Product Shortages and Prices Increases

Product Shortages and Prices Increases

Let's work through this together!

You may have already spoken to one of our team or read about this in the press, but we would like to keep you up to date with what we are currently experiencing within the building materials supply chain.

Whilst the continued impact of COVID is playing its part, the overall picture is more complex and we are seeing a number of shortages in key product areas and some price increases.

The team at RGB are working hard with existing and new suppliers to mitigate any impact this has on our ability to supply you and your business. However, in some areas we are seeing increases in demand that are far outstripping supply, which has meant that we have been unable to provide you with the quantities of product that we are normally able to.

These include, but are not limited to: Cement, Chipboard Flooring, OSB board, Timber, MDF, Rigid board and Glass insulation, products manufactured from polyethylene and polypropylene that includes plastic drainage, guttering and waste fittings.

In some of these areas we are experiencing double digit percentage price increases.

Please be mindful of this if you are pricing for work in the future, liaise closely with our branches on projects you have coming up and be assured that we are doing everything we can to continue the service you need to complete your projects.

We thank you for your patience and look forward to continuing to be of service to you.
