Building Inspections Alert
Builders are experiencing major delays with the availability of windows and doors from their building suppliers due to production and distribution issues related to COVID-19. This has resulted in inspection delays in many jurisdictions due to the lack of coverings of openings and the ability of builders to move forward with insulation and drywall.
Following correspondence with NCHBA Director of Codes and Construction Robert Privott, the North Carolina Department of Insurance, Office of State Fire Marshall, Engineering Division has issued a Guidance Paper: Window and Door Installation Requirement for Framing and Insulation Inspection Temporarily During COVID-19 on their new website that should be of assistance in addressing this issue. The Guidance Paper can be accessed at this link: https://www.ncosfm.gov/media/2089/open
Builders Cite Building Material Prices as Top Challenge
Nearly nine out of 10 builders expect building material prices will be their top challenge in 2021. To show the magnitude of this problem, the 89% builder response is down from the 96% of builders who reported this issue as their top concern in 2020.
Along the same lines, the No. 2 problem builders faced in 2020 was the availability/time it takes to obtain building materials. This issue was cited by 78% of the respondents last year, while 80% of builders report this will be a key concern in 2021. The high incidence of builders reporting building material problems is not surprising given recent increases in material prices.
