Given the competitive nature of the roofing industry, Bone Dry was in search of a PR partner capable of showcasing that not all providers are cut from the same cloth in terms of quality, service and reputation.

The team needed help elevating brand awareness across its emerging markets, including Nashville, Tennessee, and generating buzz for new and noteworthy service offerings, all while maintaining its reputation as a top-tier, service-focused contractor.

To ensure consistent and ongoing coverage for Bone Dry Roofing, Dittoe PR utilized a media relations method called “newsjacking,” the art of inserting brand leaders and their initiatives into breaking news and trends. Dittoe PR kept a close pulse on local news cycles and weather reports to uncover opportunities for Bone Dry Roofing leaders to share their expertise on safety and storm-related preparation and damage to provide value to the community while showcasing their service offerings. Dittoe PR also utilized timely angles throughout the year – from spring maintenance to holiday lighting safety – to educate consumers and keep the Bone Dry Roofing name in the headlines year-round.

To elevate the brand’s subject matter experts and industry veterans, Dittoe PR secured bylined articles and expert interviews across local, trade and national media.

Coverage showcased the economic and sustainable impacts of solar and established Bone Dry Roofing as the go-to contractor and leader in solar installation and services.

The agency developed a calendar of relevant local and industry-focused award opportunities and drafted nominations on behalf of Bone Dry Roofing to help increase third-party credibility and endorsement. These nominations resulted in securing Bone Dry Roofing the coveted 2023 Residential Contractor of the Year Award from Roofing Contractor Magazine and a spot on the outlet’s 2023 “Top 100 Contractors” list.
