Beware of Storm Chasers - Rochester 02777

11/25/2019 (Permalink)

Tornado approaching Storms aren't the only things that bring damage. Be wary of storm chasers that can cause more harm than good!

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 needed them until recent storms damaged your house, 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 was and prey on vulnerable families that need 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. 

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 research online.
