One of the best things about a roofing contracting business is that they are always able to remain profitable given that people are going to need to have their rooms replaced from time to time and major storms will cause damage to housing and commercial building structures. The barriers to entry for a new roofing contracting business are somewhat moderate given that certain licenses need to be put in place in order to render services to the general public. The startup cost associated with the new roofing contractor business usually range anywhere from $75,000 to $200,000 depending on the number of vehicles acquired, equipment needs, and the number of employees will be hired at the onset of operations. The economic risks associated with these businesses are minimal.

As with any type of contracting business – most banks and financial institutions are willing to provide the necessary capital in order to launch their business operations. Of course, if an entrepreneur is looking to develop a new roofing contracting business and they are going to need a business plan that features an extensive market analysis coupled with a three-year financial plan. This financial plan should include a profit and loss statement, cash flow analysis, balance sheet, breakeven analysis, and business ratios page. Most banks and lenders pay special attention to the financial model when they’re reviewing the business plan. Beyond the financial model, examination of the local market including the overall economy, population size, population density, number of homeowners, number of commercial buildings, needy and household income, median family income, as well as any other roofing contractor competitors should be thoroughly examined within the document.

In addition to the business plan, a roofing contractor marketing plan should also be developed. This marketing plan should focus heavily on developing ongoing relationships with general contractors and real estate developers that will provide the business with a significant amount of referrals. Special attention should be paid to developing relationships with real estate developers so that major contractor contracts can be acquired in order to install rooms on new housing constructions. Additionally, an expansive online presence both through a proprietary website as well as through social media marketing should be maintained as well. Most importantly, the website should have easy access to information regarding how an individual can contact the roofing contractor in order to have their rooms repaired. Beyond an online presence, a modest print campaign should be taken out as well in regards to maintaining listings in the yellow box, and among local circulars that distribute on a regionalized basis.

In addition to the business plan and marketing plan, a roofing contractor SWOT analysis should also be developed. This documentation overviews the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. As it relates to strengths, maintaining a roof is something that only a trained professional can do. There are a number of requirements and licenses that are needed in order to provide these services to the general public. As such, or are ongoing competitive issues faced by these businesses – they are generally able to remain profitable at all times. The gross margins generated from roofing services is significant and usually ranges from 80% to 90% as it relates to service income. For weaknesses, weather can impact the business cycle of a roofing contractor. Additionally, as with any contracting business there are usually a number of other competitors within any local or regional market. As it relates to opportunities, many roofing contracting businesses will expand the number of employees they have on staff walk-on currently increasing the number of vehicles operated by the business. This can significantly boost the revenues of the business on the basis. For threats, there are really no major threats of impact the way that a roofing contracting business conducts their business operations. This is due to the fact that this is one of the oldest industries within the United States and people have a continued need to have roofs on their buildings at all times.
