LUMBER PRICES SOAR WITH WAR IN UKRAINE

 HOW TO KEEP THE PRICES DOWN

After the Summer of 2021, it seemed like lumber prices were finally settling down. Unfortunately, that was not the case, as the pricing of 1,000 board feet rose to above $1,400.

Russia is a significant exporter of lumber products globally. Sanctions imposed on Russia will impact the market for lumber worldwide.

The Rise Has Multiple Causes

It is now an attractive option to consider ways to reduce lumber costs when building a new home, addition, or significant renovation.

Methods to Reduce Costs
