With several weeks still left in the 2014 hurricane season, NRCA warns that following a hurricane, it is common for unprofessional contractors to take advantage of unsuspecting and distressed homeowners and building owners and do less than the proper repair on roof systems. NRCA urges homeowners and business owners to use healthy skepticism when hiring a roofing contractor to repair their hurricane- damaged roof systems and insist on working with an NRCA professional roofing contractor.
In addition, NRCA recommends inspection and repair of hurricane-damaged roof systems happen as quickly as possible and strongly advises against homeowners climbing on their roofs to perform inspections or to remove debris. Homeowners should contact an NRCA professional roofing contractor to perform these tasks.
