Commercial Roofing

Commercial Roofing

US spending on commercial roofing is projected to rise less than 1.0% annually to 95.43 million squares in 2022. Increases in commercial construction spending will support demand for roofing products as more retail sites, office buildings, and manufacturing plants are constructed. The nation’s aging commercial roofing stock will further support advances as older roofing materials are replaced with newer and more durable products
