GET TO KNOW A BIT ABOUT US

The Founder

Lane Boland’s first contractor was not profitable. In fact it was a burning dumpster fire of cash. His response to the cash crunch was to sell more and more. Instead of addressing his issues with estimating & project management; he built 3 more shops. Within 2 years there were 3 wholly owned locations in KC, Dallas, Denver and 2 partners in Austin and Jacksonville. Each doing 1-2 million with the same profitability issues never being able to complete jobs as estimated and felt like he was running an adult day care, but with way too much financial risk. So he sold them to his employees.

 

Over the following  2 years while in retirement in Puerto Rico, he obsessed over perfection. He studied the big boys with huge margins to uncover their secrets. He then tested and rolled out what worked inside his first client’s company: CQC Home.

 

A breakthrough happened. In 6 months, revenue increased from 8 to 11 million in annual sales, gross profit rose from 27.6% to over 37%. And net take home profit exploded over 8x…..from 2-17%

This is when Remodel Commanders was born. CQC Home’s founder explained to Lane there’s plenty of industry specific training on financial management and project management….but nothing out there focused entirely on the complexities of scaling both sales and operations while protecting healthy gross margins above 35%.

So after being named Pro Remodeler 40 Under 40 for 2023, Lane Boland left his role as the Chief Operating Officer of CQC Home in June 2023 and is now Managing Director of Remodel Commanders…..from the beach in Puerto Rico.

 

Our Mission

“To make business education accessible for self employed contractors so that we make a dent in the contractor 96% failure rate”

Remodel Commanders consults and supports construction entrepreneurs to build profitable and scalable residential general contractors that are capable of 1-3 million per year of sustained growth with 37%+ gross margins

Remodel Commanders Vs. The World

We see the remodel business as one sequential funnel of process. If you improve an earlier component in the funnel that is your business, the results compound downstream. 

 

We invest ALL of our time, focus and money to increase the flow of our Remodel Commander businesses. 

 

Expertise, experience, knowledge and effort  go in the top, Profit & Purpose pour out the bottom.

 

We spend a fortune each month testing new strategies/tactics/techniques & processes that affect every part of the business: Lead appointment generation, sales, construction management, estimating, pricing, recruiting workforce and retaining talent. 

 

Unlike the old school of our industry, we don’t develop trade secrets to lock them away for only our benefit.

 

No sir. We push them out to the Remodel Commanders.
