Over the past couple of years roofing material manufacturers have been dealing with some rather unprecedented price increases in their raw materials. Costs for polypropylene, used in TPO and EPDM, have risen sharply at a staggering 50% since last December alone and continue to rise. The demand from China for these materials has primarily driven the price escalation, along with the ever increasing price of gas and unrest in the Middle East, which manufacturers do not foresee ending any time soon.
While North American Roofing has absorbed some of these costs, we simply cannot continue to be competitive without passing some of these increases onto our customers. Know that we are leveraging our unique status with our manufacturing partners to minimize these increases.
This unique relationship is allowing us, unlike most of our competitors, to HOLD PRICING for all jobs priced between September 1, 2011 and December 31, 2011 with the work to be started by April 1, 2012.
This is a potential cost savings of up to 20 percent depending on your project specifics!
