How Creating Labor Crew Connections Can Help Everyone Succeed

Labor Central Labor Crew Connection

By Labor Central. 

With everyone in the roofing industry wanting to be successful, we can only win if we work together. 

Everyone who works in roofing wants to thrive in the industry. But in order to do so, contractors and sub-contractors need to form a mutual understanding and relationship with each other. With both sides wanting the same outcome, success, it’s important that there’s a mutual understanding between the two before they start working on a project together.  

In the roofing industry, it is easy to see there are two sides to success. Contractors. Sub-contractors. In a world where contractors are always looking for crews to expand their business or fill gaps in scheduling or crews are looking to contractors to help keep them busy, both are trying to do the same thing: work smart, make money and survive the conditions surrounding the toughest industry on the planet! Roofing! 

The relationship between contractors and sub-contractors is unique and critical when contractors are growing and need support to drive quality work and customer satisfaction. On the other hand, you will find the pressure to succeed falls on the sub-contractor as his team is sometimes required to jump into a project, on a roof with little direction or job expectations by the contractor. It always seems to be where finger pointing starts and the relationship suffers. Poor start-up expectations and onboarding may be the root cause of jobs gone bad. 

Introducing Labor Central 

Labor Central is dedicated to creating the most effective, engaging and promising labor crew connections. We want the Win-Win. Good contractors hiring good crews to complete jobs as determined, and when things don't always go as planned - they stick around to solve the issues. This is known as integrity. (Doing the right thing when no one is looking). 

Labor Central has been recruiting, profiling, onboarding and rating crews in a system that provides access for clear project communication, documentation and the payment of roofing labor in a secure environment. Check out www.LaborCentral.com and get started today finding crews when you need them. Spend less time searching, more time roofing! 

So, what are some simple and clear steps to help drive project success in the roofing business? Let's take a look: 

1 - Have a clearly defined scope of work and contract in place with the contractor and crew. 

2 - Communicate expectations and details of operation PRIOR to rooftop work. 

3 - Don't take on more than you can deliver. Leave margins for error. 

4 - Make sure project funds are sufficient to keep the crews and project alive. 

5 - Be professional. Communicate and accept responsibility for issues that arise. 

Where does this drive you?  

How do you find crews and talent to support your projects, growth, future business plans? Finding labor crews requires a little more effort than most want to invest. Why? Because expectations ALWAYS exceed output. We know no one does it as good as you. However, spend a little time training and giving back to the roofing community and it will reap huge benefits for you! 

Labor Central. Helping you manage, document and do better roofing business!
