Some have not been fortunate to deal with honorable suppliers..It's the age-old supply-and-demand situation.
Building supplies are up 50-200% in the last year. Finally trickling down to finish-grade hardwoods - Hard Maple and Poplar went up 50-100% in 2 weeks.
Thankfully, I had confirmed POs in November for 5 T/Ls of HM at 2150. More thankfully, the mill is honoring those even though current pricing is at 3500 or even more.
Builders are really caught and some are saying they cannot deliver...
I'm sure contracts are already written with escape or escalation clauses...
