Trade Association Coalition Launches Q2 2021 Quarterly Market Index Survey for Reroofing

July 7, 2021; Ottawa, Ontario – Roofing professionals are invited to join industry trade associations representing contractors, consultants and manufacturers in the U.S. and Canada in taking part in the new Quarterly Market Index Survey for Reroofing.

The purpose of the survey is to take the pulse of the reroofing industry on a quarterly basis and become a regular barometer of the industry’s business conditions. By asking a handful of business questions and measuring responses across a number of demographics, the survey helps give an indication of the reroofing market strength and trajectory.

During the previous survey timeframe that measured perceptions of business activity in Q1 2021, nearly 300 respondents completed the eight-question survey during a two-week period in April with 62% of responses coming from roofing contractors and 38% coming from roof consultants. The results indicate generally improving market conditions for the roofing industry in the face of the global COVID-19 pandemic.

The survey is an industry-wide effort to collect information about the reroofing market spearheaded by a coalition of trade associations, including the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association, Canadian Roofing Contractors Association, Chemical Fabrics & Film Association Inc., EPDM Roofing Association, International Institute of Building Enclosure Consultants, Metal Construction Association, National Roofing Contractors Association, National Women in Roofing, Polyisocyanurate Insulation Manufacturers Association, Roof Coatings Manufacturers Association and Single Ply Roofing Industry.

“Although the pandemic may look like it is nearing the end, material shortages and price increases will continue for some time. Collectively roofing associations in Canada and the USA are working to get a better handle on the supply and demand of roofing materials and this survey will help us better understand the recovery of the industry”, states Bob Brunet, CRCA Executive Director.

The quarterly Market Index Survey for Reroofing is available at http://bit.ly/roofindexsurvey.  Survey responses may be submitted Wednesday, July 7th through Monday, July 26th.
