Re: What are your major pains/problems in running your roofing business?

A program that would follow the job from start to end would be nice even making it user customizable, it may or may not work. I think there would be to many variables and like Grumpy said everyone does things differently.

Look at bidding a job. Take one aspect of it.

Talking commercial here, lets talk drip edge.

Lets say Grumpy does it per foot in this price includes cleaner,primer, coverstrip,and metal. Another line Item is labor.

How ever we it different.

Cleaner, primer, and cover strip are all in separate line items since these are calculated for the whole job. So we charge X amount per foot for those 3 items. Same as the metal.

Then we have the same line items for labor one for cleaner for the whole job, one for primer for the whole job, then metal and coverstrip.

Who's right and who's wrong? Neither one of us we do what we have been doing for years.

The problem with switching is just that, we update our prices for materials and labor when needed, that can be a chore in its self. It probably wouldn't be as bad for me but make my boss who has been using the system that we have been using since the early 90's, and before that it was paper, same formulas just written. He would have a longer learning curve, something hard to find time to do when there is only two of you running estimates and we can never get a head anyway.

Now make something that would make the paper work and job tracking better/easier then yeah, wouldn't be as hard to learn.

Say forget the estimates. Once you have entered your numbers, got the job and made the work orders, really only thing that needs to be done is for the installers to report any materials they are short. Still all of this is done on paper, for us anyway.

Invoicing for me is the hard part, I hate to do it, not that it is hard or even time consuming, it's finding the time to do it.

I just don't see how everything could be integrated and work. I also don't see us hiring a data entry person any time soon either. And that is basically would be what you need.

I am open for opens and looking TBH anything to speed up the process and lighten my work load would be great.
