Solving the Lumber Crisis

All NAHB Members Who Received a PPP Loan Can Have Their Loan Forgiven

Although framing lumber prices have fallen precipitously in recent months after peaking in mid-May, the overall prices of wood products used in home building continue to soar. For example, the price of softwood plywood has increased by more than 200% and oriented strand board (OSB) prices have skyrocketed nearly 500% since April 2020.

Unfortunately, lumber prices are trending higher yet again, and experts are forecasting these increases will continue throughout the fall and winter months. NAHB recently sent a letter to President Biden urging swift action to curtail this market volatility.
