A 2015 survey by Consumer Reports reveals 80% of American shoppers say they prefer to buy goods made in the United States, with about 60% of them even willing to pay 10% more for an American-made product.
In line with the 4th of July, it would be worth discussing the importance of American-made products, especially when it comes to improving the home. Harmony Home Improvement, your local provider of roofing and vinyl siding installation services, has more on this topic.
More Jobs for Future Generations
An increase in demand for American-made products means that more people will need to create them. It will spur the growth of the manufacturing sector. More jobs will be created which then pushes revenue back into the economy, making it stronger.
Focus on the Environment
Manufacturing roofing products on U.S. soil has taken advantage of current technologies that lean toward renewable and eco-friendly practices. For instance, GAF, a leading roofing material manufacturer, has been dedicated to extending the life cycles of their different types of roofing. The company is also given numerous certifications for its impressive waste diversion measures.
Maintaining Fair Labor Laws
Deck installation services providers like us only offer products that are made in support of the current labor laws. When we install roofs, siding, decks, windows and doors, you can be sure that the people behind the production of these products received fair wages and performed their jobs within reasonable hours and within safe working conditions.
A product with the “Made in the USA” label epitomizes top-notch quality and excellent workmanship. Price tags may be higher than that of foreign imports, the cost per use is often lower. Products made here will last longer than its foreign counterpart.
