What concerns contractors and why should you care?
The Ontario Construction Secretariat just released their 2022 contractor survey and I thought I would share the results.
As you can see, material costs and availability are number 1 and 3 on the list. What does that mean to you? Simply, it is going to cost you more to get the work done this year versus last year. The best you might be able to do is to avoid the increase by working with your supplier (bulk buy, prepayment or consolidated work are a few options).
Availability, quality and rising labor costs will impact your timelines and your budgets. All three are high on the list of contractors concerns.
