About the COVID-19 Lumber Shortage
Increased nationwide lumber shortages have been an unexpected side effect in the American economy since the onset of the COVID-19 global pandemic. With the subsequent skyrocketing prices of lumber due to short supply and high demand, Deck-Top is positioned as an ideal alternative to replacing or refacing your deck or dock. Read on for more information on how Deck-Top can help you save money during the COVID-19 Lumber Shortage.
Reasons for the Current COVID-19 Lumber Shortage:
- Lumber mills in the US and Canada have undergone major cutbacks in production over concerns of a worsening economy, and the health and safety of mill employees has also been a contributing factor to these cutbacks.
- Substantial increases in do-it-yourself projects from those under quarantine has created an unanticipated increase in demand for construction materials and this in turn has caused a strain on supply chains.
Supply vs. Demand
The current shortage of lumber, in conjunction with an increase in do-it-yourself projects/construction projects in the residential & commercial sectors, has caused prices for construction materials to skyrocket. With decking season in full swing, this increase in material cost has become a prohibitive force to contend with when building or renovating your pre-existing deck.
