Roofing Business Requirements

Posted by Josh Strehle on 10/22/18 6:14 AM

Lately, we’ve been talking about what it takes to be a well-connected, well-represented small business in our blogs. As we’ve been building our own new website, preparing for trade shows, and fighting the never-ending fight of SEO (Search Engine Optimization), we’ve been thinking about what it takes to have a good web presence. Specifically a good presence in the roofing industry. This week we’ll take a hard look at the must-haves for any roofing company to survive and thrive in the current market.




Our first small roofing business requirement is, of course, a website. Besides being an essential sign of credibility to customers, your site can be a lead generation machine when built and maintained correctly. Of course, most roofers are more familiar with Cedar Shake than CSS, but it’s never been easier to get a functional webpage that also looks impressive. Tools like Wix, Squarespace, and Wordpress put the power in your hands, but if the idea of juggling a domain and CMS is intimidating, we’ve seen plenty of services that will design and manage your site for relatively low monthly amounts.

Are you Up-to-date?

We love releasing new features. As a software company, there is a lot of work to keep our services secure, squash the occasional bug, and stay up to date with the requirements of different platforms that stay behind the scenes. Often enough,
projects that take weeks of our developers' time get released to fanfare like below.

Feature releases are the work that customers not only get to see but also use to improve their own workflows. As former roofers ourselves, giving the industry new tools is what RoofSnap is all about, and seeing how they react to those tools is usually rewarding in itself. What really takes the wind out of our sails is when we release updates that customers never see, and that's the topic of this week's blog.

Online roofing resources

Posted by Josh Strehle on 7/30/18 9:00 AM

If you were to type "Roofing" into your browser's search bar right now, your first page would likely be filled with roofing contractors. (Hopefully your own site shows up in there as well.) In fact, it's not until the second page that you even get to the Wikipedia definition of roofing, which is just a disambiguation page we might add! With that in mind, we've set out this week to pass on some of our favorite online roofing resources to you.
