Material availability is becoming a serious issue. Shortages are impacting not only costs but lead times, too.
I've been finding some success in regularly communicating with my manufacturers and distributors as early into the project as possible, but I'm curious about how others are handling this?
What have you found to work during this odd and chaotic time?
It seems to be a supply shortage for all building materials, even out in CA. My day job includes working to support CA Career Technology Education programing. We have had a very tough time securing materials for our Fine Woodworking courses (residential construction and cabinet-making).
