As we approach hail season in Colorado, it's important to learn to avoid roofing scams. Our team encourages all of our clients to check out our website, read our reviews, and verify our licensure with the local city government. These are three quick ways to avoid a roofing scam.
Why Are Roofing Scams A Concern?
Colorado Springs has over 300 roofing contractors. Of those 300 contractors, a little over 20 are actively performing work year-round. The rest appear out of the woodwork after a major storm to try and collect your insurance payments. Many of these contractors are not current with the local suppliers or building codes. This means that they often make promises they can't keep once the contract is signed. These types of contractors are just outdated, sadly, others will take your money and vanish. Check out this article from 2018 in the Gazette. These types of scammers always come out after major storms and somehow disappear in the wind later. Our team at Hennessey Roofing operates year-round in Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas. We pride ourselves in providing professional and stress free service and in earning five-star reviews from our clients.
How To Spot A Roofing Scam?
Hennessey Roofing recommends doing research on any company that comes knocking on your door following a hail storm. Several contractors, good and bad, are likely to be out canvassing neighborhoods that were hit the hardest. Telling the good from the bad can be quite tricky in person when a fast-talking salesman claims to want to help you. We recommend verifying licensure and reviews prior to signing any contract! Hennessey Roofing will gladly show you our website, reviews, and our valid licenses upon request.
