As the busy season begins to wind down more and more, drywall contractors will likely be planning for the upcoming year, many of which have the goal to improve their business. Of course, improving the quality of their business doesn’t just happen, it generally takes work and effort. If you are a drywall contractor looking to improve your business this upcoming year, you’re in luck. In this blog, we’ll share some helpful and effective tips to increase your business!


Find Work By Networking

One of the best ways to find jobs is to network with others in the industry.  Networking can be a useful and effective tool to build brand awareness for your drywall business, generate leads, and find vendors. Additionally, being active and giving back to the community in which you serve is also a great networking opportunity for your business.


Make Customer Service A Priority

Client satisfaction should be a to priority. Of course, this does not mean you need to cave at their every demand. Instead, make an effort to actively communicate with your clients on all aspects of a project. This will help ensure that both sides can be equal partners in the decision-making process. Pleased customers will lead to repeat business and great referrals.


Be Proactive Instead of Reactive

In this line of work, you cannot expect work to just always fall into your lap. Instead, you should seek new opportunities top retain and grow your business.  Constantly reaching out to the homeowners, architects, and general contractors, or other parties that may have work will help you find out what projects they have on the horizon.


Invest in Better Equipment

Nothing is more problematic for your business than faulty equipment or equipment that does not meet the requirements and specifications of a job. For example, a new drywall spray rig can provide you with the power, durability, and portability that you need to enhance productivity and quality of work. Whether you are looking at buying new or used drywall texture spray rigs for sale, it's important you that you understand how to choose the right one.


Things To Consider When Investing In A Texture Spray Rig

  • Consider A Split Tank. Split tank spray rigs offer versatility and flexibility that a single tank option won’t provide. Split tanks allow you to mix two different types of wall texture, too.

  • Don't Skimp On Price. It is tempting to purchase equipment that saves your business the most money, but buying spray equipment based on price is not a great investment in the long run. Paying more for newer equipment and quality components from an industry-leading manufacturer will not only last longer, but it will likely require less maintenance. If you do choose to look for a used texture machine for sale instead, make sure you purchase it from an authorized seller that ensures the equipment is in good shape.
