nodle Posted March 5, 2021 Share Posted March 5, 2021 So I thought I would mention the cost of rising materials lately. So I have been speaking with many vendors lately for different building material prices, and it's getting insane. I spoke to some steel building builders and metal prices are soaring. Then wood prices are insane. OSB boards went from $10.00 a sheet in December to over $30 now. Tripled in price in 3 months. I spoke to a vendor yesterday about getting some SCH 40 PVC piping he told me it went up 18% last week along, and he expects it to rise next week as well due to all the repairs down in Texas because of the storms. He said if you can buy it right now, get it because there is a shortage going one. We had a lady stop in and she has had to cut down the square footage of her new home due to the rising costs, she said it just keeps going up and soon they won't be able to afford to build at all. Also I have I read the typical gas price in America is $3.02 a gallon, almost a dollar raise in two months. Crude has doubled. Grocery prices are rising as well along with shipping costs. Quite a bit going on since the new administration took over. You will feel it in your pocketbook and were only two months in. I may have to bump this thread in a year from now and see how the prices have changed. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
