NEWS

Lumber Prices - Not Out of the Woods Yet

On the lumber price front, many of you may have seen media reports about the recent sharp drop in prices.

While this is good news, the lumber crisis is far from over. Since April 2020, the price of softwood plywood has increased by more than 200 percent and the price of oriented strand board (OSB) has skyrocketed by nearly 500 percent.

 

The bottom line is that the OSB-led changes in softwood lumber prices that occurred between April 2020 and July 2021 have added $29,833 to the price of an average new single-family home and raised the rental price of a new apartment unit by $92.

Moreover, most builders have not been able to take advantage of the recent drop in framing lumber prices because producers are still selling off lumber that they purchased from mills when prices were at their peak.

So, when buyers read that lumber prices are coming down, builders need to educate them about this price lag.

 

Moving Forward

Looking ahead, NAHB & NCHBA will remain laser-focused on not only lowering lumber prices and increasing supply, but also keeping pressure on policymakers to improve supply chains for all building materials in order to protect housing affordability.

The NAHB advocacy team – Government Affairs, Communications, Economics and Legal – continues to work doggedly on all fronts to find solutions that will ensure a lasting and stable supply of lumber and other building materials for the home building industry at competitive prices.

Construction Exempt from COVID Rule

OSHA in June issued an emergency temporary standard with new enforceable requirements for employers to protect workers from COVID-19. But the new standard, which goes into effect immediately, will apply only to workers in healthcare settings.

NAHB, through its partnership in the Construction Ind- ustry Safety Coalition, spent months educating OSHA officials about the nature of residential construction work and potential disease transmission. Those effort were successful, as OSHA recognized that home building activities did not need to be included.
