Towson, MD - Towson Roofing Pros, a residential roofing company serving Towson, Baltimore, and the greater Maryland area warns local homeowners to carefully check a roofer’s background and reputation before signing an agreement for a roof repair or replacement. The warning comes with the rainy season, which attracts roofers who collect insurance checks and perform poor roofing jobs, leaving homeowners without recourse should the work be sub-par.
Storm chasers are roofing companies that trail severe weather around the country, installing new roofs or repairing roof damage caused by severe weather such as excessive wind, rain or both. These non-local roofers take homeowners’ insurance claim checks as payment for roofing services and rush through as many roofing jobs as possible before moving on to the neighborhood or state. Towson Roofing Pros, a local Baltimore roof repair company, has an established local reputation that homeowners can count on.
“Towson residents deal with severe weather and they are even sometimes less prepared for the storm chasers that follow heavy wind and rain. These companies send sales people door-to-door, blanket the area with signs, and sometimes even advertise as insurance recovery experts or restoration specialists,” explains Julius Mills, Towson Roofing Pros owner.

Mr. Mills said, “Homeowners have noticed there are absolutely tons of roofing contractors in Towson. The most common things homeowners should consider before they decide is whether or not the company is local. We’ve heard of scam artists from different states coming into a storm area collecting money and doing a poor job or sometimes not even completing the job at all. We recommend that homeowners make sure the roofing contractor is insured before they are hired. If a homeowner has a leak after your roof has been replaced, the contractor insurance can cover the cost of some of the damage that occurs including flooring, sheetrock, and painting.“
He also added, “Make sure the roofing company has good references you can check out. Most quality contractors are very proud of their work and this should not be an issue. Finally make sure you are comfortable with the contractor. He has to be able to walk you through the entire roofing process and you expect the highest quality from the beginning of the project to completion.”
Just because the company is local and recognizable doesn’t mean homeowners are really dealing with that company. Out of state roofing companies often establish local phone numbers and office addresses to use in their signs and marketing. Since the area code is local, unsuspecting homeowners believe it is a local company. Homeowners should ask roofers if they do business in different states and verify the information. Also check with the local Better Business Bureau. Some local roofing companies perpetuate the problem by leasing their names to out-of-state roofers so they legitimately appear as Towson based roofers. They leave when the work is done and the local company is responsible for the warranty. Most local roofing contractors cannot keep up with the sheer amount of the repairs needed to fix errors for free under the warranty. They can bankrupt quickly, leaving customers without a warranty.
