  • Trickle down materials increase

    I was in the lumber yard today purchasing a bit of sheet rock mud for a repair, while there the sales guys showed me a chart from the various sheet rock / wallboard manufacturers: An across the board price increase of 35% on all sheet rock / wallboard products effective January 1 2012. I can only imagine that is not good news for the rest of our building materials (Plumbing HVAC products).

          The list had every major manufacturer that I have ever heard of including a plant (American Gypsum) a short distance from my home. All are raising prices JAN 1, 2012 by 35%.
