Since your roof has already been approved, now is the time to decide if you want to hand off the whole project to a construction company or if you want to earn money organizing and implementing your own project.
So you want to earn money as your own GC but don’t know where to start?
This is where Hire a Pro steps in. For a consulting fee we can help with insurance negotiation, a materials order list, putting you in touch with roofing crews, providing location-specific information for any permits needed, and provide an invoice template to send to your insurance company when work is complete.
A construction company or general contractor (GC) generally spends around 50% of what the insurance pays on the actual materials and labor involved in installing your new roof. The remaining 50% goes toward paying the salesperson/project manager, company overhead and the company’s profit.
By acting as your own GC, you are entitled to keep any remaining insurance funds that you earned after paying for the labor, materials, permits, and Hire a Pro consulting fee. In most instances this equates to several thousand dollars in your pocket for taking the time to manage the project yourself.
