Technology Helps Contractors Seal the Deal

Special iRoofing Offer for MRA Members

As a premium contractor installing premium roof products, you’re no stranger to the expectations of demanding clients. A metal roof system is one of the largest investments a homeowner will ever make, and they have the right to expect full peace-of-mind when making their final decision. From the first impression you make, to your ability to answer homeowners’ questions and help them make the right decision, much of this work is done before you even grab the ladder from your truck.

According to Forbes Magazine, most people form a first-impression within three to five seconds of meeting you, and creating a positive first-impression is far easier than trying to salvage a negative one. According to research, a contractor who comes to the door with a tablet in-hand appears more “put together.”

What’s the best way to improve your presentation? By incorporating new technology.  Homeowners today have become familiar with the added benefits of technology and expect professional contractors to know the same thing. Recent data from Pew Research indicates that 50% of seniors feel that businesses who don’t incorporate new technology are at a major disadvantage. This demographic includes some of your best customers.

If you’re selling a premium roof product, you need premium tools. iRoofing is the “one-stop shop” application to satisfy the needs of demanding contractors and homeowners alike. Approach your clients with a tablet in-hand containing everything you need to measure, estimate, sign contracts, and sell the job. Help your clients make a confident decision by using the Roof Simulator, which allows you to take a photo of their home and show them how a variety of products and colors will look on their own roof prior to installation. Confidently present your business using before-and-after photos, customer testimonials, and more. Simply put, if you want to save time, make more money, and grow your business, iRoofing is the solution you’ve been waiting for.

A number of contractors have great things to say about iRoofing:

“We are very excited to join the MRA.  We know that the residential metal roofing industry has grown substantially over the last decade and most of that growth can be directly connected to all the work the MRA has done educating homeowners and roofing contractors about the many benefits of residential roofing.  We believe our product is something that MRA contractors will find very useful in growing their roofing business,” states Oded Shemla, co-owner and co-founder of iRoofing.org.

MRA’s Ancillary member program provides an opportunity for suppliers to the metal roofing industry to support the only consumer-facing marketing program in the metal industry. “Our ancillary members understand that the demand created by the MRA’s marketing program has a ripple effect throughout the supply chain.  More metal roofs means increased sales for all the companies along the chain,” concluded Hippard.
