Most owners started their business because they were the best at whatever they do. Good roofers start roofing companies, great plumbers start plumbing companies, etc. But what many owners lack on their resume before they start their own company is actually running a company. Entrepreneurs start and run companies with clear and distinct plans, and oftentimes with the previous experience of having run a company. They are also often NOT the best builder, project manager, roofer, or electrician. But they ARE the best at running their business and planning out their success. And what you’ll see is that planning and execution – and the important difference between the two, is critical to your success.
We invite you to learn the basics of different both commercial and residential roofing systems, components, and to better understand how they work together to keep your structure dry.
