Snow Stoppers – Advise Your Customers!

Here's a story that happened to me just recently. I installed a roof window during the summer, in a brand new metal sheet roof covering. I suggested to the guy that we also install some ice and snow stoppers, knowing that - especially with metal sheet covering - things can get nasty during the winter. But the […] ↓ Read the rest of this entry...

Creating Your Business Identity

Customer perceptions are the realities of your business world: if you are perceived as being professional, neat and organised, that can then become the assumption. By the same token, if you have no identity, then you can be taken for slapdash - regardless of whether that reflects the reality or not. So building a decent business […] ↓ Read the rest of this entry...

Clearing Out the Gutters – Don’t Leave It Too Late

Just a brief post here (but an important one nevertheless). As we enter the autumn and winter months, it'd be worth mentioning to your customers that they would be well advised to make a quick inspection of their roof windows. And though roof windows in general require hardly any maintenance, it’s a good policy to […] ↓ Read the rest of this entry...

Starting Out in the Roofing Trade

As a kid, my uncle was a builder/roofer/decorator – well, anything really… So at weekends and school holidays I would generally spend my time working for Uncle Tony - clearing up, carrying bricks, block and slates or tiles. It was hard work, but I enjoyed it (mostly). When I left school, I carried on with […] ↓ Read the rest of this entry...

Engage Your Employees – Add Value To Your Business

Recently I came across one interesting article closely connected to the subject I raised in one of previous blog posts about drinks and drugs on the roof. One guy soon after being hired as a managing director of one big production plant heard rumors that among employees there are quite a lot of people who […] ↓ Read the rest of this entry...

Blinds Are Not Your Priority? They Can Give You More Than You Think

Some roofers I know don't really care about blinds that much. I think they're wrong. First of all, if you do it with the roof window installation, you get extra cash for only 6 minutes extra work. Secondly, now that you can order quality blinds that will fit virtually any window all from the same manufacturer, It is just so simple. […] ↓ Read the rest of this entry...

Thank God It’s Monday – Things Every Roofer Must Know – Part 1

I've decided to start a short series of posts addressing things that every roofer must know. When you have finished the roof you must spend many hours cleaning up the area around the house. You should employ a CSI forensic unit to check that there is absolutely no evidence that you were ever there. After […] ↓ Read the rest of this entry...

“We’re Getting Other Bids” – How To Overcome This Whilst Sitting With Customer

I believe we all have a pitch sales attack :) when it comes to our customers... I am a “two-sit” guy, which means that I would usually take two meetings with each customer: Meet and Greet, when I walk around and look at the job with the prospective customer, measure it and give them some references.
