Hurricane Ida Hampers Local Roofing Industry

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.
