Number of builders reporting a shortage of framing lumber surges
from Eye On Housing
Shortages of framing lumber are now more widespread than at any time since the National Association of Home Builders began tracking the issue in a consistent way in 1994, according to results from the May 2018 survey for the NAHB/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index. Over 30 percent of single-family builders responding to the survey's special questions in May reported a shortage of framing lumber, outdistancing the other 22 listed building products and materials by a wide margin.
