What You Need to Know About the Current Lumber Shortage

Ever since the pandemic started, lumber prices have risen rapidly. This can be attributed to the high demand and tight supply. Many framing contractors have failed to finish their jobs or start them due to the current situation with lumber shortage. On the other hand, US Framing does not face with this problem and we are able to continue with our wood framing projects. If you are looking for a reliable wood framing company amidst the pandemic, read on as we explain what you need to know about the current lumber shortage.

About the Lumber Shortage

Since the onset of COVID-19, lumber prices have tripled. Although it is good news for the housing and construction industry that the economy is making a comeback, which led to a renovation and development craze, it is also bad news due to the resulting lumber price surge. In addition, COVID-19 restrictions do not make it easy for the lumber industry to keep up with the demand. Due to the high demand and low supply, many wood framing contractors and subcontractors are defaulting on projects. This is a huge problem for businesses that need wood framing services for their commercial building projects as any delay can disrupt their business plans.
