Hail Damage Repair in Northern Virginia

Northern Va. has increased in damaging winds, hail and severe thunderstorms since the 1990’s.  This has also increased the number of Hail Chasers in to Northern Va.

Hail Chasers:   Out of state companies that travel from state to state chasing insurance money, quick cash.  These companies usually offer local contractors huge sums of money to use their contractor’s license.  Once the majority of the hail/storm damage is repaired they leave VA to chase another storm.  Unfortunately, the local contractor gets lefts behind with a tremendous amount of repairs that eventually are too much to handle.  In many cases local contractors go out of business.

In fact, after the 1994 hail storm, 30% of our business for the next 10 years was repairing hail chaser's unprofessional, improperly installed roofing, siding, and trim work.  Sometimes there were repairs, sometimes there were entire jobs had to be re-done and in some cases there was structural damage to the home that was very costly.

 

Why repair your roof or siding after hail?
