Company is a 13 year old well-established installer of custom seamless gutters serving the roofing, retail market, new construction, remodeling and storm damage areas primarily in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex and all surrounding counties. Rain gutters and downspouts protect buildings, foundations and landscaping from water damage. Seamless aluminum gutters make up the vast majority of the market. The company primarily installs 5” and 6” aluminum K-style gutters. (5” K-style gutters are the typical standard gutter found on a home; 6” are usually installed on larger roofs.) The company also installs leaf guards as well as half round gutters and rounded down spouts. Services include repair and maintenance of existing gutter systems, too. The company is highly profitable business with strong growth potential. 2019 year-to-date sales are 12% ahead of 2018 !!
The founder started the business in 2006 as a home-based business. As the business grew, the owner expanded into a 1,600 shop/office and ultimately into the current 4,000 SF facility. The owner feels that a major advantage over competitors is the seniority of workers. The workers are highly skilled/experienced and average approximately 6 years seniority. The 4 crews are professional and a major asset to the company. The customers are happy with the service and committed to using the company. The owner feels that a hard-working owner, dedicated to the company, can easily replace the current owner.
Their primary marketing strategy is through word of mouth advertising from satisfied customers and signage on trucks/trailers. The company does no outside advertising (other than vehicle signage). The company receives referrals from an estimated 150+ contractors. Several sales service techs follow up on the leads generated through word of mouth referrals. The owner feels that the business could grow faster by adding a salesperson calling on builders and contractors. Another opportunity for sales growth is to enhance the company’s internet presence with a more effective website and search engine optimization.
The owner estimates that sales are approximately ~80% seamless gutters, ~10% leaf guards, ~8% gutter service/repairs and 2% specialty half round gutters. The average job takes approximately 2 hours to install. The owner estimates that the customer base is 50-60% roofers, 20-30% retail residential, 10% home builders/remodelers. The customer base is diversified with the largest customer (roofer) estimated at 22% of total sales and the top 10 customers generating approximately 57% of total sales.
The owner states that the company is well positioned to grow and prosper due to many favorable conditions including a highly skilled and long tenured work force, a stable history and favorable reputation, excellent referral sources from area contractors, tremendous growth in the construction industry and repeat business from an existing customer base of approximately 20,000+ homeowners.
