Will soaring prices for building materials lead to a drop in housing starts?

How many contractors called upon for renovation work have been faced with problems such as delivery times, out-of-stock at the supplier, delays in transport to construction sites, or a low level of local inventory.

How to explain this outbreak?

 

This soaring material prices can be explained by the impact of the pandemic which has spread to almost all sectors of activity. This has had repercussions on both large and small renovations.

However, the price of materials, which had broken all records during the pandemic, in particular for lumber, but also for gypsum or aluminum, is largely responsible for the slowdown announced by the organizations concerned.
