Price Increases and Supply Update 25/8/21
Unfortunately material costs are still increasing month on month, and some suppliers of specialist items are reluctant to give us costs for materials, as their costs are changing so rapidly. We are also finding that with the building trade, being so busy at present, and the amount of staff our suppliers have isolating, that this is also slowing our suppliers responses.
With this in mind, please accept our apologies for any delay there may be getting prices of certain items back to you. We are doing everything in our power to get these prices back from suppliers, but we are aware that at times there are hold ups in getting those costs back.
Thank you for your patience, Novobuild Team
Price Increases and Supply Update 13/5/21
Material costs across the industry have risen significantly the first half of this year. As a company we are used to and plan for the standard 2% - 3% rise in costs in line with inflation. However, some of our materials have risen up to 30% in the first half of the year with possible further increases in July!
On top of this some materials are becoming difficult to source and some struggling to get into the country. Lead times for most materials have increased, with others having no actual dates on when they will be in at all. Some (that we were used to being) ‘off the shelf items’ are now also subject to small lead times.
So as always, we are doing our best to keep jobs on time and on price, by ordering required materials ahead of time to store ready for booked works, but please just be aware some matters are out of our hands. We’re aware we are not the only firm dealing with this (or indeed industry dealing with price increases). We are simply passing on information to try and keep you all in the loop.
Let’s hope things settle quickly and return to some sort of normality
Thank you, Novobuild Team.
