GETTING STARTED IN THE SPF INDUSTRY
Even with a foundation of comprehensive training and thorough planning, your first year in business can be a roller coaster. As any industry veteran will tell you, it can
be difficult to assess the situation amidst the chaos.
“The entire year needs to be looked at from a perspective away
from the day-to-day grind,” said Matt Enfield of Montana Spray
Foam Inc., an Icynene dealer. “Simply put, when looking back at
your first year in business, if you ‘kicked butt’ more often than you
had your ‘butt kicked,’ then you had a successful first year.”
So much of what contributes to a successful spray foam business
not only entails the gun-end of the job, but also what happens
beyond the application. Indeed, thriving early on is really a
consequence of making and seizing opportunities, properly
installing a great product, and avoiding common pitfalls.
