Church Roof I bid last year
Permalink  
 


I bid a church roof last year that was good sized. But they never called me back. I drove by today and it's still dirty. I was wondering what you guys do when this happens? I'm going to mail them a post card tomorrow.

*I did follow up after the estimate. but he said that it has to go through the board or something. I've never dealt with a church before.

Go clean it for FREE, with the understanding that you will get listed in their Sunday paper/bulletein so all the congregatation knows who did it as a good will gesture. This $200.-$300. expense will probably generate several $$thousands in future business.

A good compromise is to offer to clean it for only the costs of the chemicals, with a listing in the Church Bulletin, and mentions after or before the Sermons.

Also, another good idea to remember is to be sure to ask the Pastor or Clergy if you can place at least one if not two YARD SIGNs on either end of the property facing traffic, unless they are two sided then you get the traffic coming and going.

Have them read

This Roof Cleaned for FREE...Find out how yours can be cleaned for FREE also?

Then tell the callers to round up 5 other homes around theirs and clean them all together and the caller gets theirs cleaned FREE.

Has anyone ever done a church for free before or are you guys saying thats what you should do? I've been rolling it around a good bit also what about getting a receipt fron them for the diffrence as in bid the job and tell them you will do it for so much plus a receipt for the diffrence and you could take it off for giving on your taxes? any thoughts?

i have one to do in the spring and as I have read in the posts here as Apple Roof Cleaning suggested we offered to do it for free. They promised to post me in their church bulletins for free and also mention me to all the church members when the pastor goes over the church activitys. I am sure I will recieve many jobs from this and will boost my business. I will send in some pics when I get the job done.

I remember when I was a young christian I cleaned all the windows in our church for free, which took me aprox 2 days, and I was waiting for the pastor to make me a star and tell everyone what I did, it didnt happen, your suppose to do these things for the Lord with out being asked or paid for it.

If you believe in God, just go clean the church roofs for free, don't you think God will know who did it? and possibly bless you.

Oh, by the way, the last day I was there cleaning windows my phone rang and I got a 3000.00 dollar Deck staining Job. I think I was blessed.

     We do all churches free of charge. It's not something we want recognition for. It's a personal thing for me. I do this above and beyond my tithe. It's a simple gesture that goes a long way. The majority of churches that need it are small churches that don't have a large budget, and the sincere gratitude they show for such a small fraction of my time is well worth it. It helps me sleep good at night.
