How Far into the Future Can an Estimate Be Accurate? [Podcast]

Key Takeaways:

  • The industry standard for roofing material pricing is based on “Time of Shipping.” This means that you pay the price of your materials at the time they ship, not the time they are ordered.
  • Long lead times on roofing materials are leading to increased prices due to inflation and a number of other factors.
  • Most estimates are only good for 15 days due to rapidly changing prices.
  • Things are better than they have been over the past 3 years, but there is not an end in sight to long lead times.
