Protecting Homeowners: Understanding Senate Bill 76 and Roofing Insurance Claims
Write By Zachary Duncan
In recent years, homeowners across the nation have faced a growing issue with storm chasers who exploit vulnerable situations to solicit roofing insurance claims. To combat this problem, Senate Bill 76 was introduced to protect homeowners from deceitful practices. This landmark legislation prohibits companies from soliciting roofing insurance claims and provides much-needed relief to residents who have been targeted by opportunistic storm chasers.

Senate Bill 76 And What It Means

Understanding Senate Bill 76

Senate Bill 76, a crucial piece of legislation for homeowners, addresses the unethical practice of companies going door to door convincing homeowners to allow them to pursue insurance claims on their behalf. The bill is designed to protect consumers from falling victim to fraudulent practices and ensuring that the process of filing insurance claims for roofing repairs remains transparent and fair.

The Impact of Storm Chasers

Storm chasers are often unlicensed and unregulated and have been a problem in the roofing industry. These individuals or companies exploit homeowners after a severe weather events, promising quick and easy solutions to repair or replace damaged roofs. By soliciting insurance claims on behalf of homeowners, they often manipulate the system to maximize profits. This leaves homeowners with below standard repairs and legal complications.

Why Senate Bill 76 Matters

Senate Bill 76 helps regulate the roofing industry. Granted, the roofing industry does have some government oversight, but there are companies that are still operating the same as if there are no laws in place. The idea behind Senate Bill 76 is that they (roofing contractors) cannot come door to door soliciting for a roofing insurance claim. If there were no laws in place, a lot more homeowners would have fallen for the “storm chaser” hustle. We at Dubo Roofing try to emphasize awareness and provide education to educate homeowners about rights and what Senate Bill 76 protects them from.
