After storms hit an area, homeowners are often approached by transient roofing companies to assist with insurance claims and repairing the damage. This often leads to homeowners getting scammed and ending up in a predicament of being out money and not being able to complete their project. UASRC members will be instantly recognizable with their credentials and UASRC identification badges. As a best practice, you should look for the following to identify a legitimate roofer:
- Clearly represents their products and services, including adequate disclosures of all material terms in writing
- Provides proper information on their insurance coverage
- Openly identifies the nature, location and ownership of the business and clearly discloses all policies, guarantees and procedures relevant to the customer
- Abides by all written agreements and verbal representations
- Does not offer or agree to cover the insurance deductible
The UASRC was formed in part to give property owners the information they need to make an informed decision in regards to their storm related repairs. Our facebook page UASRC Facebook and website at http://www.uasrc.org are both sources of information related to the storm restoration industry. The UASRC also serves as a resource for property owners and contractors that have fallen victim to disreputable contractors, and insurance claim related issues.
