Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The Roofing Contractors industry largely depends on demand from building construction activity in residential and nonresidential markets, both of which have been rising over the past five years.

Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

The Roofing Contractors industry has a low level of capital intensity because most materials are readily available and workers primarily use simple tools to perform installation and repair of roofs and siding. Sheet metal contracting requires somewhat higher startup outlays due to the relatively high cost of metal-cutting equipment.

In 2017, IBISWorld estimates that for every $1.00 spent on wages, industry operators typically spend $0.05 in

capital investment. These minor capital costs include the use and replacement of equipment and vehicles. Capital

intensity decreased marginally during the past five years as wages increased due to an overall tightening US labor market and the industry’s struggle to recruit qualified workers.
