Material costs challenging for small construction companies keeping customer costs reasonable.
The rising cost of construction materials threatens to stagnate construction spending throughout the U.S. in the coming months. In general, construction material costs have risen more than 33% in the last year, according to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Branch says that recent data suggest that lumber prices are beginning to stabilize and even slightly decline, but the cost of other materials like metals and plastics continues to rise dramatically.
When it comes to material prices, Branch notes that “we are starting to see at least a twinkle of a light at the end of the tunnel,” adding that the “tunnel that we are in for material price inflation is very long, and we are likely to see escalated prices at least till the midpoint of 2022.” This will continue to exert downward pressure on small construction companies.

Amid a massive labor shortage, companies have boosted wages to try to attract and retain workers.
4 Major Challenges Facing the Construction Industry
It’s an interesting time for the construction industry. Growth has been strong the past several years, with U.S. construction spending now at an all-time high. Despite having weathered the storm of the Great Recession, the construction industry is still facing challenges, both old and new, moving forward.
Rising material and labor costs, labor woes, increased competition and shrinking profit margins are some of the challenges construction firms face. There’s also new rules and regulations that business owners must stay on top of like new OSHA rules or changes to building codes or the recent tax reforms.
Construction Sees No End to High Materials Costs, Labor Availability
Annual inflation rate in the US accelerated to 6.8% in November of 2021, the highest since June of 1982, and in line with forecasts. It marks the 9th consecutive month the inflation stays above the Fed's 2% target as global commodities rally, rising demand, wage pressures, supply chain disruptions and a low base effect from last year continue to push prices up. Upward pressure was broad-based, with energy costs recording the biggest gain (33.3% vs 30% in October), namely gasoline (58.1% vs 49.6%). Inflation also increased for shelter (3.8% vs 3.5%); food (6.1% vs 5.3%, the highest since October of 2008), namely food at home (6.4% vs 5.4%); new vehicles (11.1% vs 9.8%); used cars and trucks (31.4% percent vs 26.4%); apparel (5% vs 4.3%); and medical care services (2.1% vs 1.7%). On the other hand, the inflation slowed for transportation services (3.9% vs 4.5%). Excluding food and energy, inflation went up to 4.9% from 4.6%, the highest since June of 1991. s
