Franchise vs. Start-up

View More:

If you’ve been thinking about owning your own business, you generally have two options: create a start-up from scratch, or purchase a franchise. Building a business from the ground up is a demanding endeavor that is not for the faint of heart: chances are, it will take years of all day, every day effort to get that start-up off the ground. But a Storm Guard franchise opportunity is different. Instead of starting with nothing, when you join the Storm Guard family you automatically have a wealth of tools and resources that most start-up businesses simply don’t have. Among these resources, there are four that give our franchise owners an immediate advantage over other business models: brand power, collaboration, training, and technology.

Brand Power

Storm Guard is the largest roofing and construction franchise in the U.S. We have 34 offices operating in 84 territories that span 21 states. But what our national presence means for you is that your business has built-in credibility – from day one. Part of the Storm Guard mission is to build trust with every community that we serve. By owning a business with a respected brand, you can better encourage the members of your community to trust that you have their best interests at heart.


As a Storm Guard franchise owner, you will learn the business from the best in the business. You will have access to industry experts and a community of fellow franchise owners that can help you avoid many of the common pitfalls that new business owners encounter. Instead of learning with your wallet or through trial and error, you will have a support team of experts on hand ready to teach you how to build and run a successful roofing and construction business.


Storm Guard’s franchise owner training is one of the best in the industry. That is true both during the initial training phase and throughout your time as a Storm Guard franchise owner. Each of our franchise owners completes a comprehensive training program that teaches you every aspect of running a successful roofing and construction business. Then, once your business is up and running, we continue to provide additional training and support to ensure that your business stays on the path to success.


Part of what makes a Storm Guard franchise such a great option is the technology we use to run our business. As a national franchise, we provide advanced technologies to our franchise owners that start-up businesses simply can’t afford. These technologies will not only help you keep track of every aspect of your business, they will help you save time and create efficiencies that are not possible without them. Running a successful business means that you will have a lot on your plate each day. But with the technology tools that we provide, you will never have to worry that important things are slipping through the cracks.

When it comes to starting a business, there are clear advantages to choosing a franchise opportunity like Storm Guard. And we need dedicated individuals who not only want to own a profitable business, but who are ready to join us on our mission to earn back the trust of home and business owners across the country.
