Colorado Hail Storm Attracts Out of State Roofers - Consumers Warned
Hail storms this summer in the Denver area have attracted hundreds of out of state roofing companies. Consumers have been warned to carefully choose a reputable roofing company - preferably a local established company.
Why? The roofing industry has an infamous history of shady roofing operators chasing storms, taking deposits and doing poor work - or worse, no work at all. The home owner is stuck however as the storm chasing roofing company moves on to the next storm, often under a different name - leaving the wreckage behind.
Consumers are generally aware of the issue. Chad Nikkel, owner of Colorado Roofing and Exteriors - one of Denver's top roofing companies, reminds consumers, "Always check to make sure you are dealing with a local reputable company with an established history of good work. In Colorado there is very little licensing required so the reliability, skill and expertise can vary dramatically. Choose a company like Colorado Roofing - we're local, experienced, certified by the top manufacturers and we have a strong history of great work and happy customers"
How can consumer check on a company? Here are a couple suggestions:
1. Check them out at www.BBB.org - this is the Better Business Bureau. If they aren't listed in your market - beware.
2. Visit one of the large manufacturers like Owens Corning. See if the company you are considering is a registered contractor in your area. Visit www.OwensCorning.com for a list of the top contractors in your town.
With winter just around the corner homeowners will be anxious to get the work done now. That is smart...but also be smart about who you choose. Demand that you work only with a local roofing contractor with a strong history of good work.
