Roofing association warns about repair scams after hail damage

LUBBOCK, TX - Unfortunately some people try to take advantage of homeowners dealing with storm damage to their homes. Roofing is one of the biggest opportunities out there for scams because there's no license required for it in the state of Texas. 

That means roofing "companies" come out of nowhere after hail storms, looking for a quick buck. 

"Anybody can get a bond so you can go into business the next day, and that's exactly what happens after a storm," said Kris Kincaid, president of Lubbock Area Roofing Contractors Association and owner of Kincaid Roofing. "Like this week, companies popped up we've never seen."
