Hello,

Starting a Roofing and Siding Sales company and will sub out the labor.

Looking to learn from the experienced members here how to run the business..Admin/Office wise.

Welcome to CT.

I hope you are taking some business courses as well as asking for help from experienced business owners. It can be a pretty complicated business in itself.

There is lots of help available from the posters here, but make sure you are not relying just on the internet in setting up your business. A good business plan takes months and months to do correctly.

Hope we can give you some tips here and there, but the basics are up to you. Do you have any specific questions?

Thanks for the reply.

I am looking around for some courses right now, and even contemplated on taking the courses to pass for the GC itself.

I have an experienced person who will handle the sales side of it and train new salespeople. He also has his certification thru Haag. I am looking for information to handle the admin side of things. Such as once the job is bought from insurance and I have the Exactimate estimate printed.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

I would suggest that you post that particular question in the "business" threads here. Remember you will always get conflicting answers to your questions on a public forum, but most the guys here back up their beliefs with reasons.

This forum is very active and you will probably get advice right away.

Good Luck!

Hey Trying to Learn

I saw you answered an older thread. I probably mislead you a little. After you have researched the old business threads for some input, you can start a new thread with your questions.

Sorry, I said it wrong. I would have sent you an instant message, but you have to post 15 or 20 times for that to be active.

Hope you see this.
