We are VERY UNIQUE in that we offer Gutter School to all of our new gutter business owners. This is a priceless opportunity to come out to Vancouver Island, BC to work side-by-side with our installer.
Gutter School is where a new business owner has the opportunity to learn how to do everything they don’t know how to do. Previous Gutter School attendees have included everyone from young business owners to older owners just starting out. We specialize in teaching completely new business owners how to do things right from the start of their business. Clients pick the amount of time they want to spend with our installer. In Gutter School they will learn how to measure properly, load material, cut ends of the coil, and load the machine properly. They learn how to make 90 degree corners – inside and outside, Bay Window corners, as well as any other measurements they need or want to learn.
New Gutter Business owners also receive their own patterns to take home with them for reference on their own job sites. Business owner will also learn how to hang gutter, and get professional advice on how do long lengths when working solo (this is PRICELESS).
Gutter School is dependent on the kind of work we have on our schedule so that our new business owners get the hands-on experience they need in order to build a successful gutter business of their own. For this reason, Gutter School students do not receive monetary compensation for helping our installer at the end of Gutter School.
Hands-on training can also include working directly with us to learn all about the gutter industry, quickly acquire product knowledge, learn how to do quotes, and learning about working with local suppliers.
One of the local suppliers that we highly recommend to all of our Gutter Business clients is Kaycan. They are one of our main suppliers for the 5”/6” K-style gutter. They have treated us well, their pricing is reasonable and better than most because they manufacture their own products. We have also found that they carry most of the regular products that we need.
We work with many different suppliers for the various products that we install, sell, and distribute. Another company we partner with is Alu-Rex. Alu-Rex Fix-A-Tek T-Rex is a hanger style gutter guard that protects the gutter from debris, as well as ice and snow damage. Gutter businesses can buy Alu-Rex and its many different kinds of gutter guards at local suppliers.
Available for all our new gutter machine business owners (people who have never owned a gutter machine before) who meet the requirements, we offer a free box of Alu-Rex T-Rex 5” – 360’ ft per box. (Please note that this offer is not available for 6″ machine purchases.)
Depending on how much the new business owner sells the Alu-Rex T-Rex 5″ Gutter Guards for, they can earn a substantial amount of extra money, and save on hangers.
