BusinessInterviews.com: How do you separate yourself from the competition?
Stan: We have always made an effort to conduct our business as if we were a small roofing company. What I mean by that statement is we want to give our customer meaningful special treatment. I think we succeed with that goal from the time they first contact our office until we collect their final check.
We also attempt to stay in contact with each of them after the project is complete with offers of various types of tickets to events in our city.
BusinessInterviews.com: What advice would you give to someone who is currently shopping around for a roofing company?
Stan: Do your homework. Get a third party recommendation from someone you trust if possible. At GAF.com you are able to enter your zip code and the Master Elite contractors in your area will populate your screen. You will see how each company’s customers rate how well these contractors performed for them. These reviews are sought out by GAF, not the contractor. They have real meaning to our customers, GAF and us.
BusinessInterviews.com: What are some tips for preparing and protecting a home against severe weather and the damage it can cause?
Stan: We are in Oklahoma where hail and tornadoes present the ultimate problems for protecting your home against storm damage. But there are ways to make it harder for these storms to impact your property. We offer many shingle products that are Class 4 and impact resistant. Installing these products could also save you money on your homeowner’s insurance premiums. To protect against high winds, we install GAF ProStart under the first course of shingles. This revolutionary product has all but stopped shingle blow-offs in winds up to 110 MPH. We also make it a priority for our crews to properly nail the shingles in the designed position. Never high and never low, but in the perfect spot. We are old school in how this is done, we only hand nail our shingles. It makes a proven difference.
BusinessInterviews.com: Can you expand on the significance of attaining the Master Elite designation from GAF, the largest shingle manufacturer in North America?
Stan: Easily the most important element of our business plan is our designation as a GAF Master Elite Contractor. GAF has vetted every aspect of our business and determined we are in the top 2% of all roofing contractors in the United States. We are in the big leagues so to speak. GAF demands their Master Elite contractors be financially sound, use trained roofers in all aspects of roofing, adhere to all good business practices associated with the best of the best, and use the best materials on every roof we complete. These are peace of mind attributes for our customers. They also find that we never cut corners on the way we roof their home.
BusinessInterviews.com: What are some trends in the construction industry that you’re excited about or think that our readers should be paying attention to?
Stan: I can think of two in particular. As mentioned earlier, we now have available to the customer a set of shingle products offering high wind resistance as well as impact resistance, as outlined by Underwriters Laboratory. Installing these products on your home will offer enhanced protection against severe storms. The second trend is to build your home with materials and construction techniques that give it the designation of a Fortified Home. The Insurance Institute for Business and
Home Safety outlines this affordable building technology that is becoming the norm in tornado and hurricane prone areas of the country.
BusinessInterviews.com: Can you share how the business has evolved since first launching 20 years ago?
Stan: Without question the Internet has been a revolution to our business, and with that, women customers are in the forefront of our marketing focus. The Internet is the principal way we communicate with our next customer as well as our past customers. Customers, women or men, want to know about you before they call you. Having a website is not the end all, however. When a potential customer searches for a roofing contractor, we want them to find Majestic Roofing Oklahoma among the hundred of roofers in Oklahoma City. NEWSOK helps us achieve this with their staff of professional Web Optimization and Marketing Specialist. One thing that has not changed in 20 years is the way we install shingles. We still install one nail at a time with an old fashioned, hand- held hammer.
