What do you need in an Estimate?

Posted by Josh Strehle on 12/2/19 6:30 AM

 

We can all agree that the Estimate is an important part of the sales process. (Whether you should charge for an estimate is a conversation for another time.) There’s a lot of skill when it comes to presenting an estimate to your customer, and a lot of dull math to in putting it together. That’s where RoofSnap comes in. We’ve built our software to make the estimate process as painless as possible for you and your customer. When you’re making a sale, you need estimates that contain all the information your customer needs to move forward with you, that clearly present your value to the customer, and you need to be able to put it together quickly and easily. We’ll show you how RoofSnap covers all your bases in this week’s blog.

Posted by Josh Strehle on 6/4/18 8:45 AM

Hurricane season 2018 started 4 days early this year, with the damage brought by SubTropical Storm Alberto spreading from the gulf all the way to Canada. If you run a restoration company, then you are well aware of the damage that hail, ice,rain, and strong winds can cause to homes. Many times, your clients’ first point of concern will be whether their insurance policies cover the damage that has happened.

USA storm facts:

  • According to the Insurance Institute of Business & Home Safety, there are about 3,000 hailstorms in America each year and these storms result in losses of approximately $1.6-billion.
  • Figures from the National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies show that severe windstorms (including tornadoes and hurricanes) cause billions of dollars in property damage each year.
  • While the average lifespan of a roof is two decades, homes in hail-prone areas need to be replaced every 7 – 10 years.

As a restoration expert, there are a few things that you can do to make the rebuilding process a bit easier.
