Storm Guard is the largest residential roofing and construction franchise in the US, offering quality insurance and non-insurance construction expertise and services to homeowners and business owners in need of roofing services stemming from storm damage or age. A property is only as strong as its roof. On average residential roofs need to be replaced every 20-25 years, but the impact of severe weather can dramatically reduce that time horizon. Hail alone has affected over 10 million US properties annually since 2014. Alarmingly, it can take months or years after a storm occurs for roof damage to be noticeable to the property owner, which is often too late to file an insurance claim. Many of our customers are not aware of the damage their homes have suffered until they are approached by Storm Guard! Through education and quick response following inclement weather, Storm Guard protects and preserves the value of residential and commercial assets within every community served.
In any economy, people need a safe place to raise their family and conduct business. The roofing industry is an essential, recession and pandemic resistant, and growing business sector expected to reach $19.9 billion in 2021. The industry is fragmented, unprofessional, and sometimes even abusive to customers. Many roofing companies do not have permanent locations, and instead move from one city to the next, chasing storms, and providing substandard services without warranties. In the most egregious of cases, taking deposits without completing the build. In contrast, Storm Guard franchisees are local professionals who provide top quality work and act with integrity. Storm Guard’s franchisees’ collective vision is to empower homeowners to trust their local contractors. Storm Guard franchisees are committed to raising the service level standard in the industry and back their work proudly with an industry leading 5 year workmanship warranty.

"As a Storm Guard franchise owner, I work hard every day to build a profitable business by offering services my customers can trust. While each day is different, there are some things that I make sure to accomplish each week. This is how I keep my business on the right track.
In the morning, I often meet with my business networking group. Over breakfast, we discuss ways that we can help each other achieve our short- and long-term business goals. Then, I usually hold a team meeting with my Sales Manager, Production Manager, and Office Admin. Together, we will review all of our pending builds and any outstanding administrative needs. We’ll also go over last week’s sales numbers and our current accounts receivable, including the status of any accounts in collections.
The middle parts of each day are filled with to-dos that keep each of my builds moving forward. For example, I will often attend inspection meetings, work with an adjuster, and help clients with product selection. I also do some production prep to ensure that each build goes as smoothly as it possibly can.
In between team and client meetings, I work on my weekly tasks. One important task I complete each week is to review my open supplementing files and send off new supplements. I’ll then typically review my year-to-date budget, as well as my job pipeline and associated projected revenue. A weekly meeting with my Sales Manager might come next, to celebrate newly scheduled builds and address any client concerns where our service may have inadvertently fallen short of our high standards. I also often take a ride with my Sales Manager to meet our valued customers, putting a friendly and professional face to my business name and brand.
In the evening, I might schedule time for networking or to show appreciation to those who support my business’ success. I often meet my supplier rep at Top Golf, where we “talk shop” while relaxing and hitting a few golf balls together. After all, who ever said you can’t work and have fun at the same time?"
