Every roofer I talk to lately says they are booked out past Christmas and can’t even think about taking more work. And that’s great! Good problem to have, as they always say. But I can’t help but thinking ,”Are your paychecks or bank account reflecting you hard work?
A roofing friend of mine told me yesterday ,”It used to be 1000’s would come in and 1000’s would go out. Now its 10,000s come in and 10,000s go out.” I understand the feeling. When things get so busy, we just start scrambling. Just get to the next job, right?
I have found a better way, and it kind of fell in my lap. I started using Conklin products as part of my line up. And had a group like Choice Roof Contractor Group help along every step of the way. Right here is where most guys stop reading. And thats fine. But Ive had many times in my roofing career when I was like ,”I wish someone would show me an easier way!” You see, I didn’t want to wear a tool belt after I hit 40. I started doing coatings 5 years ago and was able to take my tool bag off a year later (38 yrs old).
Now a to of guys will argue ,”I like being on the roof!” or “I have to make sure my guys don’t mess it up!” or “Things won’t get done if Im not there!” Yes, I had to work those things out (post for another day), but I didn’t want to be a crooked back roofer.
If you don’t want to be a crooked back roofer, reach to me. Message me, ill give you my phone number. Even do your research and check out my profile, company FB page, and Linkedin. A guy named Ed Brown helped me get started and I’d like to show someone else. Make it a great day guys!
