There are many benefits to purchasing a seamless gutter machine for your small business. Some are obvious – such as no longer having to wait for gutters to be delivered to your job site – while others are not so obvious – such as the ability to increase your company’s overall net profits. Today we are going to look at the biggest benefits, which may aid you in deciding whether to purchase a gutter machine for your business.
No More Waiting for Deliveries
An exterior modeling job is not finished until the gutters have been placed. They are the last item to go on and waiting around for another company to deliver those gutters can increase the amount of time before you are paid for the contract. If there is a delay, through no fault of your own, there is also a delay in your payment, which leaves your company with that much less money for however long it takes.
When you own a seamless gutter machine, however, you can create the gutters on your own, at the job site. The only delay in payment is the amount of time it takes you to manufacture and install the gutter system.
Cheaper Cost Per Square Foot
When purchasing gutters from another contractor, your price per square foot includes not only the materials but also the upcharge those professionals add-on, so they make a profit. This may not be much expense per project but can significantly add up over time.
Once the cost of your machine has been balanced out through profits made, your only expense for gutter jobs is the materials. When those materials come out cheaper per square foot, your business can
pocket more profit.
Ability to Take on Retro-Fitting Jobs
With a gutter machine in tow, your company can take on retro-fitting jobs for existing structures. This opens your available market considerably because you can fit pieces which will exactly piece together with the existing gutters.
Alternatively, you can also take on retro-fitting jobs which require an entirely new set of gutters at price customers are willing to pay. Often, when the job is only for a new gutter system, the upcharges for your company added to the upcharges from the gutter manufacturers makes the total cost much more than the client can pay.
Create Gutters for Other Contractors for More Profit
To further increase profits, as well as negate the cost of purchase quicker, your company will have the capabilities to create seamless gutters for other contractors. This alone can pay for the seamless gutter machine in a matter of months, thereby increasing your net profits from the very first year.
In fact, this ability to distribute materials could be the thing which pushes your company from a tiny local business to a large retailer over the course of time. Many large companies began small and worked their way up from the bottom with one or two solid investments such as a gutter machine.
