answering some of our most frequently asked questions
Storm Guard’s initial training is thorough and consists of 4 pillars. Each pillar builds upon the learning and skills acquired in the previous one and directly correlates to where you and your team are in the business lifecycle. Together, the 4 pillars span your first 3-6 months as a Storm Guard franchisee. For more information, click here or contact us.
At Storm Guard, we know that our success as a franchisor is directly related to the success of our local offices. When you begin initial training, you also begin weekly calls with your Franchise Business Consultant, and those calls continue throughout your lifetime as a Storm Guard franchisee. We also cultivate multiple communication channels online and in person with both the support team and your peers to ask questions and share best practices. Additionally, our internal CRM keeps training, resource guides, and access to marketing materials and strategies at your fingertips. Read more here.
Yes! Storm Guard has established national relationships with distributors and suppliers that benefit franchisees on the local level. A few examples:
- ABC Supply
- Beacon Roofing Supply
- Owens Corning
Neither is required or necessary. We already have it and will teach you what you need to know! What is more, as the franchise owner you will be managing your business, staff and subcontractors, not completing the work yourself.
Although there are numerous differences, a couple stand out to us. First, we are committed, local providers who live and work in the communities we serve. We value integrity and quality of materials and craftsmanship. Unlike so many of our competitors, we do not hop from market to market, chasing storms and leaving disappointed customers in our wake. Second and most importantly, Storm Guard is a family. That’s not a feel-good phrase we throw around lightly. You’ll find no shortage of passion, collaboration and trustworthiness in both the Storm Guard support team and franchisees. We know we’re stronger together and collectively work to raise the service level standard in our industry while building successful, profitable businesses in the process. Culture is an intangible, but valuable asset.
We’re looking for self-motivated, business savvy entrepreneurs who are skilled in relationship building and care about the safety of their community. We take care of the education, training and support you need to succeed in the roofing and construction business, but a background in people and product management or outside sales could be of benefit. That said, our franchisees come from all walks of life and a strong work ethic and desire to thrive no matter the challenge tend to trump previous experience.

Our goal is to get your location operational as efficiently as possible. There are variances in opening timelines from state to state and given the time of year that you join the family. Contact us for more information specific to your location and situation.
