Commercial roofing sales ideas


Hello. I am new to the forum and looking for some sales advice. Our company is 100% commercial roofing, 100% hail damage, and 100% insurance work. I am looking for advice from successful commercial roofers who fit the criteria that we do. Is there anything you do marketing wise, besides knocking doors? Do you contact local commercial insurance companies? Or commercial real estate agents? If so, what is the best method? Thanks!

Re: Commercial roofing sales ideas


How can you be 300% something? Are you saying all the work you do is on commercial properties and paid for by the insurance company?


Oh boy the storm chasers have hit the commercial market. Well my last hope is gone. I was hoping the commercial market would be my last refuge from my dreaded nemesis, the storm chaser... but alas, I was wrong and I no longer have a place to hide from stormers :( Makes we want to cry, my beloved career is in the poop chute now.

Anyone want to buy my business?

We don't chase storms. We only work in the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex.

Re: Commercial roofing sales ideas


Wow! What great advice. You guys are definite pros. LMBO. And Grumpy is a complete moron after seeing some other posts. What a great website. LOL. Definitely should not ask advice to people who have no clue.

Re: Commercial roofing sales ideas



Shag,
I am a Consultant, I have been posting here a few months and I believe some of the roof contractors that post on this website are the best in the business. Definitely some of the most knowledgeable in the business (particularly the one you call an idiot, maybe you used the wrong word). And although you may not follow the same business model as them it really says something about you when you make a comment like that. This website is for contractors who are looking to install a quality product and for those who would like some opinions from other roof contractors. I have seen some of these guys write out LONG messages to help other contractors that they donít know with no other reason than spreading the practice of proper roof installations. Stick around if you want to learn about commercial roofing, there are some real Pro's here.
