Spring is now in full swing. With it, mother nature is dealing out bad weather across the US. I would advise consumers to be aware of whom they are dealing with. Many people with an entrepreneurial spirit will be looking to start businesses up with little more than a ladder and a tape measure. While I do admire this spirit, most of them lack the experience and knowledge to do this successfully. Roofing is not an industry that one should get into without prior experience. Current legislation in most states is somewhat lax, especially Texas, considering roofing work is widely known as the most difficult and dangerous work to perform on a home or business.
According to the BBB 80% of new businesses will fail within the first 5 years.
Conclusion: There are many great companies around to do business with that have a business plan, are service oriented and have stood the test of time. I would urge consumers to seek out companies that have an office, insurance, employees, and have been in business greater than five years or see us at www.guardianexteriors.com.
