Avoid Roofing Scams After a Storm

After a hurricane, it’s common for scam artists to prey on vulnerable homeowners in need of urgent repairs.

Here’s how to protect yourself:

Verify Credentials: Always check the credentials of any roofing contractor. Look for licensing, insurance, and references.

Beware of Door-to-Door Contractors: Be cautious of contractors who appear uninvited at your door offering immediate services. Reputable companies rarely solicit door-to-door.

Check Reviews and Ratings: Look up contractors on review sites and check their ratings with the Better Business Bureau.

Get Everything in Writing: Ensure all work details, costs, and schedules are provided in a written contract. Read it carefully before signing.



Preparing your roof for hurricane season is vital for protecting your home and family. Conduct thorough inspections, maintain your roof, and make necessary upgrades. Contact Roofwerks today for an inspection and consultation.
