How To Spot A Storm Chaser

How to Spot a Storm Chaser

When it comes to hail damage and roofing repairs, there’s a term that you might have heard before: “storm chasers.” These roofing companies travel from place to place following severe storms to find work. They may offer quick, cheap repairs, but often their work is shoddy, and they disappear as soon as the storm is over, leaving homeowners to deal with the consequences.

Here at Brookens Construction, we take a different approach. We do not chase storms or travel beyond our normal service area. Instead, we focus on providing our customers with high-quality roofing services and excellent customer service. We’ve been serving Wisconsin’s Madison, Milwaukee, and Fox Valley areas since 2015, and we’ve built a reputation as one of the state’s most prominent roofing contractors.

One of the reasons we’re different from other roofing contractors is our experience and expertise in the insurance claims process. We understand how stressful it can be to navigate the claims process after a severe storm, and we’re here to help. Our team is trained to work with insurance companies, so we can help our customers get the coverage they need. We make sure to collect all the necessary documents and photo documentation of your roof’s damages and existing condition. Another thing that sets us apart is our commitment to quality.

Our customers are looking for long-lasting repairs, not quick fixes, so we use only the best materials and methods. We stand behind our work with a lifetime workmanship warranty, so our customers can know that we’ll be around if there are any issues with our work.
It’s important to note that experience with hail damage does not = storm chasers. When you choose Brookens Construction, you’re choosing a local, reputable contractor with years of experience. We know the area and understand this region’s specific roofing needs. With our team, you’re getting the best of both worlds: knowledge and expertise in the insurance claims process and a local presence to stand behind our lifetime workmanship warranty.

In conclusion, storm chasers are roofing companies that travel from place to place, following severe storms to find work and often offering quick, cheap repairs. Trusting us means choosing a local, reputable contractor with years of experience in Wisconsin’s Madison, Milwaukee, and Fox Valley areas. We’re different at Brookens Construction, focusing on providing our customers with high-quality roofing services, excellent customer service, experience and expertise in the insurance claims process, and a local presence to stand behind our lifetime workmanship warranty.

Michael with Brookens was wonderful to work with in maneuvering a roof replacement due to hail damage. He was very attentive and knowledgeable. I appreciated his patience in answering all of my questions. The office staff was also great to work with! Would highly recommend!

Chuck stopped by and offered to do a roof inspection. After I confirmed that the company was local in Appleton, I allowed him to go on the roof. He confirmed we had hail damage and provided a report to what he found. The insurance adjuster could see it from the ladder before going on the roof.
Chuck was great to work with and always professional, and very friendly. He helped us with our insurance claim, pick the right color shingle and gave us some job addresses that had our shingle choices installed that we coud see what the roof looks like completed.
The team of roofers arrived before 7 a.m. and were here to get the job done. Our 3 bedroom house with a 2 car attached garage and our 2 car garage in the back yard was completed by 12:45 pm. 5 3/4 hours to complete the job and do all of the cleanup. The roofing team did an awesome job. They new roof is perfect.
Brookens Construction is good company and I would absolutely recommend them to family and friends!

Brookens Construction did a roof replacement for me in June of 2022 . I met Barry who did a lengthy inspection of my roof then showed me the damage,Barry met with the insurance adjuster and got this project scheduled. A job well done from Barry to Don the project manager and his hard working roofing crew. Everything was done with Quality workmanship and materials. I was very pleased how the roof replacement went and hired them to do the roof on my mothers house. Thanks to Brookens

Brian McGuire was the salesman who came to our house the day after a hail storm. He was awesome and provided a detailed pdf report. The install crew was great. Cameron, the Project Manager, was on-site for the duration of the work and then performed a detailed review and walk-through of the finished work. Cameron was a great communicator abs kept us informed. Lastly, Ashley Cox was an office contact as we had questions leading up to the actual days the work was performed. Her responsiveness to our email questions went way above expectations (emailed back once at 8am on a Sunday morning). The entire experience with Brookens was terrific and would highly recommend them.

We initially met with Aaron and everyone we dealt with from that point on was very professional and timely. Tyler and Norman were amazing to work with, and I can’t say enough on how Norman’s crew did installing our new roof. They tore off and installed 50+ square of roofing on a complicated roof line in just under a full day because of rain in the early morning. Constant communications and follow up has been above and beyond what I typically see from businesses today.
I highly recommend Brookens construction.
