On Wednesday evening, the City of Blue Earth experienced a severe storm that brought with it heavy hail.
Following the storm, the City has seen an influx of contractors from all over the state offering free inspection and estimates on damaged roofs.
The Blue Earth Police Department warns residents that if a contracting company stops at your home offering you a free estimate and inspection, do not sign anything until you have notified your insurance company and an insurance adjuster has paid you a visit. Many companies offer free inspections but hidden in the fine print is a fee to be paid by you if your insurance company rejects the estimate or if you hire another company, making the inspection not free.
The City of Blue Earth does not endorse one company over another, some of the companies are very reputable, others are not.
