Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Storm Damage Restoration Contractor By Dmitry Lipinskiy, Owner of Storm Group Roofing
Last week, I ran into an old friend of mine who just started working with a local storm damage restoration company. As a young 19 year old, it was his job to go door-to-door in neighborhoods struck by recent storms and pitch his company’s roof repair services. He had had very little experience in storm damage repair (only working for the company for a few weeks) but still managed to sell 12 roof repairs in the last week alone! I was amazed and slightly disappointed to hear this.
Give the young man credit for being a good salesman, but that’s exactly what these “storm chasing” companies excel at: selling their storm damage restoration services. Because of these companies’ strong emphasis on selling, their quality of work often suffers. It came as no surprise to hear that my friend’s company had been forced to change its name several times because of their questionable business practices. Sadly, this is a common theme among roofing contractors as storm damage repair companies as 90% of these businesses will go under in 7 years.
In 2006, I started Storm Group Roofing with the idea of doing business differently than other local roofing contractors. Instead of using aggressive sales tactics to sell our roofing services, we want to educate you so you can make the best decision about storm damage repair for your property.
