With over 5000 roofers in DFW alone, how do you know who to trust?
Are they a General Contractor or just a Roofer?
A roofer will be looking at just the roof, while a general contractor will evaluate the entire property and work with your insurance to make sure EVERYTHING damaged is being replaced by insurance. With a roofing company, you will be responsible for finding the contractors for the other items, such as windows, gutters, paint, and more. A general contractor is a one-stop shop to take care of your property.
Are they LOCAL?
Every time a storm comes through the DFW area, “roofers” flock from all over the country to make a quick buck. For a few weeks after the storm, companies from all over will be in the area, knocking on doors and trying to earn some business. The problem for you, the property owner is – How will you contact them for warranty or repair work? It is great that they are giving you that warranty on their work, but what is the likelihood that they will travel back from out-of-state to actually honor your warranty?
Some questions to ask of every company that you are interviewing:
- In what city is your company office located? Can I visit the office?
- Did you work storms here from the past couple of years?
- Do you have local references from my city that I can contact?
Are they INSURED?
The State of Texas does NOT require contractors to carry liability insurance. This leaves you, the property owner, assuming a great deal of risk. Should a worker be injured while working on your property and the company not have the proper insurance, you as the property owner will be responsible for those damages.
Do not assume this risk upon yourself. If a company is not willing to provide the necessary insurance to cover their workers, what else may they be cutting corners on?
Are they rated with the Better Business Bureau?
At a minimum, any company you are interviewing should have a strong standing with the Better Business Bureau. An A+ rating will give you an idea of how long they have been in business and how they treat their customers, resolving any issues that may arise.
Praus Construction is proud of our A+ rating with the BBB, and will continue to maintain that rating for many years to come.

What can I expect now?
With a significant hail storm coming through the area, and very likely affecting your property, there are some things you need to know.
1.) There will be a constant barrage of companies knocking on your door, from the DFW area and from other states, looking to replace your roof. This will continue UNTIL you select a contractor.
2.) Companies will “assess” whether you have damage. These assessments may be valid, or may not be, just depending on the motivation of the company.
3.) Companies will promise many things for you, some legal and some not. Always be aware of a deal that sounds “too good to be true”, with promises of no money out of pocket or deductibles being covered.

Our Customers Say
Aaron Gaunt with Prauss Construction is amazing to work with! The company is qualified and my #1 choice to refer to my clients – as a top producing Realtor it is so important to have a contractor you can trust. They also helped replace the roof on my own house- the level of professionalism and customer service can’t be beat! They kept it stress free for me, worked with insurance and handled all the details. The roof was replaced in a timely manner and everything kept very clean. I can’t recommend them enough!
This company was so helpful when we had the big 4″ hail in Highland Village, TX. I couldn’t believe what all was messed up and when I talked to Praus, they came out and explained everything so well. They helped me understand the process of getting my roof fixed and all the other damage. Decision-making was much easier. Then when it was “new roof day”, they were so efficient in how quickly the process was going and what a great job they did!!! They are so professional and knowledgeable.
We used Praus for our home construction needs after a 2017 hail storm. John from the Praus team was fantastic and walked us through the entire process…from dealing with our insurance company to ensuring we we comfortable with all of the work completed. John was available day or night (and even weekends) to answer any questions. The team did quality work and I would highly recommend Praus and John for any home construction needs.
Fantastic company. Local as well. They made the process so easy, without any worries or hiccups along the way. None of this would have been possible without Project Manager Scot Campbell who oversaw the details of the roof replacement, ensuring there were no issues. Scot did an incredible job and I haven’t had any issues with the roof since. In fact, the new roof is better than the old, high-end builder roof. I would use them again without question. Thanks!
Praus Construction representative Michael Geddie was very professional in his handling of the hail damage repairs to our home which we experienced as a result of the hail storm of March 2017. Due to circumstances of being away at the time of the re-roofing, Michael provided photos and messages via text keeping us up to date. Michael’s personal involvement with our insurance claims adjuster and us was top notch service few contractors provide. FIVE STAR SERVICE!
