The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all segments of the industry in many ways, including the construction segment and the roofing business in particular. One of the harmful effects of the global health crisis is the shortage of building materials of all types, including roofing materials and the resulting increase in pricing that has been slowing down the pace at which construction projects can be accomplished.
The problem of the disrupted supply chain and of hiking prices is not unique to Denver, to Colorado or to the USA – the lockdowns have led to material and labor shortages as well as to increasing tariffs all over the world. To help the companies and individuals engaged in building projects plan for the next phase in their project, many professional organizations now publish official information about the availability of the most common building materials, but the secret to being able to finalize those projects while also minimizing the related stress lies in flexibility, patience and the ability to reschedule processes. Professional organizations hope that the crisis will resolve soon, but until then, they also recommend building companies and clients to try and prolong the deadlines for their project milestones for as long as possible.
