Hiring the right roofing company after a storm or hurricane

Posted on May 24, 2013

Milford NH, March 13—Adam Vaillaincourt Roofing Contractor (www.adamvroofing.com) notes that the Better Business Bureau got 3.3 million inquiries in 2011 from people wanting to know how to hire a good roofing company. The majority of those requests come immediately after a major storm or hurricane.

Unfortunately, natural disasters like hurricanes bring out common after-disaster roofing scams. Roofing company scammers hit people when they are most vulnerable at a time when competent help is busy.

Immediately after a storm is not a good time to go out and hire the first roofing company you can find,” says Adam Vallaincourt, owner of Vallaincourt Roofing.

If you’ve had storm damage to your roof, the first thing to do is stay calm and do your research. Check your insurance policy to see what is covered. If you need immediate help for temporary repairs, save all receipts. Whatever you do, don’t succumb to drive-by “roofers” who use high-pressure sales tactics to force you to make a decision in a hurry. A common tactic is for a roofing contractor NH scammer is to come up to your door and announce that your home is unsafe. Or, they might say they’re working just down the street and their proximity means they can offer you a discount.

“You need to take charge of the hiring process and be proactive,” Vallaincourt says. “Talk to people you know who have hired a roofing contractor NH. Ask if they’re satisfied with the work that was performed,” Vallaincourt says. “Once you’ve identified three or four roofing contractors, get estimates in writing from each.”

Once you choose a roofing contractor NH, make sure every promise they make is written into the contract. You should expect a warranty on both the products used and the labor involved. It should spell out who will replace damaged landscaping during reroofing and who will haul away the roofing. Make sure the payment schedule allows you to hold back some of the money until you are satisfied with the completed job.
