Shingles Shortages
Shingles are largely made from asphalt and petroleum Hy products that have become scares in the past couple of years.
Even once the shingle supply gets back to normal, there will be the issue of logistics. Transportation and distribution have also seen labor shortages from the pandemic
Worldwide inflation has been on the rise consequently this will impact the cost of supplies, labor therefor Cost increase in services and products.
Wait and delivery time will also feel a huge impact from an average of 6 to 8 weeks for installation timelines for roof projects.

Property Insurance Special Session
The Florida Legislature passes two bills to lighten the state’s insurance crisis as the special session gathered that homeowners and the insurance market are about to see a change in property insurance rates in Florida. 
One of the bills approved was CS/SB 2-D on property insurance, which helps insurers with their risk portfolio by creating reinsurance to assist policyholders. The other one was SB 4-D on building safety, that have thorough inspections mandatory for condominiums and that includes an entire section about the roofing system. Both bills were also approved May 26th in the Florida Senate. 
For the roofing industry, it is too early to understand the impact of these new laws.
