As of 6/26/2024

It has been a strange market the last few weeks, with overall prices remaining fairly stable with one very notable exception: depending on sheet thickness and size, OSB has dropped between 10% and 15%.  We saw some small increases in wider DF 2x materials, but only about 1%.  The only other item to drop was 2×4 – 92-5/8” studs, which shed 6%.

We’re still hearing news of mills ramping down production to stabilize soft prices, so it feels a bit counter-intuitive to see these price adjustments.  One item specific item that has been a bit challenging to source has been 2×6 cedar; apparently 1×6 is going at a premium, so they’ve shifted production toward that material.

As you get ready for summer quotes, just a reminder to always include escalation clauses in your bids!
