how to spot them:

  • Unsolicited Offers: Be cautious of contractors who approach you unsolicited, offering free inspections or urgent repairs.
  • Lack of Local Presence: Verify that the contractor has a legitimate physical address in your area.
  • Questionable Contract Terms: Avoid contractors who demand upfront payment or push you to sign binding agreements hastily.
  • Ethically Dubious Proposals: Dismiss any contractor offering to handle your insurance deductible, as this is unethical and illegal.
  • Aggressive Sales Tactics: High-pressure sales tactics are a red flag indicating potential fraud.

Choosing a Trustworthy Contractor

To ensure you’re dealing with a legitimate contractor after a storm, consider these guidelines:

  • Verify Credentials: Ensure the contractor has proper insurance, licensing, and a verifiable business location.
  • Check Reputation: Research their standing with the Better Business Bureau and read online reviews.
  • Specialization and Expertise: Choose contractors specializing in roofing, which indicates a higher level of skill and reliability.
  • Community Standing: Prefer contractors with a strong local presence and community ties, like Trojan Roofing.
