This study analyzes US roofing demand by product, application (new vs. reroofing), market, and subregion. Demand is provided in both area terms (squares) and value terms (US dollars) at the manufacturers’ level.

Roofing products covered include:

  • asphalt shingles, including three-tab (i.e., standard), standard laminated (i.e., architectural, and high-performance laminated types
  • metal, including standing seam; shingles, shakes, and tiles; and corrugated and smooth panels
  • bituminous, including by system (built-up roofing – BURs – and modified bitumen systems) and product (SBS-, SEBS-, APP-modified membranes, other membranes, and standard roofing felts)
  • plastic products, primarily TPO and PVC single-ply membranes but also including other plastic membranes (e.g., ethylene copolymers, chlorinated polyethylene, ethylene interpolymers, nitrile alloy, and tripolymer alloy) and molded fiberglass or polycarbonate shingles and shakes
  • rubber, including EDPM membranes and other materials
  • roofing tile, including concrete, clay, and porcelain types
  • wood shingles and shakes
  • small volume roofing products, including spray polyurethane foam (SPF), slate, liquid-applied roof coatings, composite/synthetic, tensioned fabric, vegetative (green) roofing, solar roofing, fiber cement shingles and shakes, corrugated asphalt panels, concrete panels, molded fiberglass or polycarbonate shingles, and all other products

Bituminous roofing is also discussed in terms of consumption, or the amount of roofing material used per square of roofing.

Excluded from the scope of the study are such related products as roofing underlays, flashings, and coatings used as repair and restorative compounds and not used as a structure’s primary roofing material, as well as roof-mount solar panels and mopping asphalts, granules, and ballast used during the installation of bituminous roofs.
