TCF647: Contractor Q&A – “How to Get Remodeling Jobs by Door Knocking?”

In this episode, Tom and Dan address the question of a contractor who is losing jobs due to labor shortage and a remodeler seeking advice on how to approach homeowners by door-knocking for remodeling jobs.

In this episode, we talk about… 

  • Question 1: Due to the labor shortage, I am losing jobs. I have placed job ads but have not yet heard back. My clients seem impatient upon discovering this fact and are unwilling to wait that long for the job.
    • On the surface, it is a labor issue, but it is really a sales issue.
    • Make the client see yourself as their best choice by digging into their motive and utilizing their emotions.
    • Be honest with your client about your busy schedule.
    • Consult the client about going third-party


  • Question 2: How should I approach homeowners to remodel their interiors when I door knock or canvass them?
    • Door knocking will not work for a remodeler.
    • You’re unlikely to meet the right client when you knock on doors as a remodeler.
    • The door-knocking method means you’re now up against a battle where you must create interest, build rapport, and a sales opportunity against someone searching for kitchen remodeling on Google.
