Are you correct 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 regularly in demand, no matter what, and if the economy is in shambles, or if prices skyrocket, the demand for this repair doesn’t change! As a bad example, look at drugs, but no matter what the price is, drugs are regularly in demand, right? Here is a better example – roofing, then people need roofs for their homes & businesses, & that will never change. This means that a task in the roofing industry is also inelastic, & a skilled roofer will regularly be in demand no matter what; How often you will need a roof replacement depends genuinely on your home, its design & age, & the kind of roof it is… Eventually, every apartment will need a roof replacement, but for some sites that might be after 15 years, & for other homes a roof may last for well over 20 years! To get the most out of your roof, & delay the inevitable roof replacement, have your apartment checked & tested respectfully, but unlike the Heating & A/C system, your roofing doesn’t need to be tested every few months… But if it has been a few years since your last inspection, reach out to a local roofing company & 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 nice roof on it.
