CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – Home building materials like lumber, vinyl siding, and pipes are skyrocketing amid the pandemic. This has lead to steep price increases, especially in lumber, nationwide.

The National Association of Home Builders reports a 250% increase in the price of lumber since April 2020.​ The cost to build a single-family home has jumped $36,000 on average since last spring.
