Most people think of a door and window company as a big manufacturer or huge operation that has high overhead and needs considerable capital.
That is actually not the case. Well, capital you do need, but overhead and employees you do not need. Many companies that are windows and doors companies are not manufacturers. They are basically brokers. That build nothing and produce no physical product.
Many companies basically bid on new projects and are drop shippers. Running a business like this can easily be done from your house. The only downside to starting a home based door and window company is that a considerable amount of capital is needed ti get started. Often times on big projects a good amount of the overall price of the windows is tied up in retention over an extended period of time.
This can make sustainability tough because most of what gets tied up in retention is profit. If you have the money however to get started, it’s the perfect home based business because profits can be huge. If you land a big apartment complex revenues can be in the hundreds of thousands.
