|Dallas Insurance Attorney Marc Fanning says Don't Trust Repairs to Door-to-Door Help|

Dallas homeowners trying to find an available contractor for roof repairs after recent hailstorms may be tempted by the "too-good-to-be-true" deals promised by workers who arrive on their doorsteps. While they may claim to handle all the insurance claim details as well as needed repairs, these contractors far too often are untrained and too inexperienced for the job at hand, says Dallas insurance attorney Marc H. Fanning, chairman of Fanning Harper Martinson Brandt & Kutchin. "Assigning part of your insurance claim to these so-called 'contractors' could be a huge mistake," he says. "Following any type of home damage, consumers need to contact their insurance agent immediately, then work with the adjuster assigned to the claim and gather estimates from licensed, reputable contractors. Working with a 'Chuck in a Truck' can jeopardize your ability to get your home properly repaired and the claim resolved in a timely fashion."
