Comment | More

The National Roofing Contractor Association announced late last week that it is postponing its annual National Roofing Week due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The celebration will now be held Aug. 23-29.

Organized by NRCA, National Roofing Week traditionally takes place each June to increase awareness across the U.S. about the significance of roofs to every home and business and share the good deeds of the industry.

National Roofing Week also promotes the importance of hiring a professional roofing contractor and making informed decisions about maintaining or replacing any roof system.

Further details on this year’s National Roofing Week are to be released at a later date.

More from the NRCA

In addition to canceling events, the NRCA has been vocal during the current global health crisis as it penned a letter to President Donald J. Trump early last month to express concerns over what defined “essential businesses” and “essential workers.”

The letter asked the administration to provide clear guidance regarding what an essential industry and essential worker is and noted that the roofing industry should be cited as essential.

“Recent emergency orders and guidance threaten the ability of roofing contractors, manufacturers, distributors and other industry employers to operate and aid in the response to the coronavirus pandemic,” the letter read.

The NRCA went on to note that the roofing industry—including all manufacturers, raw material suppliers, distributors and contractors—is an essential $100 billion sector with an estimated 1.1 million employees altogether.

The organization also compiled a list of resources and a separate webpage for contractors looking for direction during the health crisis.

Resources include:

  • information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, World Health Organization and Occupational Safety and Health Administration;
  • legal resources, including contract provisions;
  • insurance resources; federal financial assistance;
  • employers’ and employees’ rights; and
  • community notices.
