Storms and severe weather can take their toll not only on your home, but also on your state of mind. Unfortunately, there are unscrupulous people who will try to take advantage of your vulnerability after a huge disaster just to make money. These scammers are known in the roofing industry as storm chasers. These are usually unlicensed and uninsured “contractors”.
Roofing materials affect the overall lifespan of roofing systems, but installation can also affect how long it lasts. This is especially true for steep-slope roofs, which are trickier to install than other roofs.
