What does it mean to be a factory-trained roofer, and what does that mean for your business?
If you are one of our clients, you’ve seen the results firsthand. The technical prowess and precision that drives these jobs is partially due to our practice of hiring factory-trained people, or investing in that training ourselves.
So what sets factory-trained roofers apart from the rest?
Here are some things to think about as you’re looking for the right roofing vendors – companies that are licensed, bonded and insured, and ready to go to work to help you with your commercial or residential roofing work.
Specialization of Labor
First off, factory-trained people are specifically trained in the skills and abilities necessary to correctly install materials and perform roofing jobs. Matching the skill set to the job is part of what supports consistent success.
Some people talk about it like this – they would say you wouldn’t hire a pilot to do brain surgery, or a chef to fly a plane – the analogies are endless, but the idea is the same. Specialization of labor has created efficiencies in the markets, and brought the people with the right skills to the right jobs.
The factory-trained process accomplishes this in the building industry as a whole, and in roofing specifically.
Knowing Parts and Systems
It also stands to reason that factory training will help our people to understand how to use the materials, parts and systems from a particular provider. So when we say that we are GAF certified, that’s part of that investment in skills and training. Doing the work up front, again, pays off on the back end when people are doing the jobs.
Up to Code
Factory-trained professionals will also be likely to look at systems with a critical eye and ascertain whether they are up to code or not. Building codes are some of the standards of quality that exist in communities and local markets all over the country, and when your vendor pays attention to these things, you are a step ahead.
Invested in Quality
We’ve also seen to an extent how the training works to get people invested in quality processes and quality results.
To put it another way, if you come to the job without any of this training or other kinds of similar processes, you might not have the same confidence or motivation to pay attention to detail. And that’s another part of what separates the best roofing contractors from others.
Finally, factory training provides those professional guideposts and road maps the people need to consistently produce great results.
