Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 13, 2013
The United Association of Storm Restoration Contractors (UASRC) is pleased to announce a new member to the organization, Phoenix Exteriors, Inc.
Phoenix Exteriors and Restorations has helped thousands of homeowners in Chicago and Memphis repair and remodel their homes. Chicago & Memphis see their fair share of storms which can often result in hail or wind damage to your home. This damage, if left untreated, can prove to be very costly over time. Therefore, it is important that you have a licensed professional inspect your siding and roof for hail or wind damage. The Phoenix Exteriors team has been inspecting and repairing homes for over 10 years. They are licensed, insured and professional. "Concerning the consumer, I have seen the industry change unfavorably since beginning work in this industry in 2000. I believe UASRC and their goals to resolve any future predicaments either consumers, state & local consumer agencies, property insurers and roofing contractors will face is something Phoenix Exteriors, Inc. is proud to be a part of," said Eric Stanis, President , Phoenix Exteriors, Inc.
The UASRC was formed as a non-profit organization with the goal of inspiring positive change in the storm restoration industry. The mission of the UASRC is to promote the highest ethical standards in the restoration industry. Our Members adhere to a code of professional conduct, educate property owners about the insurance claims process, and give back to the community through outreach and charitable programs.
With over 150 years of combined experience in the roofing and restoration industry, our members look to make a positive impact on the industry by providing the best in-class service to homeowners affected by storms. The UASRC will also work closely with legislators, insurance companies, and both local and national media to improve the practices and image of the storm restoration industry.
After storms hit an area, homeowners are often approached by transient roofing companies to assist with insurance claims and repairing the damage. 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. The UASRC Facebook page has a lot of great information on 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.
