Traits for Success

Being a leader is about more than just being in charge. It’s about being humble no matter the circumstance and audience. It is about being open to your employees and clients in difficult situations and it’s about being your authentic, true self every day to everyone. To be a successful leader means having respect and empathy for your team and understanding that leadership does not place you above them, but beside them in every obstacle and triumph.

Control Your Re-Roofing Experience

Starting a new project can be an exciting process. Watching a good idea come to fruition from start to finish can give you a great sense of pride in your work, and all who had a part in it. However, before the idea can become a reality, your first job is to find the most qualified contractors and verify their competency with a pre-qualification process as well as provide them with the correct information to ensure they understand every detail of the project and the part they will play in it all. Here at Standard Roofing, we take pride in our detailed process to find the best candidates to ensure client satisfaction as well as to uphold our standard of quality work and service.

The 95:5 Rule

Managing a successful business is all about hard work, determination, quality products and timely service. However, the work doesn’t stop there. Genuine customer service, clean work environments and having a positive attitude, among other things, all contribute to the success of the business as well. The 95:5 rule is a concept that 95 percent of your business thrives off of the services or products your business produces. The remaining 5 percent comes from the integrity, compassion and care your customers experience when interacting with you and your employees. 95 percent certainly trumps 5 percent, however that 5 percent is what will retain your customers’ loyalty and your reputation in the long run.

Keeping a good attitude in the face of hardship is not always an easy task, but a necessary one that will benefit you, and your business, in the long run.

3 Truths of Customer Loyalty

Customers are sometimes fickle–they like to explore new things, products, and places when shopping for the best deal. But what makes a customer loyal to a business when they have plenty of similar options? Customers appreciate a business with honest and realistic feedback as well as exceptional customer service. They want to know that they are in good hands and feel confident in your services. Customer loyalty, like your reputation, should be a key goal in the everyday operations of your business. Without it, your business will become a revolving door of inconsistent opportunities.
