Roofing

This study analyzes US demand for commercial roofing products by product, market, and geographic region. Commercial roofing product demand is provided in both area terms (squares) and value terms (US dollars).

Commercial roofing product demand is segmented by the following products:

  • plastic single-ply, comprising thermoplastic polyolefin, polyvinyl chloride, and other membranes; and molded fiberglass or polycarbonate shingles and shakes
  • bituminous, including SBS, SEBS, and APP polymer-modified bitumen membranes and standard roofing felts; and also segmented by:
    • roofing area covered (modified bitumen vs. built-up roofing)
    • backing material (fiberglass vs. organic)
    • surface type (granulated vs. smooth)
  • metal, including standing seam roofing, corrugated and smooth panels, and shingles, shakes, and tiles
  • asphalt shingles, including standard laminated asphalt shingles, high-performance laminated asphalt shingles, and three-tab shingles
  • rubber, comprising ethylene propylene diene monomer and other rubber formulations (e.g., CSPE, neoprene, butyl rubber)
  • other products, including spray polyurethane foam; concrete and clay roofing tile; wood shingles and shakes; composite (polymer) shingles, shakes, and tiles; slate; solar roofing; liquid-applied roof coatings, tensioned fabric; vegetative (green) roofing; concrete and fiberglass panels

Commercial roofing shipments, imports, and exports are also shown at the aggregate level in millions of dollars, and average product prices (at the manufacturers’ level) and installation costs are provided for major product types in dollars per square.

Excluded from the scope of the study are such related products as roofing underlays, flashings, and coatings used as repair and restorative compounds and used as a structure’s primary roofing material.

Demand for commercial roofing is also analyzed by market segment (new and reroofing) and by building type:

  • office, retail, and lodging
  • institutional
  • industrial
  • transportation and other buildings (e.g., civic centers, courthouses, post offices, recreational facilities)

Additionally, commercial roofing demand is broken out for the following US geographic regions and subregions:

  • Northeast (Middle Atlantic and New England)
  • Midwest (East North Central and West North Central)
  • South (South Atlantic, East South Central, and West South Central)
  • West (Mountain and Pacific)
