7 Things You Could Have Been Doing While Waiting For a Roofing Quote

Posted on: February 21, 2020

Have you ever felt stuck while waiting for a roofing quote?

It can be a real pain to sit around waiting for a contractor to get back to you. It’s annoying and frustrating.

Here at WISA, we understand that, which is why we pride ourselves on having a simple process where our clients receive their quotes much faster than other roofers.

Some quotes take forever to make it through all of the different channels before they get back to you. Our company is different.

Just in case you still decide to go with a different roofer, we put together this list with a few ideas of things you could have been doing while waiting for a roofing quote.

Clean Up Your Email and Unsubscribe

Emails can get so cluttered and most of the time all of the information in them is completely useless! Instead of just refreshing your inbox while waiting for your quote, take the time to clean it up a bit. Delete that junk folder and unsubscribe from the email lists that you don’t take the time to look at. Nothing feels better than a clean inbox.

As a bonus, it’s going to make it easier for you to receive and respond to emails from people like us!

Clean Out Your Attic or Basement

Sometimes an attic or basement can become a catch-all and you’re not even able to use the space anymore. Instead of settling for another room full of boxes and junk, sort through it! You might find some fond memories or even a few items to sell. Who knows, maybe you could fund some of your new roofing projects with your findings!

Clean Out Your Garage

There’s just nothing like the way a garage can make you feel. The smell and lighting can really take you back and bring on so many memories, times with dad working on the bike or the car. Wouldn’t it be great if you could make some of those same memories again! Just like the attic and basement, a garage can easily fill up with things that just don’t have a place. Cleaning it out might take a weekend but it’ll sure be worth it when it’s done and you can fit both cars in there again.

Start And Finish That Book You’ve Been Wanting to Read

Every year so many people say that they want to read more for one of their New Year’s resolutions. Reading is a great way to relax, learn, and unwind from a long and stressful day. Studies show that reading before bed can improve sleep habits and help you to feel more rested when you wake up.

Instead of saying that you’re going to read that book next year, get a start on it. It’ll be worth and you might be able to build a habit that sticks with you.

Binge a Netflix Series with Your Best Friend

Sometimes watching Netflix can get distracting, but you can turn it into a social event! Scope out a good time to have one or a few friends over and binge-watch a show together. You don’t have to do this with Netflix either, some people like to do it with Star Wars or the Lord Of The Rings series. Maybe not for everyone, but still fun nonetheless.

Plant a Garden

With organic foods becoming so expensive, you might consider planting your own backyard garden. You can do it in these simple steps!

First, pick out a spot – Before you can get started you have to establish where the garden is going to be. Find a spot with a good amount of sunlight and test the soil to see if you’ll need to add anything to it. After you’ve got the spot, you can stop by a local rental place to pick up a soil tiller. Use this to break up the soil and get it ready for planting. Also, be sure to pick up any rocks that you find in the soil while doing this. Stop by your local garden center and pick up some soil and seeds. If the soil at your home is good you won’t have to add anything to it but you can to help ensure that the plants have proper nutrients.

Pick up all the seeds you’d need for your garden. You might like a good mixture of tomatoes, cucumbers, green beans, and peppers. When you’ve prepped the ground and chosen your seeds, you can go ahead and plant them. Most seed packages will have instructions on the back that tell you the best way to plant them. Make sure to add the optimal amount of water and to keep up with taking care of them.

When you start to see your vegetables growing, pick them as they become ready and enjoy!

Plan a Camping Trip or Spend a Weekend Away

The busyness of life can really keep you moving right along. But where’s the fun in doing the same thing every day? It’s time to get out and have some fun! Next time you’re waiting on a quote, why don’t you have a little getaway. Plan a camping trip for the perfect summer weekend away, or catch a flight south for a good time at the beach.

Either way, there’s lots of fun to be had and it’s always worth it to get some time away.

Next time you’re waiting for a roofing quote or anything like it try doing one of these things! It’s sure to help the time fly by and get you that much closer to having your project finished!
