Scammers like storm chasers like to target homeowners who are vulnerable and budget-conscious. They prey on people’s fears that their home is in danger and that working with other roofing companies is too expensive. To avoid these scammers, you will have to learn how to spot the warning signs.
Storm chasers are unethical roofers who follow severe weather events in search of homeowners to scam. They often travel door-to-door, offering to repair or replace roofs. They use high-pressure sales tactics, and they try to convince homeowners that they are offering a good deal. Unfortunately, they cut costs by using substandard materials and performing sloppy work. Don’t entertain door-to-door roofers, and instead look for a reputable and established local roofing contractor.
This type of scam involves a roofer showing up one day out of the blue claiming that there’s damage to your roof. These roofers then say that this “damage” requires a full roof replacement or an expensive repair project. Some of these scammers even go so far as to create the damage to the roof themselves during the “inspection.” Don’t just blindly trust someone like this. Always look for good roof repair companies, and ask for a second opinion.
Super Low Starting Bids
Some unethical contractors cheat homeowners by offering unrealistically low prices as their starting bid. Once the work begins, they suddenly begin to experience “unforeseen problems” that then greatly increase the costs. You can avoid this by doing a lot of research and talking to roofing companies about their pricing scheme. Always be suspicious of a company that’s offering a price that seems too good to be true.
