Construction Material Costs Survey
Much has been written about the incredible price increases in some construction materials over the past year including steel, lumber, resins, etc. This has not just been an Alabama problem, but one affecting our industry nationwide.
In an attempt to get a better understanding of the impact to certain segments of industry, particularly bridge builders, guardrail, stripers etc., the Alabama Road Builders Association would like to ask anyone in the industry - members and non-members - that you send us:
1. A brief explanation of any losses sustained due to price increases; and
2. Total amount of losses due to the difference from quote to purchase of material for any job awarded since November 2020 to June 2021 here in Alabama.
Quantifying the impact will help us better explain the issue to industry and non-industry parties alike to paint a clearer picture of both the problem and the actual impacts. There is no need to include your business name. We are looking for an industry-wide number.
Please email Tom Layfield with your responses and questions regarding this survey.
