If your home is in an area that was hit by hail, strong winds, or tornado activity during last week’s storm event, you have probably seen “storm chasing” roofing companies wondering up and down your street. Do not let yourself be pressured by a sales person from one of these roofing companies to choose their company without doing some research first! They can have some very convincing sales tactics, but may not be the best Dallas roofing company for you.
1. Do a lot of research on the company. Find out as much as you can about them before you sign a contract. Browse the internet, and verify they are who they say they are. Look them up on the Better Business Bureau. It is also very important to make sure the company has insurance, and that the policy is legitimate. Also ask for references, previous customers will be able to tell you about pros and possible cons of the company.
2. If a roofing company is asking you for money before they get started on your roof, this is a red flag. Unless there are materials in your driveway, do not give them money! The only time upfront money may be required, is for some kind of special order product that has a no return policy. Also, do not pay them a final payment until the job is 100% complete.
3. Find a Dallas roofing contractor that can help you in dealing with your insurance company. A roofing company should be well-versed enough and know the insurance process for roof replacements. They should be able to examine your insurance paperwork, and determine whether or not you are getting the proper amount of money for the storm damage your home received.
