7. SEGMENT INFORMATION
Our reportable segments are as follows:
Installation principally includes the sale and installation of insulation and other building products. We sell primarily to the residential new construction market, but have seen increasing activity in both the commercial construction industry and repair/remodel of residential housing. In addition to insulation, our installed product lines include rain gutters, garage doors, fireplaces, fireproofing and firestopping products, shower enclosures, closet shelving, and other building products.
Distribution principally includes the distribution of insulation and other building products. Our distributed products include insulation, insulation accessories, rain gutters, and roofing, among others. Distributed products are sold primarily to contractors and dealers (including lumber yards) from distribution centers in various parts of the United States.
Our segments are based on our operating units, for which financial information is regularly evaluated by our corporate operating executives in determining resource allocation and assessing performance. Accounting policies for the segments are generally the same as those for the Company. The key performance metric we use to evaluate our businesses is segment operating profit. Operating profit for the individual segments includes corporate costs which are allocated to the segments based on various metrics including sales and headcount.
Intercompany sales from the Distribution segment to the Installation segment are recorded by the Distribution segment with a profit margin and by our Installation segment at cost.
