My Time As A Goop Guys Franchise Owner

 

Goop Man 02

I discovered Goop Guys in 2010 and was fascinated by the product and how easy it was to apply, with further research I found that not only was it easy to apply but it really worked.

Being involved in Glass and Aluminium Industry for a very long time, I was looking for something different and could see the benefits that Goop Guys offered to the Building Industry.

My Wife and I bought the North Melbourne franchise in 2011 and headed off to protect as many windows as we could. Being from Queensland, moving to Melbourne was a challenge, but we were able to manage the different weather and started to build a business. Unfortunately due to Family Health we were only in Melbourne for 12 months, but didn’t have any problems on selling a good business.

Moving back to Queensland to look after elderly parents, I found work in the Glass Industry again, until the Toowoomba Franchise of Goop Guys was available, so my wife and I bought this franchise in 2015.

Moving to Toowoomba was very similar to Melbourne (weather ) but a lot closer to Family.

We have owned Goop Guys Toowoomba for about 2 years now. Trying to convince the Builders in Toowoomba of the benefits of Goop Products has been a challenge, but I believe in the product and have faith that the Smart Builders will too.

 

Protecting Low Emissivity Glass with WindowGoop

low e glass

Low E glass or low emissivity glass is an amazing product for keeping out heat and UV light – it can be incredibly expensive to install and therefore expensive to replace should it be scratched or damaged on the jobsite.

With a low e glass installed in a home or office the amount of heat that is conducted through the glass can be reduced by around 30% which will considerably reduce heat in buildings and can improve thermal efficiency by cutting glare.

Low e glass can also reduce damage to furnishings and items in a home or office by reducing the UV light that filters through the glass.

What is a blackout film?

A blackout film is something that covers glass and windows so that it either blocks out light, UV rays, heat or a view (and sometimes all of these). There are different types of blackout films available on the market from a cling film type product that sticks to glass and windows, plastic sheets that need adhesives and our revolutionary Blockout Goop product that rolls on like a paint and peels off like a plastic.

How to protect your floors during renovations

floor protection
If you‘ve ever renovated a home or worked in construction you know how easily accidents can happen. Hopefully no one gets hurt in these accidents but sometimes even small things like dropping tools, spilling paint or using the wrong tape can leave marks, residue, dents, dings and scratches in flooring, walls, benches and windows.

Accidents like these can set your project back not only on budget but also on time whilst you get things fixed. We’ve had many customers with hardwood floors find out the hard way that scratches and marks in the floor can be a lengthy and expensive process to fix.

Why it's difficult for us to give pricing on WindowGoop

We get lots of people asking us “How much does WindowGoop cost?” or “What’s the price for WindowGoop?” and the answer to this question, unfortunately, is a bit of a how-long-is-a-piece-of-string answer.

The difficulty we face in pricing up a job for WindowGoop is that there are so many variations to a job. For example, here’s some of the standard variations we see all the time when quoting on a WindowGoop job:-

Why more and more building companies are using Goop



If you’re a builder, work for a construction company or run a building business you know that building sites get messy. We know that, you know that and most builders realise that a bombsite looking construction site (in the client's eyes) can turn into a spectacular, immaculate and clean land and home months later. Whilst this is the case, there are some elements of a building site that may be causing you to lose money, time and manpower on every job you complete. Think about these questions for a moment -  

  • How much time do your tradies spend cleaning up windows, benchtops and bathtubs after a job?
  • How much is the cost of repair on a scratched or damaged window, benchtop or bathtub?
  • What’s the cost to your company of pulling out and replacing a badly damaged bathtub?
