How Much Money Can You Make Selling Roofs?

The basic answer is as a rule about 10% of the all out material agreement. The more confused answer is, “it depends.”

Your next question will presumably be, “Well, what amount is the normal material agreement?” The response to that question isn’t so basic since it depends on midpoints. Those midpoints will rely upon a few factors that can change from locale to district, neighborhood to neighborhood and house to house.

Here’s a couple of factors that add to the general cost of supplanting a rooftop:

Provincial Labor and Material Costs

The truth is that it is more affordable to supplant a rooftop in Dallas, TX than it is in Minneapolis, MN. Material is increasingly costly in the North. Work is paid at a higher rate in Minnesota. Insurance agencies pay the substitution cost esteem dependent on these provincial qualities.

For instance, a fundamental 1,800 square foot home that takes 24 squares with squander in Dallas may have a substitution cost estimation of $4,500 – $5,000. That equivalent home in Minneapolis could run as much as $7,000 – $7,500 for another rooftop. In case you’re relying on making 10% of the agreement, you would make as much as $250-$300 more on the Minnesota locally situated on this model.

Clearly, there’s average cost for basic items factors that must be viewed as when contrasting one area with another. Work and Material expenses are only one of the factors that decide how much another rooftop will cost.

You may not be happy to venture out to an alternate piece of the nation so as to get more cash-flow. That is reasonable. This is only a variable to think about when you catch wind of different sales reps making pretty much by and large. Possibly it has to do with part of the nation they are working.

Soak and second Story Charges

A few neighborhoods will all be single story homes that are effectively strolled on while the area over the road will all be second story soak rooftops.

The insurance agencies pay extra for second story and soak rooftops since it takes more time to finish the work and requires extra safety measures be taken by the roofers and the material organization.

Utilizing our equivalent 24 square rooftop for instance, these extra charges could add as much as $1,000 to the agreement. At 10% you would make $100 more in view of the expanded expenses related with steep and second story rooftops.

One of numerous errors I made as a newbie material sales rep was to begin working in a moderately new neighborhood that essentially comprised of single story walkable rooftops. In case you will pick between two neighborhoods, it is quite often better to pick the area with second story and soak rooftops. If not both, in any event attempt to get one of the two.

second Layers and the sky is the limit from there

Rooftops will some of the time have more than (1) one layer to detach and dump. This typically happens when the past proprietor attempted to get a good deal on their last material activity. As opposed to remove and dump the old rooftop, they simply had another rooftop nailed over the top.

Clearly, detaching a second layer is more work on the group. The insurance agency will regularly pay for these second layer tear offs and that will expand the estimation of the agreement. Now and then there will be multiple layers.

As far as I can tell, I’ve removed upwards of 6 layers on an old homestead house in West Texas. When you get to the third layer, you’re simply slackening things up and clearing the flotsam and jetsam off the rooftop. It gets genuine frightful, genuine quick after you move beyond that second or third layer.

Main concern is that more layers = more cash

You for the most part won’t discover second or third layers of material in fresh out of the plastic new neighborhoods. Consider it, they’ve most likely never had their rooftops supplanted. They haven’t had a chance to put on a second layer.

You’ll discover second layers in more seasoned, progressively settled neighborhoods. They can be hard to spot, particularly if the last material group chop back and put down new trickle edge.

Once in a while you won’t realize you have a second layer until the group begins detaching the old rooftop. At the point when that occurs, take photos of the second layer and contact the insurance agency at the earliest opportunity. The material team will get paid for the second layer paying little respect to whether the insurance agency pays for it.

You have to do your due constancy of taking pictures and reaching the insurance agency to be certain you get paid for the additional work. On the off chance that you don’t deal with this quickly, this could be one of those occupations where you make substantially less than 10% in light of the additional expenses related with paying the second layer work costs.

Commission Structures

There’s just two fundamental commission structures. Each material organization has a somewhat extraordinary commission recipe, however they’re quite often dependent on these two essential structures:

1). Level Rate Commission

By and by, I don’t care for level rate commissions since it ransacks the sales rep of the chance to get essentially more cash-flow, yet I’ll clarify it here so you can get it.

The material organization will for the most part give their sales reps a value list for all the various kinds of material administrations they give. The sales rep needs to sell the activity for no not as much as what is on the value list. On the off chance that they do, they procure a level rate commission. These rates differ from organization to organization, yet are commonly founded on a pace of somewhere in the range of 8% to 10% of the complete agreement.

On the great side, it is extremely simple for a new kids on the block salesman to realize precisely the amount to charge. The costs are unchangeable and there’s no exchange.

On the terrible side, the costs are unchangeable and there’s no exchange. On the off chance that you as a material salesman are held to a specific cost and your possibility is value shopping, you should hold strolling down the road. You will lose that deal.

In light of the manner in which substitution cost esteem is paid nowadays, there’s basically no favorable position to a property holder saving money on a similar activity as their neighbor over the road. On the off chance that they save money, the insurance agency will just diminish the measure of the mortgage holder’s second check.

Wouldn’t you rather have the choice to charge less when you have to so as to find a new line of work and have the option to charge a more significant expense that would give you a greater commission check at whatever point conceivable as well?

2). Benefit Split with Overhead Costs

This is the commission structure I learned under and it is the one I suggest today. As I would see it, a benefit split with a rate for overhead cost enables the material sales rep to get the most cash-flow.

A few people will say it is progressively hard to get familiar with the business under this commission structure, yet I would contend that you can catch on quickly when it implies you have the chance to make a few hundred dollars increasingly a week or thousands more in a month. Wouldn’t you concur?

Essentially, you procure a split of the benefits after the sum total of what expenses have been paid. In some material organizations this is 30% to 40% of the benefit. The majority of the legitimate material organizations pay their sales reps at any rate 40% to half of the benefits. In case you’re going to take an occupation paying 30% of the benefit, you’re most likely making short of what you could.

The second piece of this commission structure is the “overhead cost” or some of the time called “office cost”. In the organization I learned under, the overhead was 10% of the agreement. You can discover material organizations where the overhead is lower since they don’t have the same number of costs. I for one accept that a 5% overhead cost is progressively sensible.

On the off chance that the organization you’re working for, isn’t likewise working for you, you have to wonder why are you paying 10% overhead? Is it accurate to say that they are effectively assist you with profiting? Do they give preparing and on-going help? Do they create prompts assist you with getting into new neighborhoods? In case you’re not getting that sort of help, you might need to search for lower overhead and more prominent help.


Each material organization runs deals challenges and offers rewards. These motivating forces can add to your main concern. In case you’re working for someone that doesn’t have a reward structure, stroll into the workplace or call your supervisor on the telephone and request one. They’ll be happy to set something up, an objective for you to go after so as to get you some additional reward cash.

In case you’re not getting the infrequent reward, you might need to discover another material organization to work for. Material deals can be an intense activity when the lease is expected and your gas tank is vacant. Rewards and deals challenges can help give you the additional push to get more cash-flow and fun doing it.

Last Thought

At last, you must be alright with the organization you are going to sell rooftops for. You’ll see that in case you’re not entirely agreeable, you won’t sell a lot. Discover an organization you can trust so you can go out and get however much cash-flow as could reasonably be expected.
