    Yep... We used a storm chaser last time mostly because we almost had to since nobody else was available for 6 months or more due to the huge numbers of roofs that needed repairing.

    Some retreads from Colorado. They had to be scammers too since they did the "no deductible" option and the cost of the job was, amazingly, exactly what the insurance company said they would pay. Those are the ones you have to watch out for. Get the insurance companies quote first, do not tell the roofer what it is, and then get your estimate from them. If the insurance company says $11,000 and the roofer says the same, they are not worth the effort.

    I went down and got the actual cost of the shingles, vents, and paper needed for the job and compared it to the roofers estimate and there was a considerable mark up. I will wait the time next time and go with a local company that has a good reputation. Lange roofing had a horrible wait time after the last storm. I hear they are good, but costly.
    actually, these "storm chasers" or "travelers" you refer to them can do an exceptional job if you provide close and knowledgeable supervision but if left on their own, yep, they'll take you to the cleaners..

    Personally, I don't care how much they make from AllState as long as I get a good roof and don't owe anybody anything.......

    if you do use a "traveler" check every bundle as it comes off the truck and before it gets on the roof. check all the flashing around each vent, valley, eave and chimney......be very very 'picky' when you're checking the flashing because once they pull out of your driveway, you'll never ever seen them again and they can save themselves a lot of time by adopting a "good enuff" attitude regarding flashing.....don't forget the drip edging!......the last time i had shingles replaced, the crew was trying to leave while I was still checking.....found out they didn't put up the west drip edge....also, make damned sure they seal the chimney flashing........and finally, NEVER EVER NEVER pay a 'traveler' up front.......oh, and btw, a lot of 'traveler' teams are formed and managed by NASCAR drivers out of charlotte.......especially Dillon.....mac

    Biggest way to avoid a 'traveler' roofing company? Hire ONLY companies that have been in the area for years.

    My parents' house was reroofed back in 1984 (when it was 20 years old), and again in 2005. First company was local, but I forgot who they are (IF they're still in business...) and I don't know if they did the later job or if it was someone else.

    Proclaim out of Dallas. They have great reviews and BBB rating. Plus I went to elementary school with the guy's mom so I can always get a hold of him!
