My best so far is that roofing nails are harder to get so mechanically-adhered tpo prices are going up. And they can’t get the metal to make the cans for the glue which causes fully-adhered to go up.

Everything is up. I had a bid just accepted for 280k to build a wooden fence around a community. They sat on it for 30 days. my material has gone up 24k in the last 30 days. Great start to the project by asking for a change order on day 1.

Can you elaborate when you get a moment? This is an interesting situation in an inflationary environment that I haven't seen in my career.

I sell building materials and can confirm that metal and ceiling tile prices will increase again in June by 10%. Also the lead time on metal are out to a 3 to 4 weeks and insulation is out to a month as well. If you have accounts start ordering material you need so that it can be reserved for you. Also, silicone and any latex products especially in the south.

I thought I would get ahead of the man, and buy a sawmill. So I ordered one, and was put on backorder immediately. It's like a conspiracy or something I swear...
