Roofs all over the northwestern Minneapolis metro area are going to get hit hard this storm season. That also means that storm-chasing contractors are going to be hitting neighborhoods hard in an effort to make a quick buck. While their prices and quick project turnaround may look tempting at first glance, homeowners could actually run into more headaches than it’s worth with these out of town contractors. In this blog, read about how working with a local contractor is different.

It can be a confusing time when a homeowner suffers the misfortune of storm damage from high winds, a tornado, or hail. That’s the most frustrating part about storm-chasing contractors who play off homeowners’ fears. If you get a knock on your door from a pushy contractor shortly after a storm has passed through your neighborhood, it’s likely their company isn’t local. While their prices may be tempting at first glance and their timeline promises quick, here are a few things to keep in mind before you sign a contract:

  • They aren’t local, making it impossible for them to follow up with warranty work
  • Their crew may be so new and inexperienced that your roof could be their first project
  • The materials they use may not be of the highest quality

That’s why it’s so important you work with a trusted, local contractor for all of your roofing needs. The Chuba Company has been located in Elk River, MN since 1972. We are a full service contractor to the northern Minneapolis metro area with 140 years of combined industry experience. Here are just a few benefits to working with a local, professional contracting company:

  • We have an A+ rating with the BBB
  • We are a GAF Master Elite Contractor
  • We provide a Lifetime Workmanship Warranty
  • We have had the same roofing crew for the past 6 years
  • Our crew has completed over 600 roofs together

We’ll work with you through every step of the process should you encounter storm damage this year. We’ll come out to your house and provide you with a free storm damage inspection. If we find damage, we’ll work with your insurance provider to ensure the claim is handled smoothly.
