weather triggered advertising for home services companies, roofing, HVAC and others

Hey fellow roofing contractors! We can say that because we own a roofing company as well! If we told you that everyday weather changes could be your biggest ally in the ad world, would you believe us? You already know it drives your business (to a degree – see what we did there?!). Hail, wind, heavy rain can all trigger leaks or create permanent damage to any type of roof, especially asphalt shingle systems. Well, we’ve ventured deep into the junction of weather patterns and marketing, and the results? Let’s just say, as roofers (and roofing marketers), we’ve hit the jackpot. Stick with us as we delve into this fascinating space where roofing meets meteorology in the world of marketing.

Weather patterns significantly influence local roofing demand. For instance, on bright, sunny days, homeowners are more inclined to plan for the future. This inclination isn’t just an observation. According to the Perceptual and Motor Skills journal, consumers, under the sun’s optimistic influence, lean into making longer-term decisions, like roof replacements or even significant upgrades. On the other hand, when it pours outside and homeowners notice leaks, damp patches, or worse yet, a steady drip from the ceiling, the urgency to seek roofing services increases. In fact, it’s estimated that the likelihood of homeowners searching for urgent roofing solutions soars by a whopping 20% during rain spells. Additionally, the subtle shift of seasons also drives roofing decisions. The first gusts of chilly wind signaling the approach of winter often prompt homeowners to ensure their roofs are winter-ready.

Converting these weather patterns into advertising opportunities can be daunting, if not nearly impossible. Timing, as it turns out, is indeed everything. Engaging with homeowners when they’re most likely to be contemplating roofing solutions, especially during or right after intense weather events, isn’t efficient and can be outright impossible! Try updating your budgets when it rains in a specific zip code for twenty minutes. Good luck! However, if you could automate it, It’s undeniably effective. By directing our ad budgets towards periods when roofing challenges are top of homeowners’ minds, we’re ensuring a targeted impact, eliminating the inefficiencies of casting our nets too wide or too generically. And, whenever forecasts predict extreme weather, be it heavy rain or storms, we’re all for adjusting those ad bids. This proactive stance guarantees our roofing solutions remain front and center, right when homeowners are in search mode.
