Let's Plan Together: Material Availability Update

As you are aware, material availability has been a significant issue these last six months.  Our industry has remained incredibly strong despite the major supply chain disruption we’re experiencing due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  This crisis has challenged capacity and production throughout the chain and because of that, we’re seeing price increases in every material category we offer.  More concerning than the price escalation is our current supply situation.  Lead times on products that had typical 7 to 14 day lead times are out as far as +120 days.  Most product lead times range between 60 and 90 days currently.  We want to share with you the most up-to-date information around our key suppliers and their current product offerings.

To mitigate the effects of these challenges, we recommend that you:

  • Insert price escalation clauses in your contracts and limit quotes to 30 days.
  • Be mindful of selling less popular shingle & siding colors.
  • Secure your orders ASAP to ensure adequate supply.
  • Prepare your customers for the potential of substitutions to complete projects.

These times continue to be very challenging for everyone involved.  We want to help you navigate these challenges with minimal disruption to your business.
