Who would you rather be: the homeowner who panics at the thought of a leaky roof because you don’t know who to call, or the homeowner who has a roofer on speed dial? Professional roofing contractors will treat their customers well, but it can’t be helped that there are those who get extra special treatment. What kind of special treatment are we talking about? We’re talking first-name basis how’s-your-roof-these-days-everything-going-well special treatment. If we’re having a special promotion or discounted offer with limited slots, chances are, these are the people who will know about them first. Need a quick fix? We can probably spare a member of the crew to swing by your place to check it out.
A professional Sacramento roofing company will treat its customers fairly, but when you’re in a pinch, it sure helps to have a contractor you can get to quickly. Build a relationship with your local roofing company. Here are a few tips:
- When you’ve worked with a roofing company in the past, remind them.
Introduce yourself and the project you had them do in the past. A simple introduction like telling them you’re from such-and-such street and ask if they remember the leak they repaired for you two years ago. This helps build rapport and introduces you as a repeat – therefore high-value – client.
- Get yourself on their mailing list. Subscribe to online newsletters – these often contain information on promotions, discounts, and more.
- Get on Facebook. Most roofing companies now have social networking sites. Find out your roofing company’s Facebook and Twitter handles to get instant updates and information.
Bonus: Schedule bi-yearly roofing inspections with your Sacramento roofing company. This is a great and valuable way to get to know your local roofers. And best of all? Inspections are free.
