The numbers between Metal Roofing Subscribers and Metal Roofing Contractors in the Construction Survey are very similar. Metal Roofing Subscribers appear to have slightly lower increases in gross sales and units sold, but comparable profitability.
General roofing compared to metal roofing has more significant differences. It is possible that some of the difference may be an anomaly because of the smaller sample size for businesses self describing as primarily Roofing as opposed to Metal Roofing. Roofing had more “stayed the same” or “decreased” in units sold and gross sales. Metal roofing showed a greater increase in units and gross sales. So the demand for metal appears stronger than general roofing.
Profitability is similar between both but slightly lower for general roofing. MR
