 It’s FREE in More Ways Than One

There are no costly licensing or franchise fees.  The only dollar investment required on your end is the cost of placing an initial order of at least $20,000, including shipping.  You turn around and sell this product and you’re in the black and never looking back.

F.R.E.E.

Fiber Roofing’s standards of craftsmanship and higher quality natural and synthetic thatch remain unmatched by any other manufacturer in the world.  The product your representing has delivered on every  promise made to clients commercial and residential for over 40 years.

It’s no wonder so many in The F.R.E.E. Network easily surpass a million dollars in inventory every year.

YOU’LL NOTICE ON COMPETITIVE SITES YOU WON’T FIND ‘DISTRIBUTORS’ OR ‘AGENTS MENTIONED BY NAME.  WHY?  THEY’RE AFRAID THEY’LL BE LURED AWAY BY ANOTHER COMPANY.  WE’RE NOT.  AND FOR GOOD REASON.

Comparing Us to Others Should Close the Deal

Cape Reed thatch, like any product grown in nature, is a commodity.  There’s very little difference between the thatch we harvest and thatch harvested by our competitors.  It’s what happens ‘after’ the harvest that makes Fiber Roofing and the F.R.E.E. Network a cut above.

Compare Profit Margins

You’ll find big money is to be made on big jobs – regardless of which company you align yourself with.  But on the day-to-day smaller and medium size product sales, no one can match the F.R.E.E. Network discount structure and profit margins. 

Compare Product Variety

The more well-rounded and complete your product mix, the more opportunity you’ll have for sales.  Having ‘more on the floor’ gives customers license to think outside the box, beyond cone, hip and corner tiles.

Everyone has a ‘quality’ story.  Problem is, for most it’s just a ‘story’ with no meat on the bone to back it up.  Over the past 40-years Fiber Roofing has laid more thatch on more roofs throughout the world than any other brand.  The quality-story you share will be backed up by facts.

Compare Cultures

Many competitors are more interested in selling more distributorship’s in order to gain market share for them, we’ve taken a different path.    No one can ‘buy’ their way into the F.R.E.E. Network; there are no agent, licensing or franchise fees.  We also take great pains to provide each member with a large enough territory so they don’t have to share their market with anyone.

 Compare Support Systems

Unless you have a crystal ball it’s hard to see how well an arrangement like this will work down the road.  We stand by our promise to provide more care and support than any of competitors and accept the fact you need more than ‘our word’ on it.  We encourage you to reach out to those in our network and ask them how they feel about being in business with us.

Compare Your ‘Container Options’

Regardless of who you choose to align yourself with, once you’re up and running, you’re going to receive containers.  The products inside these containers represent your cost of doing business and your total potential profit potential.  No other brand offers a wider variety of products and choices of thatch qualities than Fiber Roofing.  So not matter where you are or type of clientele your likely to cater to most, your containers will always be customized with a product mix to best match your enterprise. 

Compare Capacity
