All Global Roofing Group Customers:
If you are currently experiencing any project delays or disruptions due to shortages of materials, equipment or parts, you are not alone.
As you might be aware, our industry is facing unprecedented material shortages due to a combination of numerous factors. Both the increased construction demand (“Backlog”) combined with the ongoing supply chain constraints have impacted the entire roofing & construction industry.
As a result, the lead times have increased anywhere from 3-6 months or more, and the cost of materials has increased from 30%-100% depending on the system specified. Nearly every product in commercial roofing has been affected.
In some cases we’ve been able to develop alternative solutions to keep new construction projects on track, and have also been able to extend the life of many existing roofs. However, please keep in mind that material availability is best managed through ongoing communication at the earliest stage of a project, allowing time for system or design changes if needed.
We will continue to monitor the extended lead times and raw material shortages. In the meantime, we are committed to serving you through these challenging times and if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us. Thanks for your support.
