When the world as we knew it came to a screeching halt in March, I fully braced for what I assumed would be a cessation of all construction related activity. I was really surprised to see many large box stores remaining open and even more surprised that the pandemic has largely increased the demand for construction projects. Initially this was a good problem to have but as increased demand outpaced suppliers ability to supply materials, a new problem has emerged. In our region, a significant lumber shortage has been ongoing, making sourcing material very difficult while driving up prices for wood products.
The last installation I completed required multiple calls a day to suppliers for over a week until I was finally able to find enough pickets to complete the installation. With this difficulty, I am looking to focus on smaller projects over this summer. I am able to store a smaller quantity of materials at my home to build gates and make small fence repairs out of my inventory that I can replenish as I am able to source the material.
If you have a leaning fence, need fence post replaced or would like to replace or repair a gate, I hope you will consider contacting me today!
