This will also drive up the cost of existing homes. Around here, at
least homes are only the market for a few days, if that.

Talking to the main distributor for Trex in Michigan, they said that Trex, at that time, was only allowing them to make deliveries on 12 orders a month in order to keep production quantities in line with the orders. Don’t know if that still is an issue today. One good thing is that since we were ordering such a large quantity of decking, fascia, and railings, we got a 13% discount on our order because of an ongoing program.

> Cevil, Nothing seems to go down in price other than gasoline that fluctuates widely at times. I understand why you would build with steel vs stick wood. I've been trying to get a relatively large deck built on to the house the last year or so. Didn't work out last summer going to try again this year. Wood has increased in price so much that composite looks very attractive now. Used composite on my deck in AZ and am very pleased with how it has stood up to the intense sun and heat there. Here in WA the enemy is rain and almost constant dampness. The exact opposite. Have to use a different composite here due to the unique weather. Will start getting bids again soon. I suspect the bids will increase substantially.Sent from my Galaxy

Prices go up and almost never come down. Especially steel. If I build anything here in tornado land it will be steel. I plan to move from here in a few years and build my last home. It will be steel. Wood structures get blown apart with the storms tornadoes and relentless wind in this country. Last 2 days it has been 25-30mph sustained winds gusting to 40.CecilOn 4/26/2021 8:27 AM, szabelski at wildblue.net wrote:> Wife and I have decided to put off building a pole barn this year.
