How to Start a Seamless Gutter Business Business Overview:

If you’re looking for a business that will add value to homes and make cleaning gutters a task of the past, learn how to start a seamless gutter business. As you know, rain gutters gather rainwater and let it drain down to the ground. However, rain isn’t the only thing that goes into gutters. Leaves fall into gutters making them clog and making them a real mess to clean. A seamless gutter essentially covers the gutter with a curved piece of metal that allows the rainwater to flow down into the gutter and down to the ground while leaves simply slide right off. There are some seamless gutter products available at home improvement stores but if you’re anxious to get your gutter business started quickly and with a near guarantee of success, you should look into purchasing a franchise. A franchise will be more expensive but it will supply your business with guttering materials, installation equipment, marketing assistance and much more. Installing seamless gutters is the perfect addition to the list of services a handyman might offer or a roofing business. Since this is not a one-person operation, you will need to hire a staff to help you or to do the work for you completely. Look for individuals with home improvement experience. Purchase insurance to cover injury to your workers and damage to roofs so you are not financially burdened in case of an accident. Market your business at local home and garden expos as well as by placing flyers in home improvement stores. Contact area roofing companies and try to contract your business services with theirs. No one likes cleaning gutters, which makes this one of the most attractive business ideas available. Not only does it protect gutters and increase property values, it takes one huge item off of homeowners’ to-do lists.
