Commercial Roofing Sales Salary

roofing salesWhat can be expected for a commercial roofing sales salary? There are many factors behind what level of salary a commercial roofing salesperson receives. These points include:

  • Experience in commercial roofing sales
  • Level of sales & technical knowledge
  • A demonstrable record of sales success
  • Salesperson’s capacity for offering solutions
  • The extent and development of the salesperson’s network contacts
  • What location the roofing company is in
  • Where the salesperson will be operating out of
  • If the salesperson will be provided leads

Commercial roofing sales positions often include a base salary and a commission structure. Depending on the salesperson’s credentials, base salary can start at $35,000-40,000 and up. There are often opportunities for additional earnings potential on top of base salary. Many industrial and commercial roofing companies operate on a commission structure based on job profits, with bonus opportunities available.

How to Get Commercial Roofing Jobs

  • Longer sales cycles – The industrial and commercial roofing markets have longer sales cycles. It simply takes longer to close on jobs. However, the wait is well worth it.
  • Additional income potential can be capped – In theory, the opportunities for earning additional commission-based income in commercial roofing sales are limitless. However, in reality a salesperson have a cap on their earning potential. Commission earnings are tied to each roofing project that is sold – only so many can be sold in a week and they don’t offer recurring or ongoing residual income opportunities.
  • Lack of independence – Sure, commercial roofing sales positions can offer six-figure salaries. But it takes a lot of legwork plus many hours of traveling to maintain that income level. Wouldn’t it be nice to have the potential for a six-figure salary or greater, but with greater independence and the capacity for growing your income at your leisure?
  • Monetizing your knowledge – Over time, as a commercial roofing salesperson increases their knowledge of roofing and waterproofing, their value goes up. But their earnings potential can be limited by the factors mentioned above. There are only so many hours in a week.
