Price of EPDM roof materials


#1

Have the prices of EPDM roof materials increased a lot over the last two years, and if so is it related to the price of crude petroleum. I ask because I had requested estimates three years ago for a roof project that never started. The project is back in track now and it went out for bid again. The estimates that I have received are much higher than the ones three years ago.

Thank you for any info you can provide.

Don’t take this the wrong way. But just look at your grocery store, and the price’s on food. The cost of living has gone up for everything!!

For most roofing products if they are not petroleum based, petroleum is used in the manufacturing process. Everything is effected by the cost of petroleum given that the by products, raw materials, and finished product have to be moved somehow. Just think of how many fuel surcharges were all paying along the way.
