Damp-Proofing.com franchisees receive 91% of all contract values. We receive the remaining 9% + Vat of the contract value as Royalties.
You have control of the funds and clearly receive the payments directly from your customers. This business opportunity is essentially a full support package that will change your income and possibly your life.
Profits should be on target for £35,000 - £100,000 + in your first year. You will earn £300 per working day (minimum) and lead conversion to sales will be very high following our methods. Extent of success does depend on personality and willingness to learn.
It should be noted that similar franchises are being offered for up to £50,000 and we would respectfully suggest they would not provide the support that Damp-Proofing.com will extend to its franchises.
Damp-Proofing.com outlets are franchised. The company has chosen this route in order to replicate the high levels of personal service associated with the original service.
It is difficult to repeat these levels of service with conventionally employed managers. As each franchised outlet is individually owned the customers receive the personal attention of the owner of the business - you.
The support services we supply ensure that the local franchisee has the benefit of a national network behind him. The savings from the low overheads incurred in this type of business structure are passed onto the customers thus ensuring a top quality service at competitive prices.
The Market place
The building preservation market is a large and established industry with a secure and stable future. A successful and satisfying business can be built from running a franchised outlet in such a market.
The established methods of Damp-Proofing.com have several unique features to ensure that you will have every opportunity to achieve success quickly under our umbrella.
Approximately twenty-two million properties currently exist in the UK. The shortage of suitable housing in some areas of the UK will, naturally, boost the number of properties requiring refurbishment, irrespective of the season, boom and bust cycles. Neglect, design faults, natural wear and tear or previous, inappropriate treatments perpetuate market demand.
Training and support
It is, obviously, desirable to build up your business in a sure and progressive way, in order to arrive at the optimum level of business and then maintain and increase upon that level - this will involve much patience, hard work and, at times, a certain amount of anxiety. In general the survival rate of new businesses is low but is usual for most franchised businesses to succeed and to maintain that success, this is largely due to the fact that a system of operation and management has been evolved by the Franchisor which minimises many of the mistakes that may otherwise happen.
No previous experience is necessary as full training is provided for each successful franchisee applicant, with on-going advice, both in the field and from our head office.
The franchisee will also be trained to carry out specialist processes and methods. The methods and equipment employed by Damp-Proofing.com are extremely efficient, for example, an entire damp proof course can be injected in one day (for an average sized property) profits could be up to £2,000.
You can contract out finishing work (plastering, joinery etc) to local craftsmen, who will work to our specifications, including the price for their services in the overall contract, consequently adding a lucrative margin to the work of other people.
The training is one on one. This consists of one-day modules, and on-going support.
Launch support is, initially, intensive and weekly contact is the usual practice; this subsides, as the business and the Franchisee progress, to a normal operational level. If a situation arises that requires further training and / or intensive support, the Franchisee will always find these readily available.
An expert management team, with over 16 yearsí experience in core activity management, provides intensive, on-going support, ensuring that all of our area franchiees can be supported instantly, wherever and whenever.
Royalties, payable to Damp-Proofing.com the Franchiser are 9%+ Vat of the retail prices.

Repeat business is possible and usually available from housing associations and / or local authorities who are themselves, owners of very large stocks of properties, which are constantly requiring repairs and renovations.
Key people, such as estate agents, solicitors and lenders will often make recommendations to their customers, mainly due to the fact that they need the services of companies such as us in order to process property loans and other transactions. You will be trained in how to generate survey reports and quotation letters. This training is again one to one with the operation director on our own company enquires.
The reports are already provided in a simple format that requires the franchisee to modify for each and every situation. But essentially itís a simple process and you donít need to generate your own reports.
