Let’s get started!
1- Dress to Impress
First impressions are everything, folks.
You’re on stage from the moment you pull up to a property. The clothes you wear, the music from your truck, and even how you carry yourself all matter.
So, dress sharp, show respect, and come prepared with all your sales materials.
2- Refine Your Sales Pitch
Now, let’s talk about your sales pitch.
It’s not just about charming the socks off your clients – it’s about listening to them, understanding their needs, and educating them on how you can help.
3- Sell Solutions, Not Just Services
Remember, you’re not just selling a service – you’re selling a solution. Show your clients how you can solve their problems, and they’ll be more likely to trust you with their business.
4-Offer Something Free
Who doesn’t love free stuff? A free consultation, inspection, or quote is a great way to get your foot in the door and build trust with potential clients.
5-Give Them Options
Give your clients options. From financing and warranties to shingles and add-ons, present them with various choices and be well-informed.
6-Use References and Referrals
Word of mouth is a powerful tool in this business. Show your clients reviews and recommendations from happy homeowners to build trust and credibility. According to a Nielsen study, 92% of people trust referrals from people they know.
People like to buy from people who they feel are real. So, be yourself. Talk about your passions, your family, your hobbies. Come down to their level and talk ordinary.
8-Show Them Warranty Options
Warranties can confuse clients, so inform them about your warranties. The more information your customer has about your process, warranties, and what you can deliver on the job site, the more they trust you.
According to a report by Warranty Week, warranties can increase customer trust and satisfaction, leading to repeat business.
Roofing is an investment. So, to ease the financial burden, offer financing and pre-qualification. This can be a game-changer for homeowners who need a new roof but are tight on cash.
A study by Forrester found that offering financing options can increase sales by up to 32%.
10-Use Technology to Your Advantage
Technology is your best friend.
Drones, for example, can cover much more ground in less time, optimizing your day of knocking on doors. Plus, they’re pretty cool and can spark interest from neighbors and open the door for more business.
But it’s not just about hardware. The right software can also make a difference.
That’s where the Xpand app comes in.

It could be the game-changer you’ve been looking for.
Don’t Get Discouraged!
Rejection is part of the game, folks.
A “no” today could turn into a “yes” tomorrow. Keep a positive attitude, nurture your leads, and stay top of mind when they’re ready for a new roof.
These tips will help you excel in residential roofing sales. But remember, these are just the tip of the iceberg.
