The Impact of the Industry-Wide Roofing Material Shortage

Industry leader Greg Hayne chats with experts from Jobba on how they’re handling the roofing material shortage.

Contractors in the roofing industry know well the impact of this major material shortage we are facing. In a recent webinar from Jobba, industry experts Greg Hayne, Karol Weyman and Eugene Zukowski discuss the effects this shortage has had on roofing contractors. Jobba even conducted a survey that asked contractors about the impact the shortage has had on their companies, the results of which are shared in the webinar.

“In the peer groups I facilitate, all of them have been impacted in some way shape or form by the material shortage, a few of them have not,” said Greg.

For many contractors, being impacted by the material shortage means losing the ability to expand your business. The panelists also detailed how the material shortage has made contractors less willing to expand their service departments or provide new services for their customers.

The three also discussed the following questions:
• Has the material shortage had a negative impact on your business?
• Has the material shortage forced you to change your plans this year?
• Has your service department grown during the shortage?
• Do you actively market maintenance programs?
• Do you plan on expanding your service department?
• Do you currently track material inventory and consumption?
• Has the material or labor shortage had a larger impact on your business?

The material crisis has created a massive disruption in the way contractors, manufacturers and distributors do business. Now more than ever contractors must be resourceful and focus on communication. Cass Jacoby said in a recent article, “As the material shortages continue, what becomes increasingly clear is that communication with a team, across departments and with the customer, is paramount to managing these historic shortages.”

Fortunately, Jobba provides a powerful platform that was created to enhance your ability to communicate with your employees or customers. With automated notifications and easy to use tools, you can use Jobba to support your company as disruptions continue.
