TIP: Use a separate Roofing Contractors Bid Form or Roofing Contractor Bid Proposal Form like those on this page instead of a combined Roofing Proposal/Contract form. Most roofing contractors get lazy on this because they view the "selling" part of being a roofing contractor as a bother rather than as crucial to the success of their roofing business. Most roofing contractors just want to get the bid over and, to them, the "pain" associated with making one trip is better than two. The Roofing Proposal/Contract form is designed as one form combining the Roofing bid (one step) and the Roofing contract (second step) together into one trip to see the customer. Your Roofing bid presentation will be MUCH MORE SUCCESSFUL when you include marketing and sales documents like one of our Roofing bid proposal forms instead of legal documents like Roofing contracts or Roofing proposal/contracts. Keep in mind that until your customer gives you their signature, you are a SALESMAN for your Roofing business. No professional salesmen in construction worth anything would ever complicate a sales presentation by introducing "legalese" contained in a Roofing proposal/contract into his/her sales efforts. You need to show why the customer should pick your company to do their paint job because of the benefits you can provide that the competition cannot. You do not want the customer to make their buying decision based on the legal "boilerplate" your Roofing contract has compared to the other guys! After all, a properly written Roofing contract should benefit the contractor (you) and should be designed to protect your interests . . . and the customer can easily see this! Remember you are not just "dropping off a roofing bid" you are selling Roofing services to the customer and that means showing the customer the benefits you are giving THEM, not YOU!
Make it easy for your potential Roofing customer to choose you over the other guy. Our Roofing Contractor bid forms like our interior Roofing bid proposal are a great place to start! After you get the ok to proceed with the paint job then bring out the legal stuff (Roofing contracts), not before! This two-step sales process WILL SELL MORE OF THE JOBS YOU BID ON and that's what it is all about!
