The Cost of Doing Business As a New Company

Having a whole new roof placed on a building has turned out to be far more expensive than I expected it to be. Don’t get me wrong I knew that it was going to be incredibly expensive but I was hoping that I would be able to save more money on it. Even after finding cheap commercial roof installation in Bergen County NJ I’m looking at spending nearly $10,000. This is kind of ridiculous but as someone who wants to start their first business with the hope that I’m going to save money with the lease on this building, even with the costs of the roof, it’s still a hard hit to the budget.

There’s no way that I can deny that in the long run the lease is going to be cheaper. Finding a building here locally turned out to be far more difficult than I expected it to be. Every building that we originally looked at had a lease that was over a year and was going to cost more in that year than the cost of the roof for this building was going to have to be invested in. The building might not be perfect but it’s going to be what we need to start off with.

Still, we are going to have to hire fewer people because of the smaller size of this place. Are we going to be able to do maintain an efficient production line? It could mean that we won’t be able to produce the number of end products that we were aiming for originally but we had set the bar high for ourselves. I’m willing to take a loss for the first two years but if we’re not able to clear a profit after that period we might have to consider shutting out doors.
