Starting a Roofing Business Business Overview:

If you have solid knowledge of the roofing business and you’re ready to be your own boss, consider starting a roofing business and watch your income take off. You will definitely need a bit of startup cash and a solid roofing business plan in order to succeed with this business idea, but you will likely earn your investment back—and then some—very soon after you open your business. So here’s the 411 on how to start a roofing business: First you’ll need to get a business license, a local permit, business insurance, and equipment (vehicle, tools, safety gear, etc.). Then you will want to hire trustworthy roofers to complete the jobs you win as the roofing contractor. Finally, you will want to advertise your business to keep your company and your employees happy and working well. As contractor, you will need to be the face of your business; in other words, you will interface with your customers and ensure they are happy with the job your roofers do. You will be responsible for the quality of the work your company provides.

Keeping up with business records and finances will fall on your shoulders as well, and handling employee or customer issues will be your job too. As owner, your decisions will affect the success of your company.
