After recent hailstorms and thunderstorms, Charlotte's Better Business Bureau issued a warning to local homeowners: Watch out for unscrupulous roof contractors, some of whom are from out of town, angling for repairs.
We've heard about contractors going door-to-door in some Charlotte neighborhoods and offering estimates for roof damage. According to the BBB, while many of these companies might be legitimate, others are likely storm chasers offering shoddy work at cut-rate prices.
And they may have a lot of roofs to work on. One Observer employee said a roof contractor at his house said he believes there are as many as 250,000 damaged roofs in the county (of course, he has a vested interest).
Here are some of the BBB's tips (see more here)
