What Is Causing the Shingle Shortage?

The shingle shortage has been influenced by various factors. The initial cause was the COVID-19 pandemic, which resulted in temporary closures of manufacturing facilities and created numerous supply chain difficulties. Then recent weather events including thunderstorms, floods, and hailstorms further intensified the demand for shingles. Roofing suppliers and manufacturers are working hard to keep up with the growing demand.
