What to Look for in a Storm Damage Contractor

Aug 27, 2021

After a severe storm has wreaked havoc on your neighborhood, you’ll need the services of a storm damage contractor that can restore your home to the way it was, or better. But how do you know you’re choosing the right company? Truth be told, the last thing you need is to partner with a storm damage contractor that’s going to give you the runaround and perform subpar work on your home. When looking to get your home restored after a major storm, make sure you choose a contractor that:

Has Experience

Repairs on a home after a serious storm can be a pretty significant investment. Choosing a storm damage contractor that has a proven track record will provide you with peace of mind knowing your home is in the hands of a team that knows what they’re doing. A great way to gauge a contractor’s level of experience and quality of work is by checking their rating with the Better Business Bureau as well as reviews from past customers.

Maintains Reputable Relationships with Manufacturers

When searching for the ideal storm damage contractor, it’s worth looking for a company that holds valuable relationships with established manufacturers in the industry. Designations such as being an Owens Corning Platinum Preferred Contractor and a HAAG Certified Inspector are signs that a contractor has a high level of expertise and a solid reputation.

Has a Strong Local Presence

While it may seem tempting to partner with a national company to perform storm repairs on your home, going with a local contractor has several benefits larger companies can’t offer. Local contractors generally have a better understanding of the area and climate, which goes a long way in choosing the right products to use in repairing your home. In addition, local storm damage contractors have working relationships with insurance claims adjusters in the area, ensuring your claim gets treated fairly.

Provides Constant Communication

There’s nothing more frustrating than partnering with a storm damage contractor that fails to keep you up-to-date on your home improvement project, especially if you’ve never been through the process before. Be sure to find a crew that maintains an open line of communication from start to finish.

Offers a Warranty

Any storm damage contractor that doesn’t offer a warranty with the work they perform is one you should steer clear of. Before hiring a contractor for your home improvements, be sure to inquire about the warranties the company has in place to cover any defects in workmanship.

Merritt was fantastic. I spoke with several highly rated companies for our replacement and this crew had a great combination of professionalism, value, and just a great personal connection. Victor and the rest of the team made a tremendous impression on my family and me, and the installation was done quickly and with great skill. I hope I never need to replace a roof again, but if I do, it'll be with these folks!

I had a complicated roof claim! Ryan was knowledgeable and super patient and assuring with what was going to happen during the process. Remember when the claims rep comes to inspect the damages, he is looking out for himself and his company's interests. A good roof rep will have your back, which is exactly what happened. Merritt Roofing bent over backwards to get my roof up with my intense schedule and I am extremely happy with how everything was handled in a very professional way! The new roof looks great and it got a good report by the inspector. Thanks a lot! Highly recommended.

We had a great experience with Merritt Roofing. Ryan Guest was on time and as friendly and helpful as can be. He went out of his way to make sure our roof was taken care of and kept us completely informed the entire time. Couldn't have asked for a better experience for a roofing issue. We definitely know now who to call in the future, thanks Ryan and Merritt Roofing for making it so easy.
