BBB: Beware fly-by-night storm-chasing contractors

Here we go again with another Kansas storm season. As surely as night follows day, storm-chasing contractors can rain down on your neighborhood. Storm chasing is a multimillion-dollar industry.

Using teams of out-of-state installers and trained salespeople, they often go door-to-door through storm-ravaged neighborhoods looking for quick work.
