Signs that you might be dealing with a storm chaser or a contractor that is looking to commit insurance fraud for a profit.
While Collis Roofing will be in many neighborhoods knocking on doors asking if homeowners need help, you may also be greeted with an unexpected knock or door hanger by a company you do not recognize.
The news has also reported storm chasers and insurance fraud from licensed, local contractors. Many of these companies door knock, leave door hangers and leave yard signs offering free roofs with no deductible or cost to homeowners, have high pressure tactics and similar color uniforms. Use caution before allowing anyone into your home, business or on your roof as not every contractor uses background checks and drug free policies like Collis Roofing. Research any company before you give anyone any money or sign any legally binding documents such as a contract.
If a contractor is asking you to pull a permit on their behalf to “save money”, as this is often to protect them because they have no insurance or Workers Compensation, opening you up to potential personal injury, wrongful death lawsuits and more against your homeowner's insurance and yourself personally should these workers become injured on the job at your home or business.
All contractors are required to collect the deductible on any insurance claim. While your insurance should pay for any legitimate claims for storm damage, any contractor that is offering you a roof for free without paying your deductible is felonious insurance fraud. Insurance fraud can also be caused by discounting your deductible or mechanical damage that the contractors cause to try and create false insurance claims.
