Experts say be careful who you choose to repair hail damage

Posted: Updated:

One estimate is that Monday's hail damaged more than 100,000 homes in metro Atlanta. Experts warn homeowners to be careful who they do business with to repair the damage.

"There are an awful lot of companies this week that are coming into town. They are setting up local offices. They are appearing as though they have been here for years.  They are knocking on doors and leaving literature. In fact they have been in Atlanta 5 or 6 days," said Mike Monk of Ideal Roofing.

Monk says responsible roofing companies have formed the United Association of Storm Restoration Contractors to help clean up the industry.

"On the website, click on the state, check your region.  There is a list of contractors and you can have peace of mind know that the contractors on that list are held to the highest professional and ethical standards in the storm restoration industry," Monk said.
