Although the full impact of the coronavirus is hard to determine, we do know that many manufacturing plants were operating at 30-50% of capacity this year. This means that availability of materials will become scarcer as inventories are used up. It will also mean that prices are likely to go up due to the material shortages, logistics breakdowns, order cancellations and extended delays in product fulfillment and shipping.
What does that mean for you?
When roofing companies are unable to buy materials at the prices they used to, homeowners are going to have to make the tough decision on whether they should replace their roof now or wait. If your roof is looking worse for wear, now would be a great time to have an inspection completed by a qualified roofer so they can determine the condition of your roof.
With winter fast approaching, many roofing companies will start to shut down and turn away work. Chouinard Bros. prides itself on working all year long and has had almost 50 years to create best practices for working in all types of weather. If your roof won’t survive until Spring, we will be able to replace it, so you don’t have to worry about emergency repairs. However, we also have a full Service department that can complete repairs if your roof has suffered from animal or wind damage this year.

Please note: Chouinard Bros. does not recommend any homeowner complete repairs to their roof of their own. Our technicians are skilled at performing this work and have received years of training to understand how to complete repairs safely.
