DIY/Building plans & other consumer goods - you may experience supply problems!


Recommended Posts

I noticed recently that local DIY stores had empty shelves and when I checked national websites of the major stores, there were many products showing as out of stock.  So if you are planning any projects during the next few months, suggest that you check on availability of everything you need.

Building materials are running short in the UK, leaving DIY projects in doubt and building companies under pressure.

The Construction Leadership Council has warned that cement, some electrical components, timber, steel and paints are all in short supply.

It blamed "unprecedented levels of demand" that are set to continue.

The Federation of Master Builders said that some building firms may have to delay projects and others could be forced to close as a result.

"Small, local builders are being hit hardest by material shortages and price rises," said chief executive Brian Berry.

"We can't build our way to recovery from the pandemic if we don't have the materials."

I can believe it

 

I've put off several home projects as the cost of wood is ridiculous 

 

A 2.4m 2x2 has gone from 2.20 to 6.60 at my local wood supplier - I won't even go into larger than that

 

Need to build a shelter over the hot tub and a new fence but waiting until it drops again
