The price of construction materials has been going up and down for the past several years, and it appears the ride is going to continue.
While certain material costs are stabilizing, like those for concrete, steel, wood and metals, others continue to increase. For example, drywall has also recently joined the list of materials that have gone up in price. We are seeing an almost 100% increase in drywall cost from a year ago.
Rising construction costs mean more and more project owners are needing to consider material alternatives to make their buildouts financially feasible.
Fortunately, there are plenty of alternatives you can consider that will still help you attain the build you want but at a price that is more in line with your budget and goals.
Budget-Friendly Construction Material Alternatives for Your South Florida Build
As general contractors, a major part of our job is to guide project owners through material selections. Project owners have a vision for their build, and we help make that happen. Very frequently there is more than one way to achieve the same outcome, so we work closely with all our build partners to find material alternatives when necessary.
A few budget-friendly alternatives that often enter the conversation include
- Prefabricated products – not only do these save money, but they can also speed up the project because they are built off-site and arrive ready for assembly.
- Reclaimed or sustainable materials – products like reclaimed wood or even metals can save money and reduce a project’s environmental impact.
- Precast concrete slabs – again, these are manufactured off-site.
Depending on your project, there are generally several material alternatives you can consider to both achieve your goals and remain on budget. Our team of construction experts will work with you every step of the way to ensure your design and deliverables meet your vision.
