Creating A Sash Window Repair Business

By James Trent

Do you want to know how to start your own professional sash window repair business? It can be a rewarding experience but at first it can seem very intimidating. The first thing to do is to know what kind of work will you be doing and what you will be working with. As this is a business, you will need both the skills to do the repair work and the skills to promote your business.

College courses are probably best for developing this kind of skill. Ideally you should have a practical aptitude and be good at measuring, so mathematics and design based courses will probably help as a start.

There are a lot of aspects to cover. It is worth shopping around trade catalogues to get materials at cheaper prices for materials and tools. Get some practise materials to learn how to repair. Ideally you will already be qualified in carpentry and be able to work on repairs.

The next thing is registering your business. If you are working for yourself, you are probably better off registering as a sole trader. If you are not confident with numbers, it may be worth going into partnership with someone who is. Other options include forming a limited company. If you are not sure what option is best for you it is worth talking to your local citizens advice bureau.

In some cases, there may be a franchise business that can help you get started. This is a good option if you want some guidance in setting yourself up. It is worth looking online as it is worth seeing what is available in your local area. Like any company, you should check to see what the set up costs are and whether you would be better off sorting them out yourself.

Prompt work is important, as is respect and manners. Always tidy up after your work and ensure the house looks how you left it. This is not only about looking professional, it will also help you get good referrals and testimonials, which will in turn get you more work. Remember as this is your business, you are also responsible for the image of the company.

In short with the right development you can establish your own business. Look online for courses that can give you the best relevant qualifications for not just learning repairs but also how to prepare the right paperwork and so forth. For more information look at a local trade association website.
