Default Southwestern Iowa Booyah

Introducing myself to the forums.

Full-time Roofing & Painting Contractor in West Central and Southwest Iowa. Business is split about 50/50. We work in a rural area where we do a lot of work in the country on farms and small towns.

This year we have done work on houses, log homes, barns, hospitals and banks. Everything from staining, painting, and roof coatings on the paint side. Looking at ramping-up the drywall side of the business too.

My theory is: Fix the roof leak, fix the drywall, and then paint the room. Works well in small towns.

Welcome to PT.
Do you use subs for this or do you have employees? I am just curious because all the bigger roofing companies around here that advertise the painting use subs.

I do the painting myself. My wife is a school teacher, and a good painter, who helps me get/stay caught-up in the summer. The larger roofing jobs I hire subs to help.

I like your roofing motto. When you hire subs to do the larger roofing jobs do they help out or are you guys doing the work together as a team? Or are they just there to do a couple of things when you can't do them or when time is running out?
