Studying the Market
If you are seriously contemplating launching a roofing maintenance and repair business, it's essential that you learn from folks who are already in business. Local competitors are not going to give you the time of day, mind you. The last thing they want to do is help you to be a better competitor.
But, a person who owns a roofing maintenance and repair business outside of your community can be a great learning resource for you, after they realize you reside far away from them and won't be stealing their local customers. In fact, they are often very willing to share startup advice with you. In my experience, you may have to call ten business owners in order to find one who is willing to share his wisdom with you.

Leveraging the Branding Benefits of a Roofing Maintenance & Repair Business Acquisition
Startup roofing maintenance and repair businesses typically suffer when it comes to brand recognition because unlike entrenched competitors, new brands lack visibility and history with their customers.
To compensate, one of the techniques entrepreneurs use is to buy a business to get an established brand. As a startup, the best you can hope for is to gradually develop brand awareness over a period of months and years.
However, a roofing maintenance and repair business acquisition can put you at the helm of a brand that is already highly trusted by your target market.
Don't Forget About Franchising As an Option
You should know that your odds of doing well with your venture are much greater if you decide to franchise and leverage their successful brand and track record.
