If you’re training to become a roofing contractor or are already a contractor setting up your business, you should know what awaits you in your career. Most roofing contractors start on a high net, but the challenges along the way become too hard, and they drop off the course. Dmitry Lipinskiy understands this all too well, having been in the construction industry for more than 15 years.
He has some insight into what new roofing contractors should expect on their journey.
Lipinskiy describes that roofing contractors go through five phases in the first ten years, which determine their careers. The first stage is the honeymoon stage, where the contractor makes their first big money and thinks that everything is smooth sailing. In the second stage, called testing, you’ll start facing challenges such as low job supply and inadequate resources to get the job done.
In the third phase, roofing contractors go through growing pains and have to make sacrifices for their careers. This is the point where most contractors give up. In the fourth stage, the process seems better, and you start to see the fruits of your work. In the final phase, you’ll be a leader in your business, with the prowess to satisfy customer demands. Whichever phase you’re going through, push on to grow your business.
