As the New Year begins, it is essential to predict what trends would cause an improvement in a specific business. Here, we talk about the trends which would cause a huge improvement in the existing roofing services. This way all the people related to this field including contractors, designers and other professionals in the industry can plan their services efficiently for the coming year. Some of the key points which have the ability to cause noticeable improvements in every business related to roofing services is given as follows.
1. In the previous year, the roof designing was done to just meet the minimum requirements. However, 2019 will see this trend slowly diminishing. Earlier the products were designed just to withstand its performance till the warranty period. It is predicted that this coming year more emphasis will be given on training and educating the professionals about designing a product with good quality. With this, it can be expected that the knowledge gap about these services will be bridged and a product with robust system design can be produced which would have improved performance and which would add value to the owner as well.
2. It is anticipated that in 2019 with the growth in awareness about sustainable development, many roofing construction choices will be revisited and revised. More and more sustainable options will become available to customers for use. Professionals have started analyzing the harmful effects of roofing services to the environment. For example, when low-cost design options like single-ply systems are opted for, after a short period of time they would need to be completely taken off and thrown away ultimately to the landfills. This would create a lot of wastage. In 2019, more emphasis will be given on creating and using products which minimize this wastage. Use of designs like multi-ply modified bitumen will largely be encouraged. This is because this design would just need a few repairs from time to time. This choice does not even create much waste as they need not be replaced or thrown away after a just short period of time.
3. There has been a shortage of labourers as the year 2018 came to an end. This problem of labour shortage will continue in 2019 as well. The positive outcome of this situation is that new innovative products and tools are being introduced which are very easy to use, have high efficiency and need only a few skilled labourers. If the labourer shortage continues for a longer period, then the professionals and contractors in this field would need to be educated about the availability of these new innovative designs. Along with this, they would also need to be trained to efficiently use these designs.
The overall demand for roofing services has increased and is predicted to keep increasing throughout the year 2019. With the increase in demand for roofing services, the labour shortage is predicted to continue in 2019. The challenge would be to keep up with this increased demand by making smart and innovative choices to improve the efficiency of the different processes involved with minimum skilled labourers.
