Every time there is a natural disaster causing roof damage for many homeowners, roofers come from all over the state or even out of state to try to get the business. Most of the time they will tell you the local roofers can’t handle the amount of damage that has been done to the community or town, so they have come to help. This is not true and you still should not hire them.

An out-of-town roofer may try to tell you they are an insurance claims specialist so that you hire them. Just because a roofer knows how to work with an insurance company does not make them an insurance claims specialist.

The biggest reason you want to hire a local roofer instead of a roofer from out of town is in case you have warranty issues. If you experience warranty or workmanship issues after the roofer has gone back to their hometown or state, don’t hold your breath that they are going to come back and provide repairs. With a local roofer, you have peace of mind that any issues will be resolved.
