One contractor I know would walk around the more affluent neighbourhoods, looking for things that he could fix... broken porch steps, walkways, roofing, etc.
Then he would go to the door, tell the homeowner that he noticed the problem, what might happen if the problem wasn't fixed (eg. Insurance companies cancelling your insurance if the roof is in disrepair) and ask for permission to quote the homeowner on the job.
He had reasonable pricing and he worked steadily.
