The storms that struck the Dallas-Fort Worth area in Texas damaged about 30,000 homes and have brought repair work to contractors in the area. "Almost every house in the neighborhood had a different roofer's sign on it. It was a lot like a political campaign," said Glen Pierce of Glenco Roofing. Homeowners should be careful to hire only experienced and reliable roofing contractors. "Homeowners should exercise caution in hiring contractors because some who claim to be roofing contractors are going to get up on a roof that doesn't need work, [and] create damage just to get the job," Mark Hanna, spokesman for the Insurance Council of Texas, said.
