Round Rock, TX (PRWEB) April 04, 2013
The United Association of Storm Restoration Contractors (UASRC) is responding to the hailstorm that affected Jackson, MS and surrounding areas on March 18th, 2013. Two UASRC contractor members are assisting homeowners in the region. The storm hit with a barrage of large hail with some hail as large as 4” over the northwest parts of the city and the town of Clinton, MS. There are approximately 25,000 homes that have been affected by large hail. UASRC members are contractors who offer multiple storm restorations services, and will be able to assist homeowners with any damage repairs needed.
UASRC Members that are available to assist homeowners are:
The UASRC wants to caution property owners to be careful after the storm passes. It is typical after severe weather for transient roofing companies to flood in to “help” with insurance claims. Some appear to be a trusted contractor, but are in fact an out of state drifter 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 or other UASRC branding on vehicles and company clothing.
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. The UASRC Faceook Page, 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.
