We get several phone calls, emails and text messages every day from people with questions about roofing. With that in mind we've add a Roofing FAQ's page to our website to help people get answers to the most common questions asked about roofing. We will be reviewing, and updating, this page on a regular basis. If you have a question about roofing in general, or about Genco Roofing services & products, leave a commnt on this post. We'll respond to your question and review it for inclusion in our Roofing FAQ's website page. You may also post a question of this post or send us your questions from the Contact Us form.
Before the Great Recession hit, Arizona’s economy was booming. Total employment grew more than 20 percent during the seven years leading to its prerecession high, while national employment grew by just over 5 percent. With a strong economy, growing investment and favorable weather conditions, new residents flocked to Arizona a record rates. Rapid population growth fueled demand for housing and related services and created expectations that the boom would continue to strengthen. Unfortunately, as is often the case, the boom turned to bust as values became stretched and credit eventually tightened, leading to a painful crash. Nonfarm payrolls dropped 11.7 percent from peak to trough, and today remain 6.5 percent below their prerecession levels. By comparison, U.S. payrolls declined 6.3 percent from their prerecession peak at the worst of the recession. Home prices plummeted, and residential construction came to a screeching halt. While this story is well known, Arizona turned a new chapter in 2013. Although it still has a long way to go, year-over-year residential construction growth has exceeded the national pace for the past two years. The forecast is for continued growth at a slow pace over the next 5 years. With the residential market improving and property values increasing this might be the right time to consider the home improvements that you postponed during the market crash.

Part of the new design concept for our website was to add an interactive blog. Over the next few months we'll be adding many new posts covering a wide range of topics. These topics will include answers to frequently asked questions, product information and what's new at Genco Roofing. We encourage you to take some time and leave comments to our posts.
