      We can talk about this on the phone if you like. I am a no pressure guy, you either like the program or not. I have a small net work of quality contractors I refer. I need a contractor in Charlotte and have a way of picking up business there for a company that comes on board.

    do you think its wise to offer free roofing estimates or to go ahead and charge for those?
  16. Bob
    April 19, 06:18 Reply
    Free Estimates have been the practice in the roofing industry, for as long as I have been around and I don't see any changes in the future. There are contractors that charge but I never did quite honestly for fear of not getting the calls. I think the public expects free estimates but does not realize the effort and cost it takes to provide it.

    Hey great post, a good idea is to install a quality gutter guard to protect your gutters and prevent your gutters and down pipes getting blocked and rusting out your roof, gutters and down pipes.
