Hurricane Michael was one of the most intense hurricanes to strike the Florida coast since Andrew in 1992. It was also the strongest to ever strike Florida, crashing into the Panhandle and destroying Panama City and Mexico Beach on October 10, 2018.

Joey Harsdorff spoke to an interviewer about the area around Panama City, “It was total devastation. Just flattened. It looked like old pictures of World War II, it was that bad. We got to work right away, doing what we could."

“It is unfortunate” the roofing company owner explained, “that not all of the work crews were there to help. Some contractors will take advantage of property owners during times such as this, when the owners are worried, scared and vulnerable to price gouging and inflated rates. If you speak with a contractor about making temporary and/or permanent repairs to your home or property after a hurricane or natural disaster, there are some tips which we provide on our website to avoid scam artists and dubious quality work.”

His suggestions include:

● Beware of door-to-door contractors who are looking to take advantage of homeowners after mass disasters.
● Seek referrals and check credentials to make sure that the contractor is licensed with the State, operates a reputable business, and has valid insurance which will not expire before the job's completion.
● It is wise to seek legal counsel before signing anything.
● Get estimates and contracts in writing.
● Do not pay more than 50% up front and retain proof of payment.
● Be sure to contact the insurance carrier before committing to repairs.
● Know which temporary repairs are required and authorized by the carrier.
