The U.S. ban on Russian oil will lead to price increases for roofing contractors, but there are ways to work around them, says Trent Cotney, general counsel for the National Roofing Contractors Association.

“Part of the techniques and tactics that contractors are having to use is they’ve got to figure out how to creatively adapt to contract provisions if they can’t get them out of the contracts,” said Cotney.

In this Legal Insights episode, Cotney discusses how the Russia-Ukraine war is affecting more than just gas prices and how contractors can work with their general contractors to alleviate the pain of price increases.

In our previous episode, Cotney provided a broader view of how the war will affect the roofing industry, including immigration and cyberattacks. Listen to the episode here.
