Hurricane Isaac could hit on the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina
Round Rock, TX (PRWEB) August 28, 2012
The United Association of Storm Restoration Contractors (UASRC) is watching Hurricane Isaac closely, in order to respond if needed. Currently seven UASRC members are preparing staff and supplies to assist affected property owners. Hurricane Isaac is expected to affect the Gulf Coast states and make landfall somewhere in the vicinity of New Orleans as early as Tuesday evening. Hurricane Isaac is expected to inflict heavy damage to roofing, siding, and other exterior surfaces. UASRC members are contractors who offer multiple storm restorations services, and will be able to assist homeowners with any damage repairs needed.

The UASRC wants to caution property owners to be careful after the storm passes. It is typical that after severe weather for transient roofing companies flood in to “help” with insurance claims. Some appear to be a trusted local contractor, but are in fact an out of state drifter, that is renting the quality local name to mask substandard work, and help fool local residents. This often leads to homeowners being taken advantage of. Sadly many homeowners give sizable down payments to these fly by night contractors, and are not able to repair their property when the contractor disappears with their money. The UASRC is a Non-Profit association whose members abhor these practices, and operate their business in strict accordance with the UASRC professional code of conduct. Homeowners will be able to instantly recognize UASRC members by the identification badge bearing the UASRC seal.
Using a UASRC member is the safest option when choosing a contractor to restore your property. If you choose to use a standard contractor please be careful and find out the following information to help identify if they are legitimate contractor:
- Clearly represents their products and services, including adequate disclosures of all material terms in writing
- Provides proper and current information on their state licensing, and liability insurance coverage
- Openly identifies the nature, location and ownership of their business and clearly discloses all policies, guarantees and procedures relevant to the customer repairs
- 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.
