Vehicle damage

A vehicle in a driveway on 13th Street shows damage sustained during the Saturday, April 11 hail storm. Some "storm chasers" offering repair services can be legitimate businesses, but others can be fly-by-nights that leave local citizens helpless after they leave town having performed a shady repair or construction job, the Better Business Bureau is warning.

In the aftermath of Saturday’s hailstorm, and while Del Rioans are still reeling and trying to assess the damages caused by the strong winds and large hailstones, some “storm chasers” are trying to seize the moment and offer their construction, roof repair or home repair services, some of these businesses may be legitimate, but some may not the Better Business Bureau is warning.

Many Del Rio homeowners are finding themselves having to deal with damage from high winds and hail following Saturday’s storms. Now is also the time when unethical contractors might be showing up trying to con people for property repairs, Better Business Bureau Regional Director in San Antonio Jason Meza said.
