With summer fast approaching, the fence industry is seeing price spikes for material. We have already been hit with several steel price increases. With gas prices where they are, and the inevitable higher summer gas prices, we will keep seeing price increases for materials through the end of the year.
This ends up hurting both the business owner and the customer. The higher price for material means the customer is paying more for the fence, and the business owner is affected by keeping his price competitive.
Its all part of business, but I wish it would steady!
