So right now this is just speculation on my behalf.
I live in Nebraska, and I have just been selling roofs for about 6 weeks…but I am doing pretty good at it. I work for a local company, but kinda of storm chasing. I am working a small town about 2 hours away from me that had a hail storm. Not a brutal one, but there are about 500 homes in the area that got beat up pretty good.
My wife is a horse woman, does barrel racing, and for years she has talked about moving down to TX. She does NOT want to live in the Dallas/Ft Worth area proper…but around there some where. Either up north around Denton, or out west around Weatherford and Granbury. From reading online, it looks like the Dallas/Ft Worth area had hail somewhere pretty dang regularly. Weather Channel I think it was listed it as one of the 10 most hail prone places in the country. To me that means there is probably a lot of work pretty much every year (I dont want to be a true chaser going all across the country…I want to work within an hour or so from home). My other thought though is this. If there is that much hail in the area that regularly…that probably means there is a crap ton of roofing companies down there, and a ton more salesguys?
This would be something I probably would not do until next spring, but just kind of looking for any insight anyone can give me about this job in that area.
