Fayetteville hail damage may not be as noticeably destructive as a flood but the damage can cause tens of thousands in repairs. The roof is your main defense against the elements and once water damage occurs, the entire structure is jeopardized. Did you know that there are “storm chasers” who monitor the national weather forecasts diligently and rush down to areas ravaged by hurricanes, hail, floods, landslides and wild fires to take advantage of desperate homeowners who just want their lives to return back to normal as quickly as possible?

A storm chaser may seem very knowledgeable and professional, although their shoddy workmanship can leave you with a haphazard Fayetteville roofing job. Often these shysters will charge you before the work is done and will fail to deliver. Worse yet, if your Imposter Fayetteville roofers haven’t done a professional job, the manufacturer’s warranty on your shingles will not be valid. Sometimes these unqualified opportunists roll into town and have accidents on your property, leaving you with the bill when you find they don’t have worker’s compensation for their contractors. Fayetteville hail damage is no joke and it takes a trained professional to spot the dangers, rip out old roofing and replace it with new.

An improperly installed roof is more difficult to spot than a poorly painted wall or slap-dash flooring job, so it’s important that you check the company’s credentials before you agree to do business with them. You’ll want to check the Georgia Incorporation Commission to see that they’re licensed to do Fayetteville roofing. Look at their address to ensure they’re from the state and, if you can, drive by the office to see that it’s a permanent office, not some fly-by-night rental unit. You can peek at the driver’s license of your salesman to verify he’s from Georgia too. You’ll also want to call the Georgia Worker’s Comp office to verify that the Fayetteville roofers have coverage, so you don’t get stuck with a hospital bill should something happen. For your added protection, see that the contractors have General Liability Insurance of at least $1 million dollars too, so you’ll be protected if they damage your home or property. You can ask for local supplier references to ensure the Fayetteville roofers pay their vendors so you don’t have a lien placed on your home if the bills aren’t paid. Asking for Fayetteville roofing references from six months ago or older will easily identify a storm chaser. Sometimes quickly settling on the “best price” can be far costlier than you imagined.
