Selling For The WRONG Roofing Company? 5 Red Flags

Are you feeling uneasy about the roofing company you’re working with? Whether you’re a seasoned pro or new to the industry, discovering that your current company isn’t the right fit can be disheartening. But don’t worry—I’m here to help you identify the key warning signs that it’s time to move on to a company that truly values you.


Hi, I’m Adam Bensman, founder of the Roofing & Solar Reform Alliance. My mission is to help teams like yours OutSell, OutGrow, and OutCompete The Rest as We STOMP The Scum Out! . Let’s dive into the five red flags that indicate you need to find a new company to sell for.



1. Empty Promises

Empty promises are unfortunately common in this industry. If your company has promised training, pay advances, promotions, or operational fixes and hasn’t delivered, it’s a major red flag. Consistently unfulfilled promises erode trust and hinder your ability to grow and succeed. If your leadership doesn’t follow through on commitments, it’s a sign to reconsider your position with them.


2. Persistent Production Problems

Roofing is a complex industry where things can and do go wrong. However, consistent production issues that never get resolved can severely impact your ability to sell with confidence. If you repeatedly find yourself apologizing to customers for mistakes that aren’t being addressed, it’s time to question if you should stay. A company that doesn’t learn from its errors and make necessary improvements is not a company that supports its sales team effectively.


3. Toxic Culture

A toxic work environment is detrimental to your well-being and productivity. Whether it’s internal conflict, substance abuse, or general negativity, such an atmosphere can drain your energy and enthusiasm. Life is too short to spend in a harmful environment. A positive and supportive workplace is crucial for your success and happiness.

4. Not Getting Paid

It’s shocking how often sales reps don’t get paid what they’re owed. This is inexcusable. If your company is withholding pay, it’s a clear indication of deeper issues within the organization. You deserve to be paid accurately and on time for your work. If you’re facing payment problems, it’s time to find a new company that respects and compensates you properly.


5. Lack of Fun and Enjoyment

Your work should be rewarding and enjoyable. If you’re not having fun and feeling fulfilled, it’s a significant issue. The right company will not only align with your professional goals but also make your work enjoyable. Success isn’t just about money—it’s about finding meaning and joy in what you do. If you’re not experiencing this, it’s a sign to look for a company where you can thrive.
