Hurricane Ida is causing serious problems for the roofing industry in San Antonio. Parts and labor are pouring into Louisiana to tackle the thousands of storm-damaged roofs, draining resources from surrounding states. Commercial roofers are especially short on roof insulation and screws. A local roofer says the pandemic has already caused price hikes and supply problems, not to mention a labor shortage. As workers move towards higher paying jobs in Louisiana, the local situation is likely to worsen and roofs become more expensive.
