Every once in a while, a particularly nasty storm sweeps through Indiana and causes thousands, or even millions, of dollars in damage. If your roof suffers extensive damage from wind, rain, or hail, you should hire a local roofing contractor right away. Here are a few reasons why:
Avoid Potential Scams
There are hundreds of dishonest contractors traversing the country at any given time. These individuals, often known as “storm chasers,” arrive at damaged properties within a day or two of major storms and request upfront payments for quick repairs. They then proceed to perform sub-par repairs or none at all. When it comes to roofing repairs, you should always select a company with a physical address in your area.
Ensure Quality Work
Hiring a local roofing company will ensure that your roof receives the best possible repairs. Local companies know all about local weather patterns and can make the appropriate adjustments to your roof. Local roofers are also more familiar with the rules of local homeowners associations.
Support the Local Economy
When you hire a contractor from out of town, your money will go to whichever community that contractor is based in. By hiring a local contractor, however, your money will be taxed by your local government and used to support public works in your own community.
Stay in Close Contact
Communication is one of the most important aspects of the contractor-client relationship. If you’re unable to reach your roofing contractor via phone or email, it’s nice to know that you can always visit their local office with your concerns or thanks. You will also have built a relationship with your local contractor so you will now know who to contact if your roof is damaged in the future.
