“When storm damage hits, it’s easy to be lured in by the money-saving promises that many 'storm chasers' offer. We show homeowners the benefit of using a licensed contractor who can guarantee their work and walk them through the insurance claim process from start to finish.” Matt Woods, President of American Roofing & Exteriors.
When severe hail storms ripped through the St. Louis metropolitan area on April 28, 2012, many of the residents were left, not only with the worry of the uncertain damage that occurred to their homes, but also the looming fear of tackling the insurance claim process.
So far this year, St. Louis roofing company, American Roofing & Exteriors, has helped over one hundred fifty families repair damage from recent storms. While doing so they helped build understanding among homeowners about the insurance claim process, the amount of time allowed to file a claim after the damage has taken place and perhaps most importantly, how the homeowners should expect to be paid by the insurance for their claim.
Along with extensive hail damage, storms tend to bring with them an abundance of “storm chasers” from out of state—contractors who are either unlicensed or misrepresenting themselves as a local contractor and leaving homeowners with no long term guarantee once the work is finished. “We stress to our customers the importance of using a licensed contractor. In states that require a license, anyone can find out if a contractor is licensed by checking their state’s website. Whoever you select, it should be a contractor that can not only guarantee their work, but one that makes themselves available for any concerns you have once the work is complete. Homeowners should be sure to check with the Better Business Bureau on any contractor they may be considering.” explains Matt Woods, President of American Roofing & Exteriors.
