The local home building market has seen a surge in demand. Jeff Dorner, Sales and Project Manager with Van’s Lumber & Custom Builders in Dyckesville, says the busy building season started early this year with projects already booking well into the fall. He says the only issue facing contractors is getting the supplies.
Dorner adds that the early supply ordering may cause a backlog in the future. He says the only notable increase in prices is for treated lumber, which has gone up considerably.
