    I don't get as good results in the winter, but its always worth keeping the momentum going in the long run.

    in my first year i canvassed right through the winter and picked up loads of work, another great help in getting extras like facias and soffit and gutter clearence is to show the customer before and after pics using an ipad or tablet and it makes the selling of your services a lot easier

    I personally say the next 7 weeks are the time to canvass your buts off, kids just broke up from school for summer so usually at least one parent around to talk to and the can see in broad daylight how cruddy the windows and PVC are.

    Whenever I am working during school summer holidays i have people coming over 'could you fit us in?'

    Prime time.
