To address the ongoing supply chain crisis facing the roofing industry, the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) is holding a free Telephone Town Hall featuring leaders from some of the industry's most significant manufacturers.

The Telephone Town Hall will be held at 7:15 p.m. EDT Sept. 22 and feature the following panelists:

  • NRCA Chairman of the Board Rod Petrick, moderator
  • John Altmeyer, executive chairman of GAF Commercial Roofing
  • Jamie Gentoso, President, Firestone Building Products
  • Josh Kelly, senior vice president of OMG Roofing Products
  • Nick Shears, president of Carlisle Construction Materials
  • Joe Smith, president of Johns Manville Roofing Systems
  • Brian Whelan, executive vice president of SIKA North America
  • Trent Cotney, CEO of Cotney Attorneys & Consultants and NRCA general counsel

The speakers will provide updates and forecasts on materials and answer questions from attendees. In a video with RC, Cotney alluded to the supply chain issue only growing worse following Hurricane Ida.

“This problem, I think, is worse than any of us had even imagined,” Cotney said. “A lot of manufacturers are predicting that this is going to cause some roofing contractors to go out of business — you just can’t get the materials to sustain your crews and do the work that needs to be done.”
