Second Place is for Winners

Being top-of-mind as the “2nd best” service provider that a prospect knows will eventually lead to a new customer. For Standard, if a potential commercial roofing and building envelope maintenance customer has a preferred vendor (the position that every service provider strives to be), that is generally their 1st and best choice. However, if and when that preferred provider is not delivering a satisfactory level of service at some point in the future, being the “second best” provider that prospective customer knows will pay off.

Proper Estimating is Critical

Proper estimating is key to a successful client experience. In Part One of this Customer Focused Success series, we look at how takeoffs, or the process of determining and then estimating the costs for the materials that are needed for a job, are a critical element of the estimating process. We also provide a few contingency examples to consider as part of the takeoff process as well as alternate material options to consider related to cost and availability.


Selecting a Roof System: The Case for TPO

There are no “one type fits all” roof systems. So, when faced with a new construction project or re-roofing an existing facility, owners should be fully informed as to the type of roof system best suited for the scope of work. Along with a pre-bid evaluation, the selection of the proper roof system is one of the most important steps owners can take to help avoid future, long-term problems. Here, we explore the TPO roof system and discuss when it's the best option for your re-roofing project.


Inspect What You Expect

We delve into Standard's proactive safety approach, centered on the principle of “Inspect What You Expect,” to safeguard the well-being of all stakeholders—team members, contractors, and customers. We explore the implementation of an innovative safety expectations checklist designed to systematically evaluate job sites, enhancing vigilance and minimizing risks.


Catch Excellence by Striving for Perfection

At Standard, we emphasize the daily pursuit of excellence by chasing perfection, highlighting the importance of not overlooking the “little things” that collectively lead to excellence. This blog highlights how to avoid the path to mediocrity and ultimately “catch excellence” in the relentless pursuit of perfection, as inspired by Vince Lombardi's philosophy.


The Power of Fair Compensation: Attracting High-Performers Increases Quality and Reduces Supervision Costs

Paying fair wages and bonuses leads to hiring higher quality staff, requiring less supervision and resulting in increased customer satisfaction and recommendations.


Life Insurance

Pride Comes Before a Fall

It is important to maintain a commitment to excellence and avoid a sense of entitlement. Business can easily fall into complacency, leading to failure if not corrected. The key to sustained success is staying focused and striving for perfection every day.
