Jared Garn is the President of Knockout Roofing. He’s only been in the plow business for five years and he says retrofitting his trucks and finding work in the winter months is paramount to his success.
“Roofing is really slow so we got into the show removal industry,” said Garn. “When days like today hit, it really helps because we’re usually not out their doing roofs.”
Garn is not the only one he has to watch out for; he employees about 30 people who also need work when the snow starts falling.
“We have about 12 trucks. We have land crews and salters,” explained Garn. “The company’s got about 30 employees.”
While Garn is happy to have the work from the storm he says, “I wish I could pick the times and dates that it came.”
