“One thing we’ve learned looking at data coming out of the Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies as well as John Burns Real Estate Advising Firm is that homes that are older than 45 years tend to be have a higher repairs. And in fact the amount of money spent on repairs in those older homes is 5.6% higher than the amount of money paid to repair a home that is 20, 24 years old.”

Summit Materials

CEO Tom Hill: 2Q-16 Earnings Call
Houston] there is definitely some softness as a result of lower oil prices, especially on the north side of town which is not one of our biggest markets, and also on the high end of the residential. We follow several forecasters in Houston. Metrostudy I think is forecasting single-family permit growth there in 2017, and also John Burns is another one that we follow specifically on Houston. He would be for us another small decline in 2017 there, so somewhere probably in between is where it will actually be but I think Houston is a great market and we have a great position there.
