Rising Construction Material Costs – How Will It Affect Your Build?

It’s no secret that construction material costs are still up from pre-pandemic numbers. Most sources say that prices will continue to be high throughout 2022. While this may be a setback for anyone planning a renovation or new build, Dunlap still has the tools to complete your project on time – and on budget. With decades of experience and a network of suppliers and subcontractors, we are able to complete jobs even under the most challenging circumstances. What do these high material costs mean for your project? Is now a good time to build?

Commercial Construction Is Growing

Many companies are returning to in-person work, creating a demand for more commercial spaces. In addition, restaurants and other retail businesses are rebounding from long shutdowns. The commercial sector is growing despite high construction material costs. Even though the initial project costs might be higher than you’d like, it’s still a good time to build or renovate your commercial space.

Proper Planning Is Key

We always operate with a detailed planning process, but it’s even more critical now. Preparing for contingencies has never been more important. With our 3 step system, we are able to plan and execute projects even when the outside world isn’t running smoothly. 

  • Pre-construction – Now is the time to get ahead of any possible set-backs. We prepare for changing material pricing and lead times, relying on our trusted vendors to secure materials ahead of construction.
  • Construction – Our vetted network of subcontractors keeps work moving on schedule, expertly adapting to changes in the field by rearranging tasks as needed to avoid delays.
  • Post-construction – We wrap up your project with the goal of complete customer satisfaction. We train you to operate any new equipment and provide warranty information. You’re always welcome to return to us with questions or concerns.
