It is remarkable how many people come together to help each other in time of need. We recently needed our roof fixed over here in El Cajon and unfortunately it just wasn’t the best time for this situation to happen but with all the rain we’ve been experiencing this year, it had to be done.
We are very fortunate that the owner of El Cajon Roofing is one very nice person because he was willing to do a trade with us for our digital creation work in exchange for his roofing services. So we were able to repair the holes in our roof that were causing leaks into our attic and our ceiling. Thank the lord too because we really needed it as you can see from the picture, we recently had some major work done on our roof and we needed these renovations done for a long time by looking at the house of the roof in the picture alone! You should have seen the inside, but on the other hand, I am really glad you didn’t!
I just wanted to do a quick shout out to El Cajon Roofing for being there for us in time of need. I hope that the good will is returned to him and his business ten-fold for helping us out tremendously. Local business owners such as myself and the owner of El Cajon Roofing in Southern California really need all the help we can get because it is not easy as most people think. Actually, owning your very own business can be rather difficult at times.
There’s management and leadership that needs to be done, and people almost always end up despising the leader because he must make changes and sacrifices of his “good person” look for the betterment of the business. This is something we have been experiencing lately and it is just astronomical the amount of time and effort you can spend on your business to only see minimal changes.
People have to “give a crap” and over here unlike the roofing services that El Cajon Roofing company in El Cajon provides. His roofing contractors in El Cajon are very well trained and they are on board with the owner’s vision and passion. I think he has a deal worked out with them some how whereas they are paid based on the work that they do, and pay the owner for licensing. Either way, the business model just really seems to work for all parties of the business and he has seen a pick up in business over the past several years.
So once again, we are thankful to El Cajon roofing and roof contractor services for being able to give us quality service on a trade basis and showing us what leadership and a great business model really means in 2015. As you can see from the picture we have posted, our building really needed the extra help to make it more efficient because it was really hurting beforehand.
As we all move into 2015, I hope we just remember to possible be a little bit nicer to the business owners that you meet with on a regular basis, the cab driver who picks you up possibly, or even the tech support guy who answers on the other end of the phone with a bad accent. They are all people too, and it doesn’t matter if you work in digital processing and graphic design, a roofing business, or something else along those lines, they are all still real breathing people.
Post-work, our roof is working great. We’ve been sheltered from the rain and will hopefully not suffer any more water damage to our ceiling or the objects in our attic. The roofing work done by the contractor seems very solid and like it will last a long time. It’s nice they didn’t skim work because of the trading option we opted for, it will help us both a lot in the long term as we will be managing their digital templates from now on and they’ve built a roof for us that will last for a long time.
If you’re out here in El Cajon area and need some roofing work done, definitely reach out to them and I’m sure they will be able to meet you somewhere in the middle that is comparable or better to the other roofing services out here in El Cajon.
