The myth that if a company is listed with Both the BBB and Angie’s List is going to give you a better job is
not always true, it’s better to have references of houses they have done recently.
- · What ‘skills’ does your company have? Can you fix ALL my Home Exterior Storm Damage needs? It has been found in most Storm Chaser companies are ONLY able to fix your roof for damage they are NOT able to fix your seamless gutter, replacement windows Denver, awning, deck, fence etc. This is because they ARE a Storm Chaser Company and NOT a true Construction Company that is established here locally. This should be a huge stoplight warning warning!
