To help contractors navigate business during these unprecedented times, GAF has created a dedicated hub of information and resources for contractors on its website. As part of its larger COVID-19 response page on www.GAF.com, contractors can access a number of digital tools and resources as they continue to serve homeowners while maintaining the required social distancing protocols.
“Roofing is an essential business and during these trying times the last thing a homeowner wants to worry about is struggling to have repairs made while adhering to necessary social distancing guidelines,” said Bobby Fischer, Vice President of Contractor Programs at GAF. “This information hub provides contractors everything they need to continue to do business and allows them to pass on a little peace of mind to the homeowner.”
With this digital toolkit, each step of the roofing process — from the initial consultation to installation — can be done while respecting the social distancing practices that protect crews and customers.
Through this new page, contractors can access a number of different digital tools to assist in each step of the process, such as:
· Aerial roofing measurement software using GAF Quick Measure for an aerial roof report before even meeting with a property owner (Residential contractors can also access GAF e360 which enables contractors to engage a homeowner with an interactive 3D model of their house)
· Downloadable brochures and proposal folders that can be shared digitally with homeowners
· A list of recommended apps, as well as tips for effective video presentations and best practices for virtual conferencing
· Payment and financing solutions through GAF SmartMoney, including special rates from Green Sky, a GAF financing partner
Additionally, the GAF CARE team has expanded its virtual training platform with more online training and educational webinars to help contractors and their teams keep skills sharp during this time. The calendar of events is updated regularly and classes are available in English and Spanish.
“We all share a common goal: to get through this challenge with safe, healthy families and businesses,” said Fischer. “Making these resources available for contractors will only help better protect what matters most to us all in the long run.”
