Young Contractor Drives Across the Country to Experience Conklin Coatings First-Hand

Today’s blog post discusses our invitation to contractors to work side-by-side with our mentors on commercial roof projects, as well as steps you can take today to build a successful commercial roofing business.

Contractor Travels Nearly 3,000 Miles to Work with Our Top Mentor

Maine to Montana TripFor those who want to maximize their competitive advantages in the commercial roofing industry from day one, Choice Roof Contractor Group presents all the tools and resources a driven person needs to be successful in commercial roofing. The recent example of one up-and-coming individual soon to be in our network, Derrick Taber, shows the power of what someone can do when he or she has the heart and work ethic to plunge ahead.

Derrick hails from the great state of Maine, which is located at the far northeastern part of the United Sates. He heard about the great opportunities available for roofing contractors who use Conklin roofing products, so he took a look at how well Conklin roof contractors perform and how well they do financially. After being encouraged by what he saw, Derrick became determined to learn all of the ins-and-outs of proper Conklin roofing system application.

Since then, Derrick has driven a great distance of 2,800 miles from Maine to Montana, where he is now learning the ropes from one of our veteran roofing mentors, Samuel Hostetler. He is working firsthand with Sam’s Five Star Roofing company on a Conklin roof, and will be going to roof systems training next week.

Derrick’s strong determination is illustrative of what someone can achieve with Conklin roofing products. As Sam’s story illustrates, with grit and determination one can build a highly successful roofing business – even in a couple years.

Tools, Support and Knowledge to Maximize Success

Contractor SupportChoice Roof Contractor Group offers quality-minded roof contractors the tools and resources they need to be highly successful. One portion of the many exclusive benefits our network members enjoy is our lifetime mentorship program.

We have veteran senior mentors strategically placed across the U.S. in Montana, Nebraska, and Pennsylvania who are completely committed to helping you get started. In our free mentorship program, our roofing veterans make themselves accessible through phone, texting, social media, and other platforms for answering any questions, including inquiries regarding proper materials application, closing sales, business brainstorming, or anything else at all.

Our mentors also extend an invitation for new contractors to work alongside them at no cost (even those who haven’t joined the network yet). They will show contractors the ins-and-outs of a commercial job, roofs that were coated with Conklin product many years ago that are still leak-free today, provide additional on-site expert training, and be able to share effective business strategies and insights gained from their years of experience.

Exceptional Contractor Value

Working alongside a senior mentor will be worth every bit of Derrick’s time and traveling expenses. With the skills, business savvy, and effective marketing strategies gained from the training trip, he will acquire invaluable insights for approaching building owners, building up a building owner’s confidence in him, and landing big commercial jobs.

Just the initial deposit on one commercial job can pay for all the equipment needed to get up and running. For instance, on a 10,000-square foot metal roof, with a Conklin metal roof restoration system a contractor can land over $10,000 in gross revenue in less than one week. When you think of the many commercial jobs you can land with the insights gained from an experienced Conklin roofing expert, it is clear Derrick’s trip can pay for itself many, many times over. In fact, it has been said that many roofing contractors add a six-figure income to their bottom line in the second quarter of the second year of when they first started using Conklin roofing products due to their fast application time and attractiveness to building owners.
