All shingle manufacturers have announce increases on shingles and accessories beginning in August. With limited supply on the ground at the plants, as well as a lot of pressure on orders we believe this trend will continue into the latter part of the 3rd quarter and possibly beyond. As usual, colors other than weatherwood will feel the most strain.

Due to these increases, Roadrunner will move pricing up on August 17th. 

Davinci Roofscapes has also announced an increase for 9/1 and we will price accordingly based on delivery date from the plant.

WHY are IR shingles a good thing for all of us?

  • Better Protection Against Storm Damage
  • When your neighbors roof is getting replaced and your’s makes it through the storm, then you save the deductible. 
  • Your customer can save on their premium
  • Higher value claims
  • Minimal installation difference

Roadrunner has numerous class 4 impact rated products to support your sales.
