A Great Builder Overcomes Challenges

As supply chain issues and labor shortages continue into 2022, it’s safe to say that the past few years have provided significant challenges for us as a trusted local builder – and for our communities. As always, Dunlap strives to deliver top-quality work regardless of the circumstances. While the world may be unpredictable right now, you’ll always know what to expect from us. Here are just some of the ways we are rising to the challenges 2022 may bring.

Procuring Builder Supplies

The trickle-down effect of building material shortages can be seen all the way down to the homeowner looking for lumber at a local hardware store. Prices are trending higher than average, which makes projects more expensive right out of the gate. However, we have dealt with supply shortages and volatile pricing before, so we have ways to mitigate the damage. We utilize a large network of vendors which helps us secure hard-to-find material. In addition, our pre-construction services identify materials that may be problematic early on so we can find appropriate alternatives. 

Managing Labor Shortages

Over the past 40+ years, Dunlap has formed excellent working relationships with talented tradesmen and subcontractors. Our construction team members are highly qualified and vetted, and we work hard to ensure we always have the right person for the job ready to go. 

Communication and Transparency

Perhaps one of Dunlap’s biggest strengths, clear communication is pivotal to handling challenges and managing expectations. During the pre construction phase, we’ll be transparent about the current landscape. We may make suggestions about materials and timelines to help keep the project on track – and on budget. 

The mark of a great builder is how well they can weather unpredictable challenges while maintaining good working relationships with both their client and the construction team. Ultimately, that’s what gets the job done! We take a lot of pride in the work performed over the past few years, knowing the amount of faith our clients placed in us during a very difficult time. The Dunlap way will always be customer service-focused backed by high-quality craftsmanship, no matter the circumstances.
