What does your business do?
Complete residential and commercial roof repairs, replacements and inspections.
Skylight installations as well.
When and why did you start the biz?
Michael and Eric started Patriot Roofing & Construction LLC to escape the
corporate roofing World and because they saw the negative effects that
unresponsive or sloppy roofing contractors have had on their industry
How Many People are in your Company?
Where's your office?
We have one materials shop that hold and stores the trucks and supplies, and
another office in a brand new office building in Draper, Utah.
What's the toughest part of running your biz?
Keeping up with all the work we have. We started using this SEO agency about 12
months ago and our website and calls have gone through the roof. It's a good
problem to have, but it is still a problem trying to make time to hire quality people.
What's the most fun part?
Helping people. Plain and simple. It feels great being able to leave a jobsite in
better condition than we found it!
Anything you would have done differently?
We should have started marketing sooner. We waited a long and even though it all
worked out in the end we left a ton of business on the table.
What's next on the horizon for your biz?
Continued growth and expansion into every town in city throughout the great state
of Utah! Our site is continuing to grow and expand, so is our staff!
What advice do you have for others?
Put off actually taking any money for yourself until people know who you are.
Delay salaries until your marketing is solid!
How do you use Idea Cafe to help your biz?
I look forward to being able to interact with and learn from others on the platform.
If there are any other roofing contractors here I will make sure to read their profiles
and see what lessons I can pull out of them, just like I hope people will read this
submission and take something from it as well.
School (where, still in school, degree)?
School of Hard Knocks :)
Prior jobs or business?
None, first real one!
What are your pets' names?
Do any of these pets help with your biz?
Is there any one person or event in your life that led
you to go into business for yourself?
My family members were all in business for themseleves so I grw up in that
Anyone you publicly want to thank?
