It’s not too late to schedule your 2021 commercial roof inspection or maintenance project – Yet.
If you’ve been putting off scheduling your commercial roof inspection, repair, or replacement project – NOW is the time to get on our calendar. As we approach the end of Summer, we are expecting record business and long lead times heading into the Winter months.
Commercial Roofing Material Shortages and Delays
Product and labor shortages and shipping delays have become the new normal in this post-COVID economy. Everything from automobiles to construction materials to our food supply chain has experienced disruption with the sudden spike in demand following 2020’s economic downturn.
Commercial roofing is no exception. At Mint Roofing, we are experiencing supply shortages and price increases just like most other industries. And while Winter seems a long way off, it’s important to realize that we’re already halfway through the year (I know, you didn’t want to hear that).
The best way to prevent costly roof repairs caused by the constant freeze-thaw cycles of our Minnesota Winters is to inspect and fix any issues now.
It’s impossible to know when things will be back to normal. What is clear is that these shortages and delays will be with us through the end of 2021 and likely into Q1 or Q2 of 2022.
How does this affect me?
If you have a roof maintenance project planned, we recommend getting it on our schedule soon. Our calendar will start filling up as we get into September.
We also anticipate a record number of roof inspections to be scheduled in the coming months. If you haven’t scheduled your annual or semi-annual roof inspection yet, we suggest you do so as soon as possible.
Roof Replacements scheduled for 2022 are also subject to delays and materials shortages as inventories are built back to normal levels. Scheduling now will help you avoid delays. It’s important to keep in mind that we have no control over future material costs which may continue to increase over time.
How important are commercial roof inspections?
Flat commercial roofs should be inspected annually or after a severe storm. Older roofs should be inspected twice each year.
A roof inspection by your commercial roofing professionals at Mint Roofing will help you by:
- Identifying issues
- Preventing leaks and costly down-time
- Managing your maintenance costs
- Staying ahead of material shortages and delays
- Preparing your business for a Minnesota Winter free from costly down-time
- Extending the life of your roof
