(MENAFN – GetNews) CSS Roofing knows firsthand the consequences of waiting for a faulty roof to be replaced. From extensive water damage to mold, rot, and even pest infestation, the consequences can be both frustrating and costly. However, this year another looming threat to homeowners is looming: the rising cost of building materials.
The space of a home is anything that protects the structure, assets, and the family underneath. Despite its durability and ability to withstand the elements season after season, no roof is impervious to damage, wear and tear or the effects of aging.
CSS Roofing knows firsthand the consequences of waiting for a faulty roof to be replaced. From extensive water damage to mold, rot, and even pest infestation, the consequences can be both frustrating and costly.
However, this year another looming threat to homeowners is looming: the rising cost of building materials.
The looming threat from the increased need for roofers
The past year has brought a variety of challenges, from COVID to lost jobs to a “new way of life” amid the global pandemic. With ‘other’ things in mind, many homeowners have postponed roof repairs, replacements, and new installations.
However, this move could have been costly and likely to get worse. In the United States, the building material has seen its price rise on an unprecedented scale, with costs increasing by as much as 15-120%. In February 2021, for example, softwood prices rose by almost 112% year-on-year and rose by a further 10% by March.
With no sign of slowing down, CSS Roofing is warning that waiting for a roof to be replaced could cost homeowners thousands more in raw material costs.
What is driving up costs?
This historic, presumably meteoric rise in building materials costs was driven by several factors affecting both supply and demand, causing a 1: 2 knockout blow.
Some of the factors that drive costs up include:
- An increased demand for single family homes due to the global pandemic
- An increase in new buildings begins (30% and increases from year to year)
- An increase in home remodeling with more people spending time at home
- An increased demand for furniture and equipment (shipping on wooden boxes)
- Low interest rates drive demand for housing and offer builders incentives to increase production
- Production bottlenecks due to mill operators and timber traders misinterpreting the market and forecasting lower than actual demand
The best time to have a roof replaced was yesterday; The next best day is today
According to CSS Roofing and industry insiders, the building materials market is expected to increase costs with no signs of slowing down. This leaves homeowners the tough choice of moving a much-needed roof and risking thousands of dollars in potential repair and renovation costs, or do the job now if it is the cheapest for the foreseeable future.
CSS Roofing knows that a new roof is a great investment in a house or property. Failure to do so can add exponentially more work and the potential headache of dealing with leaks and subsequent damage.
