When your home suffers storm damage, the aftermath can be stressful and overwhelming. High-pressure salespeople, often referred to as “storm chasers”, frequently descend upon affected areas, offering quick fixes and instant relief.

In this blog post, we’ll dive into what “storm chasers” are and the benefits of working with local, reputable contractors like The Exteriors Company, when a storm hits.


Storm Chasers or Local Experts: Who Can Best Weather Storm Damage?

How do storm chasers stack up against local exterior experts? Only you can decide who can help you weather the damage after the storm hits.

Understanding Storm Chasers

Storm chasers are contractors who travel from one storm-affected area to another, seeking quick business opportunities. They often employ high-pressure sales tactics, knocking on doors and promising immediate repairs. While their offers may seem appealing in the immediate aftermath of a storm, here are a few reasons to approach them with caution:

  • Temporary Presence: Storm chasers usually appear right after a storm hits. But once another area is affected, the storm chasers often follow. Your storm damage is yesterday’s news, and it can be challenging to get them to return for follow-up repairs or warranty issues.
  • Quality Concerns: In their rush to capitalize on the situation, storm chasers might cut corners, leading to subpar workmanship that could result in further damage down the line.
  • Insurance Complications: Navigating insurance claims can be complex. Storm chasers might not have the necessary experience or local knowledge to ensure you get the maximum benefit from your insurance policy.
