A lot goes into a customer choosing which proposal to accept. Just one price mishap can throw off the bill from the initial quote and throw off your customers with a larger bill. Thus, one of the best ways you can win a sale is to ensure your clients are getting accurate estimates for their project.
Here are some easy steps you can take to avoid these hurdles and make sure you are giving your customers accurate roofing estimates straight out of the gate.
Most inquiries for a roof repair or replacement are due to some type of damage caused by certain weather conditions or just because of time. Assessing and documenting areas of damage will help when creating an estimate. This is because it prevents any big surprises that could greatly impact the dollar amount you present.
By using Jobba’s photo capturing and editing features, you can document any type of damage. You can also add annotations and notes to provide information about the work needed. These details can be relayed to your production crews and the customer, so they are completely in the loop and prepared
It’s no surprise that correct labor and material costs are important. However, the main factor that determines a roofing repair or replacement price is its measurements. Measurements can be a tricky thing to get. You have to climb the roof, exam the area and measure the entire space.
Ordering or downloading recent aerial measurements makes the process of scaling the roof much easier and less chance of containing errors. Jobba works with applications like Google Maps so you can locate the commercial site or home you are working on and obtain measurements.
Another easy way to ensure your estimates are precise is to thoroughly look at the steps your teams are currently following in the process. Ask yourself questions like:
How long is the average turnaround time?
What tools are you using?
Is your pricing up to date?
These questions will help point out any specific patterns or trends within your process that may need a little TLC.
Roofing software programs, like Jobba, offer the ability to create proposal templates that use the latest pricing models (thanks to integrations with QuickBooks), importing job/customer details and automatically produce an exact quote. These templates make it so that your roofing team no longer has to create a brand-new proposal for every sale —saving time and putting more money in your pockets.
