Hello. I am new to the boards but I have been reading for a while. I am not a roofer, nor do I own a roofing business. I am currently in the gutter business. However, I have been around the remodeling world pretty much my whole life. My father owned and operated a sucessful roofing business and now the gutter business.
I am looking into opening a remodeling supple company in my area of Pittsburgh, Pa. I just have a few questions that I would love to have answered if you do not mind.
If a new supply company opened near you would you try it or just stay where you are currently getting your supplies?
What would it take for a new place to get your business? Are you guys looking for anything specific in a supply business? Obviously lower prices would catch your eye. Anything else besides good customer service and prompt timing?
Where do you generally get your material? Lumber places, HD, Lowes, or an actually remodeling supply company?
Thanks alot guys! This goes for gutter material (full rolls of coil, partial rolls, cut and drop, and everything else), siding, trim coil, windows, and roofing.
Again, thank you for your time and I hope I am not getting to personal.
