    Beware of Storm-Related Repair Scams: Illinois Attorney General

    According to Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul. “We have too often seen scammers take advantage of the devastation caused by tornados or other natural disasters and use it as an opportunity to line their own pockets,” Raoul said in a statement. “People should be wary of any individual who solicits home repair or insurance adjusting services door-to-door.”

    Scammers often move quickly into communities to take advantage of people whose homes and businesses have been damaged, according to Raoul, who said these “storm chasers” pressure people into making quick and often expensive decisions about cleanup and construction work.

    Even if you need to act quickly, shop around, get written estimates from multiple contractors and don’t be rushed into a deal, he said. In addition, be sure to get the terms of a contract in writing and get a signed copy of that contract.

    If you sign a contract based on a contractor’s visit to your home, you have the right to cancel the contract within three business days, according to the attorney general. In the case of a disaster repair, if your insurance carrier denies coverage, you have the right to cancel a contract within five days of your insurance carrier’s denial.

    Be wary of contractors who go door-to-door offering repair services or “free” inspections, according to the attorney general, who advises people to ask for recommendations from those they trust, and whenever possible to use local, established contractors.

    General contractors are not required by state law to be licensed, according to Raoul, but municipalities may require permits or have other requirements. Before hiring anyone, check with your local government for information about permits and any other requirements.

    Individuals can call the attorney general’s consumer fraud hotline at 800-386-5438 (Chicago), 800-243-0618 (Springfield) and 800-243-0607 (Carbondale) to check out a contractor. Visit the Better Business Bureau’s Chicago website to see if a business is a member and whether any complaints have been lodged against it.

    If you contract with a public adjuster, pay attention to the amount of fees being charged and whether you must use a specific contractor for repairs, according to Raoul.

    Residential Roofers

    Why you should avoid Chuck-in-a-Truck" out-of-state roofers:

    At Greater Midwest Exteriors, we emphasize the importance of avoiding “chuck-in-a-truck” out-of-state roofers. These are often transient contractors who may come into an area, especially after a storm, offering quick and cheap roofing services. Here’s why choosing a local, established company like ours is crucial:

    1. Local Knowledge and Experience: We have extensive knowledge of the Chicagoland area, including its weather patterns and local building codes. This expertise ensures that our work is not only high-quality but also compliant with local regulations.

    2. Reliability and Accountability: As a local business, we have a reputation to uphold within our community. Our clients know where to find us if they need follow-up services or if they have concerns about their roofing job. This is often not the case with transient roofers who may leave town as soon as the work is done.

    3. Quality of Workmanship: We take pride in our work and aim to build lasting relationships with our customers. Our team consists of skilled professionals committed to delivering the best results. On the other hand, chuck-in-a-truck roofers may prioritize speed over quality, leading to subpar work that might need costly repairs later.

    4. Warranty and Service Guarantees: We stand behind our work with warranties and service guarantees. Out-of-state roofers may not offer these assurances, leaving homeowners with little recourse if problems arise after the job is completed.

    5. Supporting the Local Economy: By choosing local businesses like Greater Midwest Exteriors, you’re contributing to the local economy. This support helps create and maintain jobs within the community.

    6. Personalized Service: We understand the unique needs of each homeowner and provide personalized services tailored to meet those needs. Chuck-in-a-truck operators, due to their transient nature, may not offer the same level of personalized attention.
