Roofing, Siding & Sheet Metal Contractors
Companies in this industry install and repair roofing, siding, and gutters for homes and businesses. Major companies include Baker Roofing, CentiMark, Nations Roof, and Tecta America (all based in the US), and Flynn Canada (Canada).
Global demand for roofing, siding, and sheet metal contractors is driven by construction activity in specific countries and regions. Global construction output is forecast to reach around $15 trillion in 2030, up from about $11.6 trillion in 2020, according to Designing Buildings.
The US roofing and siding industry includes about 27,000 establishments (single-location companies and units of multi-location companies) with combined annual revenue of about $47 billion.
Demand for roofing services is closely tied to maintenance needs and new construction. Demand for replacement and repair is closely tied to storm activity. Profitability depends on efficient operations and management of raw materials and labor expenses. Large companies have advantages in being able to manage multiple projects simultaneously and to serve customers with multiple locations. Smaller firms can compete by specializing in a specific service such as reroofing or building type.
Commercial and residential roofing differ significantly, and most companies specialize in one or the other. Some companies offer both commercial and residential services. Because roofs need regular maintenance, roofing provides relatively steady work compared to contracting that depends chiefly on new construction.
