Business Overview:

History
The company was founded in 2006 and then sold to the current owners in late 2015. The company has revenue growth each year. Profitability is very consistent and is ahead of revenue growth. One owner does all of the sales, estimating, and installation scheduling and has a crew of 4 people that handle installation and repair work. One owner does some office and administrative work.

Lifestyle
One of the owners works actively in the business, about 50 hours a week Mid February - Mid November. The other owner does 10 hours a week of administrative work.

Market Competition and Expansion:

There are no national home improvement gutter companies in the area. Below are a few of the most common competitors in the marketplace. Home Improvement stores Lowe's, Home Depot, and Menards offer gutter installation services. They contract with different companies to do their work and do not always offer a consistent level of service. Seamless Gutter Companies There are two other seamless gutter companies located in SE WI and offer similar services. Other Competitors Weathertight Home Exteriors, Infinity Roofing, LH Krueger and Son, and Rain Day Gutters, Windows, & Siding Co. are exterior remodelers that offer a variety of exterior service offerings but do not specialize in gutter installation and repairs. The company currently only has one sales person (one of the owners) and a crew of 4 installers. They are typically have business booked out 8-12 weeks. A new owner could hire a sales person and a few more installers to grow the business. The company drives much of it's business from Google PPC campaigns, but only spends a flat dollar amount each month. Typically the budget is spent by the 2nd week of each month. Increasing this budget along with a larger installation crew can lead to more revenue and profits. Forging new relationships with other roofing and siding contractors can lead to more referral business. Gutter Guards are a growing product line for the business. It is an add-on product that adds a small fraction of cost to the client, but is highly profitable for the business. Since they are onsite doing the gutter installation, it only adds a small amount of labor to the total installation. Their gutter guards are of a higher quality, easier to install, and are a fraction of the cost of some of the large players in the industry. This has been a key to increased profitability for the business. It is an area the new owners can capitalize on. Another service that could be a potential for growth is "Drop-Off" services. Some contractors (both commercial and residential) will ask them to make gutters and then drop them off at a location for the contractor to install. Some contractors will also hire them to come onsite and make the gutters for them to spec. This is a low cost, high margin part of the business that could grow.

Reason for Selling:

Owners are retiring.

Additional Details:

  • The property is leased.
  • The owner is willing to train/assist the new owner.
  • This is a homebased business opportunity.
  • This is not a franchise resale opportunity.
