What To Expect

After a storm, let the team at Advanced Exteriors help you evaluate your roof’s condition.

After a storm, the unfortunate reality is that you can expect a sudden influx of contractors in your area looking to make a quick sale and purportedly help you in a time of need. And while you are likely to receive visits from door-to-door salesmen, flashy looking mailers and even unsolicited phone calls – each with an offer that sounds better than the next – we urge you to do your homework and remember that if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. These out-of-town “storm chasers”, also known as roofing gypsies, make a living by traveling around the country in the wake of storms looking for homeowners to exploit.

These unscrupulous roofers have figured out the general formula for how insurance companies allocate funds after a storm related claim, and often find a way to get every possible dollar from you (via your homeowner’s insurance) while providing you with a bare bones, cheap new roof that meets only minimal standards, not to mention the fact that customer service is nonexistent six months later – when you realize there is a leak due to inferior workmanship or improper installation.
