Ways to Increase Your Impact on the Community

As a contractor, you are a member of the community. You live and work in the area and have a unique opportunity to form relationships and make a difference in your neighborhood. Here are some ways to boost your visibility, position yourself as being socially responsible, and commit yourself to helping to build the local community:

Partner with Habitat for Humanity to build and renovate affordable homes for families in need. Contractors who participate receive access to special logos for marketing their affiliation with the organization.

Become a Certified Green Roofer™, a designation that recognizes environmental leaders. This program enhances your positioning as an environmentally responsible contractor. All you need to do is commit to recycling shingles and to the sustainability of your roofing business, and become certified to sell and distribute Green Roofs.

Participate in programs to bring local communities and contractors together to help families in need. Where local citizens can nominate a family in need to win a new roof. Your company can then delegate the winner of the prized free roof and continue to run nominations once a month.

All of these programs will not only help your business and increase your credibility in the community, but will make you feel good about stepping up and making a difference.
