RT3 Members Beacon and RoofersCoffeeShop Team up for Trends Research

The 2023 RoofersCoffeeShop® Trends Survey is about to wrap up and is seeking final input from the industry. For the sixth year, the survey asks contractors to report on topics regarding current business issues, training and technology needs, as well as involvement with associations and vocational schools. Sponsored by Beacon, this trends survey seeks to identify top business needs and challenges roofing contractors are facing.  

“We are very happy to partner with Beacon again to better understand what contractors are seeing and experiencing in the industry as they continue their valuable work of roofing and protecting buildings nationwide,” stated Heidi J. Ellsworth, RCS president.  

Since 2016, the Coffee Shop has reviewed and utilized the results of the trends surveys to cater and develop our content to what you want and need to continue what you do best. “Collecting and comparing this data allows us to get a good pulse on the roofing industry and understand contractors’ needs and challenges. This information allows our partners and ourselves to adapt our offerings in order to help contractors continue to be successful,” Heidi shared.  

As with previous years, some questions are the same so we can compare year-over-year data, but we have also added new questions focused on vocational schools, involvement with roofing contractor associations and engagement with roofing distributors. By including topics like these, we can better understand what contractors are experiencing first-hand and what is happening in the industry in real time. 

This year, we’re eager to see your responses to, “Which of the following sustainable practices do you incorporate or sell?” Sustainability has been a topic of conversation for a while now and more owners are choosing sustainable products and practices for their homes and buildings. Across all of our sites — RoofersCoffeeShop, MetalCoffeeShop™ and AskARoofer™ — we’ve noticed an increase in interest surrounding our content focused on going green. In order to remain relevant and competitive in the industry, it’s important to be knowledgeable about what home and building owners are demanding. 

The survey will close on September 30, so get your responses in now! We know your time is valuable, and by taking the 2023 Trends Survey, not only will your company benefit, but so will the industry. Sharing your opinions and observations with the rest of the industry is invaluable and truly makes an impact. 

Participants will be entered into drawings for gift cards as a thank you for participating.
