Many of today’s roofing contractors don’t start out as business owners. Instead, they begin their careers as tradesmen and gain experience in installing and repairing roofs. As they work under more experienced contractors, they gain all of the skills required to install roofs professionally, but they may not gain the kind of experience needed to run a successful business on their own.
Still, the best way to progress in the roofing industry is to branch out and start your own small roofing business.
As you do so, you need to be aware of the legal aspects of business ownership and daily operations. A small business lawyer can be helpful, but you can also rely on guidance from more experienced contractors.
