Rilrock Roofing & Construction, Inc. BBB Business Review
Roofing Scams
There is probably nothing that attracts scam artists faster than disaster, and unfortunately the roofing industry has it share of shady characters. One goal of RilRock Roofing & Construction is to eliminate as many as possible.

Here are just a few things to be aware of:

1. Paying money up front: Never give any contractor money for work not done, or to buy materials. Any reputable contractor has a supplier that will work with them.

2. Substantially lower bids: Your insurance company will determine the cost to complete your needed repairs. If you find a contractor who will do all the work on the insurance estimate for less than what the insurance has agreed to pay, this lower price now becomes the FINAL price the insurance company will pay and you will not have money left over that you get to keep.

3. Submitting two invoices: One to the homeowner and one to the insurance company at an inflated price – This by any definition is insurance fraud and is illegal, and from time to time is prosecuted. If you decide to use a contractor willing to do this don’t be mad if you get cheated. You knew you were dealing with a crook from the start. FYI, If a contractor tells you he will leave money in your pocket, 9 times out of 10, submitting 2 invoices is how he’ll do it. Even worse is that he probably won’t tell you what he’s done, so he has involved you in his insurance fraud without you even knowing it.

Be cautious and aware. There are reputable companies to choose from that will do exactly what they say they’ll do. RilRock Roofing & Construction, Inc. is definitely in that group. We are and always will be Family Owned & Operated.

One last thing to consider regarding this part of your claim and needed repairs: How often have you known an insurance company to overpay for anything? Regardless of whether you’re dealing with an auto claim, medical claim or homeowners claim, you just don’t see an insurance company overpaying, so how can you expect a contractor to do your work for less than what your insurance company says they will pay. Either the contractor has to take shortcuts and/or use lesser quality materials or they have to pull the wool over someone’s eyes, either yours or those of the insurance company.

At RilRock, we have worked with just about every insurance company around and found them to be more than fair when it comes to paying storm claims. We make an honest living without having to find a way to cheat the system or the customer. It may sound cliché, but we just want an honest day’s wage for an honest day’s work.
