Opportunity Summary:

Storm Guard is the largest residential roofing and construction franchise in the US, offering quality insurance and non-insurance construction expertise and services to homeowners and business owners in need of roofing services stemming from storm damage or age. A property is only as strong as its roof. On average residential roofs need to be replaced every 20-25 years, but the impact of severe weather can dramatically reduce that time horizon. Hail alone has affected over 10 million US properties annually since 2014. Alarmingly, it can take months or years after a storm occurs for roof damage to be noticeable to the property owner, which is often too late to file an insurance claim. Many of our customers are not aware of the damage their homes have suffered until they are approached by Storm Guard! Through education and quick response following inclement weather, Storm Guard protects and preserves the value of residential and commercial assets within every community served.

In any economy, people need a safe place to raise their family and conduct business. The roofing industry is an essential, recession resistant, and growing business sector expected to reach $19.9 billion by 2021. The industry is fragmented, unprofessional, and even abusive to customers. Many roofing companies do not have permanent locations, and instead move from one city to the next, chasing storms, and providing substandard services without warranties. In the most egregious of cases, taking deposits without completing the build. In contrast, Storm Guard franchisees are local professionals who provide top quality work and act with integrity. Storm Guard's franchisees' collective vision is to empower homeowners to trust their local contractors. Storm Guard franchisees benefit from industry leading training and support, distributor and supplier relationships, weather and aerial measurement technology, task management systems for sales, production and invoicing, and the sharing of best practices from their Storm Guard family members. They are committed to raising the service level standard in the industry and back their work proudly with an industry leading 5 year workmanship warranty.

A Storm Guard owner's role is dynamic. Your candidate will build a team of sales professionals who will canvass neighborhoods, educating and selling Storm Guard's services to property owners. As their business grows, much of their work will come through referrals from happy customers, insurance agents, and insurance adjusters. Your candidate will also manage construction of their jobs by building and managing a network of suppliers and subcontractors, and eventually a production manager. Although the core of our business is in roof replacement, we also offer the following services: roof repair, siding repair and replacement, window replacement, gutter installation, painting, and emergency tarping.

At Storm Guard, our mission in simple: To become the country's most respected residential roofing company through hard work, perseverance, and acting with integrity.
