Roofing Supply and Installation Business for Sale


$1,100,000 - Bay of Plenty



The Business

The business has been operating for over 50 years and provides roofing services across the wider Bay of Plenty region to the residential and commercial construction industry. A small scaffolding division is also operated.

The current owner of six years has focused on providing a reliable and efficient service that meets the strict timeline needs of builders and other contractors. The operating model is different in that no staff are employed but rather sub contracting gangs are used for all roofing installations.

The operational model involving product being sourced on time and sub-contractors installing it when required has created efficiencies resulting in a strong financial performance. The gross profit for 2023 of 36% is well above the industry average and places this business in the top quartile of performers. (Reference Waikato University Benchmarking)

  • 50 year + history
  • Excellent reputation within the industry
  • Minimum stock holding
  • 70% of work is in re-roofing
  • No staff employed

A generous and extended handover period will be offered.
