5 Reasons to Consider DIY Wood Ceiling Systems for Your Next Project
Want to make a good impression on your next project? Consider using wood ceiling systems. Here are five ways they can enhance your project, and your business!
These days, it seems as though we’ve all become a little more spoiled. We’re fortunate enough to be able to get what we when we want it (often enough, at least) that we come to expect. But we never expect to pay more for it, right? We’ve all encountered clients who want more than their budget allows, but isn’t it great when you can surprise them and deliver? Wood ceiling systems are one tool that you can use to give customers exactly what they want without having to sacrifice your profit.
- Stretch your budget. Let’s face it. Custom ceilings are a luxury. Wood ceiling systems make them more affordable, but they are still an add-on item. Homeowners are usually willing to pay a little extra for things like this because they understand the work that is involved. Or, they think they understand. When you install wood ceiling systems instead of building a decorative ceiling from scratch, costs go way down. Bonus features like this can give you a little “wiggle room” when you’re pricing out a job. You’ll surely make out well on this part of the job, and maybe that’ll make up for another area where costs are going through the roof (no pun intended).
- Save time. We all know that time is money, and that cliché seems to hold more truth in the construction industry than almost anywhere else. As long as you have the work, it’s always better to finish one in a timely manner, so you can move on to the next. With wood ceiling systems, you save all the time you would have spent crafting the perfect decorative ceiling.
- Make better use of your resources. Imagine you’re behind schedule (it happens to the best of us) and have three guys trying to figure out why you don’t have the perfect curve on that dome ceiling. One half is right on, but the other half… ugh. Time to make some new pieces. Regardless of your chosen design, wooden ceiling systems can almost always be installed by one person.
- Wow the homeowner. Team up with an amazing designer and plan a ceiling that is so spectacular, the homeowner will think they’ll have to make an additional payment. There’s nothing quite like a satisfied customer.
Enhance your reputation. What comes after wowing your customers? Repeat and referral business! If you can exceed your customers’ expectations, they’ll sing your praises every time someone mentions that they need a contractor. They’ll gladly invite people over to show them your amazing handiwork and will liberally give out your contact information. The more customers you wow, the more advocates you’ll have out there; it’ll be like having a sales team that gladly works for free. Sure, wood ceiling systems are just one piece of the puzzle, but they can provide that edge you need to really stand out from the competition.
