Florence Arrives, Storm-Chasers Leave
But Tri-Town is Here to Stay

With Hurricane Florence bearing down on the Carolinas and Virginia, Southwest Florida braces for an exodus of " storm   chasers ," the many out-of-state roofing contractors who descended on Southwest Florida following Irma.

Recently, ABC-TV reporter Ross Dimattei interviewed me about this phenomenon:

Unfortunately, we're hearing from frustrated customers whose roofs are half-completed by contractors who have already left town.

Roof damage caused by Hurricane Irma remains extensive in Southwest Florida. Tri-Town continues to receive a half-dozen new roofing calls per week, and has doubled its roofing crews over the past year.

Some  of the new calls for help we receive are from customers whose roofing jobs have been abandoned.

We recommend that homeowners contract with local companies that employ their own roofing crews as employees. The advantage is faster response and a quicker turnaround. Tri-Town Construction responds to customers within 24 hours and can complete a roof installation within weeks.

I also shared with ABC-TV viewers advice on contractors:
"Before you hire them, research them and figure out where they're from and see if they have any licensing issues there. Secondly, make sure you don't pay in full until the job's done ... Never pay ahead of what's been done."

We hope that Southwest Florida will be spared this hurricane season, but should a storm arrive, Tri-Town will be ready, willing and able to assist.

For all your roofing, remodeling and emergency service needs, call Tri-Town. We can help!
