In Nashville, market permits are still being issued at a rapid pace. Roofing prices continue to increase, but product availability seems to be getting somewhat better.

Supply chain issues, escalation and staffing.

There will always be a need for construction. There will always be work, whether it's new ground-up buildings or remodeling or repairs. I feel that some markets will continue to be vibrant and grow.
