Are you usual with the concept of an “inelastic market”? I won’t get too in depth with this, I promise, but here is the gist of it – there are some services that are typically in demand, no matter what, however if the economy is in shambles, or if prices skyrocket, the demand for this service doesn’t change, but as a awful example, look at drugs… No matter what the price is, drugs are typically in demand, right? Here is a better example – roofing, however people need roofs for their homes and businesses, and that will never change, then this means that a job in the roofing industry is also inelastic, and a skilled roofer will typically be in demand no matter what, and how often you will need a roof substitutement depends entirely on your home, its design and age, and the kind of roof it is, eventually, every house will need a roof substitutement, but for some sites that might be after 15 years, and for other homes a roof may last for well over 20 years! To get the most out of your roof, and delay the inevitable roof substitutement, have your house checked and serviced always, unlike the Heating and Air Conditioning system, your roofing doesn’t need to be checked every few months.
But if it has been a few years since your last inspection, reach out to a local roofing supplier and have someone check it out for you.
To get back to my original point, this is why roofing is an “inelastic” market, because no matter what the economy is like, people simply can’t live in their homes without a good roof on it.
