DUBLIN--(http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/tgxw9b/roofing_siding) has announced the addition of the "Roofing, Siding & Sheet Metal Contractors" report to their offering.)--Research and Markets (
Companies in this industry install and repair roofs as well as wood, aluminum, vinyl siding for homes and businesses. Large commercial roofers include Tecta America and CentiMark (all based in the US).
The US roofing and siding industry includes about 20,000 companies with combined annual revenue of about $30 billion. High growth is forecast for the industry over the next two years. Key growth drivers include increased construction and renovation activity.
Most companies are small, local contractors, with annual revenue less than $1 million. Commercial and residential roofing are quite different, and most companies specialize in one or the other. The industry also includes contractors that install gutters, downspouts, and skylights. Contractors in the industry complete new work, additions, renovations, maintenance, and repairs.
Demand for roofing services is closely tied to local real estate construction. This highly fragmented industry has few large companies and little repeat business. Roofing technology is relatively simple and there are no economies of scale aside from the ability to handle several projects at once. Companies compete based mainly on price.
Because roofs need regular maintenance and often must be replaced every 20 years or so, roofing provides relatively steady work compared to other work that depends chiefly on new construction.
