I know several guys in Kansas that have built a good business using them.

Their own restoration company does several million in the KC market.

Cliff owned a supply business before selling out to Interlink. Greg owned Powerdry restoration before Morefloods.

They know what they are doing and IF you follow their plan you should be successful too.

However the wdr business is ruthless, demanding and takes requires a serious investment in equipment.

It's probably not for me, yet. Your last sentence told me what I need to know. I'm just adding in drying equipment as the wallet allows right now. If I need to purchase $25k worth of equipment, then I'm not ready to mess with them yet

That's the best way to add equipment, a little at a time. Buying big packages and watching your equipment collect dust can be frustrating.

Whenever we got paid for big jobs we would use SOME of that towards buying more equipment.

I believe getting the work is easy, keeping up with the demand is hard and takes multiple crews and good management.

Remember this type of work comes at the worst times. People come home to find their home flooded after work. Or they are away for the weekend and Sunday night find it flooded.

I'm not trying to scare you away, I loved the WDR business. However it can be brutal on family time until you get the infrastructure built to share the load.

I'm very familiar with this type of work. That's why I'm slowly building into it

Are you going to be ok with going out to suck water at 3 am?
I'll never do that. My cell phone is turned off during that time. Late night and CAT3 jobs are going to the big companies, not me. I want to enjoy doing water damage, not hate it

In an ideal world you could do that. In reality your clients will need you and when you aren't available they will call someone else. After that, you lose them as a client.

Nope, I've been doing that and my client list is growing just fine. That's the joy of owning your own business. Choosing your own hours.

@Matt Wood. You should talk to Rob Lyon. He was with them many years ago a couple hours north of me, did well, And sold his company and then started another in NY area. I can put you in touch with him. He will give you the real low down.

That’d be awesome. I’ll be glad to give my contact info or I can reach out to him. Thanks

I'm sure its popping all over. We've had pipes breaking all over campus. Fortunately those in our building have come in the kitchen areas.
Wouldn’t you hate to be in Texas. Even though we were colder. Houston is not made for that! My oldest lives there and her husband fell through the attic😬

I wouldn't have wanted to have a home there but as a service business, now would be the time.

I was on the phone with Lockhart Tuesday. He had a flooded hospital, he said you see it frozen on the outside walls.

So back to my original post...dumbasses

Last week I just dried out my insurance agent’s office from a busted water pipe. After he saw my capabilities, I hope there won’t be a need for the More Floods company to send me jobs.

Did you pay the $10,000 for a more floods territory?
