Always be leery of anyone who knocks on your door uninvited offering a service. Unfortunately, there is no caller id on your door but take similar precautions. 9 times out of 10 if someone is knocking on your door,it's a bad sign. Especially in this case! San Diego Roofers don't work with insurance companies. Insurance agents will send out their own claims specialist to determine whether there is damage and if it's from a storm or possibly a maintenance issue.

These days there are a number of resources you can check to view a company's credibility. A quick google search would let you know almost everything about the company. In the case that they are not on the internet, politely say No thanks and close the door! The State Insurance Commissioner's office has this advice: never make a commitment until after you have talked with your agent or claims adjuster.
