Storm Pros provided a great service with my short notice call. They repaired the roof where it needed fixing and other minor lifted areas. Case took the time to come by my home to ensure the roof was fixed prior to potential rain! I will continue to do service with them and highly recommend them.

Storm pros are excellent. Once I contacted them they were right on top of the issue. I had a leak from my roof vents and not only did they come out next day - they even went out of their way to check the weather forecast to see if we had any rain. Case was easy to work with. They ended up fixing the issue with my leak in my roof in under 30 min. Hands down the business to go to with any roofing needs.

When I sent a request for a quote, I received an immediate response. Case was able to set up an appointment within a few days and I had a quote within a few hours after the appointment. They were able to come back within a week to perform the installation and I couldn't be happier with the work. Case followed up with an inspection of the work to make sure I was happy with it and that it was done properly. I highly recommend Storm Pros!
