Calgary recently experienced a massive flood unlike anything I’ve ever seen in all my years living in Calgary. The bow river flooded thousands of homes and most of downtown. It was crazy watching it all over the news.
Here’s a clip of it on YouTube:
After all this flood damage it is safe to assume that many people in Calgary will be looking to hire a flood damage repair company to help them get their home back in order so they can live in it again.
The first thing you should do is post your job complete with pictures on Local ConneXtion. It is absolutely free and will let you get bids from companies in Calgary. Plus, as you talk to companies you can send them your URL of your job for them to see all your details (save you a lot of time).
Do you need to get your roof repaired or are you looking to get a new roof? Traditionally, you would spend a lot of time calling different Calgary roofing companies and asking them to give you a quote. The problem is how inefficient this method is for both you and the company you are calling.
How do you stay organized with the different roofing estimates? How do you communicate with the roofer after he leaves the quote? Do you call him back? What if he doesn’t answer the phone? And what if the roofer is too busy to even swing by to see your house?
Wouldn’t it be better if you could upload your job once complete with a title, description, and images and get roofing companies from Calgary bidding for it? The best part is that the roofing company can see your job from the pictures and give you an estimate. Only after you see the estimate do you have to give him your address (the serious stage) for them to finalize their bid. And all the estimates are organized in a central admin panel, plus all your communication stays in one place on message board.
