We’ll provide a sneak peek of the data from our exclusive survey of residential and commercial contractors in our State of the Industry webinar, which will take place Feb. 14 at 2 p.m. Eastern time. Click here, to register

The survey data covers sales volumes for last year, expected sales volume for this year and expectations for the year ahead. We also asked questions about the biggest problems contractors face in 2012, the International Green Construction Code, and changes in OSHA enforcement policies.

We’ll be joined on the webinar by Bob Tafaro and Paul Bromfield of GAF, who will offer their insights on the year behind us and trends to watch going forward. It should be an interesting hour, so sign up for the live event and take advantage of the opportunity to submit your questions to our speakers. Remember, if you miss our live event, you can always view it on demand on www.roofingcontractor.com.  

On a personal note, I’d like to thank GAF for sponsoring the survey and the webinar, and Allied Building Products for helping us reach out to such a large sample of contractors. I’d also like to thank BNP Market Research for conducting the survey and compiling the report, and especially to Andrea Littles for taking the time to give me what amounted to a seminar in statistics. I’d also like to express my gratitude to the contractors who took the time to complete the survey and share their stats. We appreciate everyone’s help.
