My town had a major hailstorm in 2003 and then another in 2006.
These storms literally hit just about every house in my town.
I feel like about 10 years worth of business was basically “soaked up” by these two storms. I mean everywhere you go, you see NEW roofs. It seems like there is a natural cycle each year of roofs that simply need to be replaced because of age… but now thousands of people got a free roof from mother nature and their insurance company.
Don’t get me wrong, our company did VERY well as a result, but now things are SLOOOOOOOW. I know that the construction industry as a whole is slow right now, but have any of you others ever felt that black hole that is created by a local storm???
We also do siding, windows, gutters, etc…and recently we have been bidding other general jobs to try and stay busy. It is a constant day to day struggle to keep all my men working.
Anyone have any thoughts, suggestions??
