Soaring Lumber Prices

By | May 5, 2021

To anyone planning a home improvement project, an addition or thinking about building a new home: Buyer beware. The price of lumber is hitting all-time highs.

Larry Parker just experienced it. He walked into Lowe’s the other day to buy a sheet of OSB plywood for a home project he was doing at his home.

“When I put the OSB in my cart, it was $26.95,” he said.

By the time he got to the checkout, however, he says the price on the store’s digital signboard had changed.

“It ended up being $33.50,” he said.”
