Why Have Lumber Prices Risen?

Have you tried buying lumber at your local Lowe’s Home Improvement or Home Depot lately for your COVID-induced home project? Lumber prices have gone up, way up!

Here’s why! Lumber mills came to a grinding halt due to COVID-19 in March and April and production has yet to keep up with demand. This created a lumber shortage.

Lumber Prices are Going Through the Roof!

The statement below from the National Association of Homebuilders says how much the price of lumber has gone up.

New Homes Prices are Going Up – But How Much?

According to the National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB), it estimates buyers could see new home prices increase an extra 19.2%.

On a new home priced at $250,000 that 19% increase equals $47,500!!
