This time we're sitting down with Martin Pettigrew, founder and CEO of Monarch Roofing (and Monarch Solar), as well as Monarch's Marketing Director Stephanie Bohardt. Monarch serves residential and commercial customers throughout the Carolinas. A GAF Master Elite Contractor and a Two Star President's Club Award Recipient, Martin is absolutely obsessed with customer acquisition. And it shows!
We asked Martin and Stephanie exactly how they consistently maintain their best-in-class status, and we got some feedback on a new GAF product they have been using. Monarch has installed a lot of our new Timberline HDZ shingles - Accuracy Made Easy! - in the past few months, and we were eager to hear what they thought. Spoiler alert: they like them!
