Results are in from market index survey for reroofing

December 7, 2021

A coalition of industry trade associations representing contractors, consultants and manufacturers in the U.S. and Canada completed its latest Quarterly Market Index Survey for Reroofing. The survey takes the pulse of the reroofing industry on a quarterly basis and serves as a regular barometer of the industry’s business conditions.

By asking a handful of business questions and measuring responses across numerous demographics, the survey helps give an indication of the reroofing market’s strength and trajectory.

Fifty-eight percent of survey responses came from contractors, and 42% came from roof consultants. The results indicate opportunities in the reroofing industry improved or held steady during the third quarter of 2021 when compared with the same quarter in 2020.

Some topline excerpts of the survey are:

  • Forty-six percent of all respondents indicated their customer inquiries increased during the third quarter of 2021 compared with the same quarter in 2020. Twenty-two percent of respondents reported a decrease in customer inquiries during the same period, and 31% indicated no change in activity.
  • Project contracts increased for 43% of respondents and decreased for 23% of respondents; 35% reported no change.
  • Eleven percent of roofing contractors reported no project backlogs, 45% reported project backlogs of one to two months and 29% reported project backlogs of three to four months. Fourteen percent of roofing contractors reported project backlogs of five months or more.

The complete results of the Quarterly Market Index Survey for Reroofing are available to those who participate in the survey via an online dashboard that enables users to filter results by region and other metrics. Contractors and consultants who want to participate in next quarter’s brief survey can sign up for a notification.

The survey is an industry-wide effort 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, NRCA, National Women in Roofing, Polyisocyanurate Insulation Manufacturers Association, Roof Coatings Manufacturers Association and Single Ply Roofing Industry.
