NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED?
How is this possible?
To successfully run an Honest Abe Roofing franchise, you might think that technical knowledge of the roofing trade is a must-have. However, that's not the case! We've designed our franchise model in a way that makes it easy for anyone to become a successful franchisee, even if they have no prior experience in the roofing industry.
Our franchise is based primarily on Marketing and Sales, which are the two most important aspects of any business. We've perfected these pillars and developed a system that ensures a steady flow of opportunities and new customers for our franchisees. But what happens when you have to install the roof after marketing and selling? No worries, we've got that covered too!
At Honest Abe Roofing, the fourth pillar of our business model is construction management. It's important to note that we didn't say roofing is the fourth pillar. As a construction management firm, you'll be able to shorten your learning curve by focusing on 4 core areas:
How do you measure a roof, when you've never been a roofer?
Gone are the days when measuring a roof would take hours to complete, requiring on-site presence, measuring tape, and advanced knowledge of roofing and geometry to get accurate calculations. With the Honest Abe Roofing Franchise Satellite Measuring Software, Abe-Praisal, this is now a thing of the past. Measuring a roof is now as simple as point, click, and it's done.
How do you determine the price of replacing a roof, when you've never been a roofer?
Calculating the price of a roof can be a daunting task. It requires taking into account multiple components that go into making a waterproof roofing system, ordering them and paying for them. This process can become a nightmare, but not with Honest Abe Roofing's AbeConnect pricing software.
With AbeConnect, all you need to do is enter the measurements from your Abe-Praisal and you'll have an accurate price for the roof in no time.
How do you order materials for a roof, when you've never been a roofer?
After you've obtained the measurement and the price, the next step is to order the materials required for the job. This process can be complicated, as you don't want to order too little and cause delays, or order too much and have excess materials that you need to store.
At Honest Abe Roofing, we have addressed this challenge by creating the Transcontinental Supply Company (TSC) exclusively for our franchise system. TSC's primary objective is to make the ordering process as simple as possible for our franchisees.
With TSC, you can use the AbeConnect measurement to upload the order through the TSC ordering app, schedule delivery, and receive the materials without any hassle. The best part is that you will receive the materials at a price that is 20% lower than what other roofers pay when they order from local supply houses.
How do you install a roof, when you've never been a roofer?
This is the most important question of all: Can you own a roofing franchise without being a roofer? The answer is yes!
Sure, installing a roof without any skill or experience can be challenging (or disastrous for some). However, as a construction management franchise, our franchisees focus on marketing, selling, and ordering while letting a partner crew provide the labor. This means you don't have to be a roofer to own an Honest Abe Roofing franchise.
Using a partner crew is a Win-Win-Win situation:
Win #1 - The Partner - They want to roof! This model allows them to do what they're good at and allows you to focus on running your business.
Win #2 - The Franchisee - You don't want to install a roof! This model ties a large part of your human expense to the cost of goods sold, eliminating the burden of a large payroll.
Win #3 - The Customer - Now two parties have "skin in the game". The partner doesn't get paid until the customer is happy, ensuring customer satisfaction.
Finding the right partner crew is vital to the success of your roofing franchise. We created HonestAbeRoofingCrew.com to help you build your partner crew database.
