We recently returned home from one of the most exciting roofing industry events of the year – GAF’s Wealth Builder Conference down in Austin Texas. Taking place at JW Marriott, we connected with roofing professionals from all over the country and enjoyed some business-building sessions, best-practice sharing, and industry-expert knowledge. It was an enjoyable weekend to say the least, and there were a few awesome moments that stood out from the rest.

Nobody wants to replace their roof prematurely. Likewise, nobody wants to wait too long either. The sweet spot is right in the middle, where your roof has reached the end of its useful life yet hasn’t gone past it. If you’re wondering where your roof is on that spectrum, you’ve come to the right place. Below, we’ll discuss 10 easy to see signs that your roof may need replacement or repair.
The age of your roof and the extent of the damage can mean the difference between needing a reroof or some minor repairs. The younger your roof and the more isolated the damage, the more likely repairs may suffice. The inverse is also true, that the older your roof and the more prevalent the damage, the more likely replacement is needed.
The construction industry has not fully recovered from the economic losses created by the Great Recession, even though many other industries have. Today, total U.S. nonfarm employment is approximately 6.8 percent higher than its previous peak in January 2008:Yet construction employment is approximately 8.8 percent lower than its previous peak in April 2006.
Sluggish growth in construction employment could result from a depressed market demand for new housing. However, given that existing home prices today are higher than they were during the 2006 peak, low demand for new houses may not be an issue.
Chase Construction North West, Inc. had an excellent time at the GAF Wealth Builder Conference of 2018! We met many friends in the business and made some new ones! The entire event was enjoyable, from delicious food and fun recreation, to informative and encouraging presentations by many notable speakers. A handful of these presentations stood out to us and we walked away with a better understanding of how to move Chase Construction North West, Inc. forward.
Galen Emanuele’s speech was interactional with the audience. We entered into groups and roleplayed a variety of different scenarios. One of the activities was to write a letter with a partner, but with a catch: each person could only say one word at a time. It was a challenging task because you would try to anticipate what your partner would say. Often they would say something different than you anticipated, so you would change gears. The exercise was meant to teach us to think on our feet and react properly to whatever comes our way.
