Roofing Storm Chasers Descend on Phoenix
After the recent hail storms that hit Phoenix, Arizona, hungry storm chasing roofers have landed in Phoenix and are setting up shop and launching their armies of high pressure sales pros.
These well planned companies with their teams of high pressure sales people go door to door and pressure homeowners for a so called “FREE” roof inspection and talk them into filing roof replacement claim with their homeowners insurance company. They insinuate that there is a short window of time to file a claim (which is not true). The purpose is to scare homeowners into a quick decision so they can get as much work as possible.
“The biggest issue is that these hired roofing guns, quickly install your roof and then disappear from the storm area. When you do have a roof leak or roof issue, they are nowhere to be found.” Strong words from Nicholas Bryditzki, a HAAG Engineering Certified roof inspector and Arizona roofing contractor. “I have been receiving calls from out of state companies looking for their best angle to work this storm, even offering compensation to work under my roofing contractor’s license.”
Now these storm chasers are even smarter; some convinced small struggling local roofing companies that are established, to allow the out of town storm chasers to use their name and license number, this way they look legitimate! “Sad part is after they leave, the poor local roofer is stuck with any warranty calls,” Bryditzki stated. Storm Chasers generally do not offer any details of the work to be done and offer little to no written workmanship guarantees. Even if they do, a guarantee is worthless if the company is no longer in business or in our area.
Bryditzki has attended roof training seminars where these storm chasers try to get certified in various roof systems or as certified roof inspectors to appear legitimate to unsuspecting property owners. "I have even heard them “brag” on how they over charged property owners and submitted change orders and the poor property owner was just another victim with no where to turn", Bryditzki stated.
Bryditzki says, “The best way to protect yourself is always question the sales guy and never sign anything under pressure!"
