Rebuilding After Harvey

McCoy's is Here to Help

In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, we want you to know McCoy’s stands ready to help. McCoy’s Building Supply stores located in the regions affected by Harvey are offering discounts on various materials to support citizens as they recover and rebuild. If you’re repairing damage caused by Harvey, please ask your cashier for Hurricane Harvey Relief Pricing.

Commodity Market Report

Many of the commodity markets are rapidly changing and McCoy’s wants to make sure all of our customers have the information they need to make the best purchasing decisions. The commodity report below discusses the rapidly rising costs and demand of commodity materials needed to recover and rebuild.

[Updated 9/18]

In the wake of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, many of the commodity markets are rising very rapidly. The demand for plywood and OSB has been exponentially greater than under normal circumstances due to the pre-hurricane preparations as well as post-hurricane rebuilding. This has caused an 18% increase in the cost of plywood sheathing and an 8% increase on OSB since before Harvey made landfall. This has impacted price and availability of product, most distributors have many holes in inventory and mill order files are out into October.

Southern Pine Lumber
The log supply of Southern Pine has been reduced due to flooding in East Texas and Louisiana, where many Southern pine plywood mills source a significant portion of their logs. This has also impacted Southern Pine Lumber, as those are the same areas they would historically source most of their logs from as well. Southern Pine lumber costs have increased up to 3% and are expected to continue to rise over the next 3-4 weeks.

Western Species Lumber
Western species lumber is on the rise as well due to a lack of log supply caused by wild fires in many timberlands in Canada and the U.S. Pacific Northwest. We have already seen several mills shut down due to having no logs to mill, and expect more to shut down in the future. The flooding has also impacted transportation, specifically on products shipping on the railroad. There are several embargoes to certain Texas destinations due to parts of the rail being washed out. We are only just now beginning to see service restored to most of the Houston area. Over all, the western species lumber market has risen 3-6% with the expectation that it will continue to rise another 10-20% over the next 6 weeks.

Trade restrictions in the US on imported rebar and the threat of pending 232 investigations diminish the US market attractiveness to foreign mills and demand at domestic mills have all caused rebar to continue to see an increase in cost. We have seen a 4% increase in costs over the last 4 weeks with another 4-5% increase expected to follow.

All roofing-related products will be impacted by these hurricanes as well. With the amount of damage in Florida and Texas, we are anticipating that the demand for shingles will exceed the supply. This will cause a shortage and possible allocation of shingles and other roofing-related product lines, and could impact costs if the demand is sustained over a period of time.

Drywall demand has increased roughly 700% from normal volumes in the Greater Houston Markets, causing supply to become very tight. Many manufacturers have begun allocating how much product they will sell to each of their customers, which creates a shortage at the retail level. This could ultimately lead to increased prices and will make it difficult for retailers to keep up with the demand at the contractor and consumer levels.

Fiberglass Insulation is being hit hard as it relates to the flooding in Houston, demand is up significantly and supply is starting to be effected. The shipping times from the manufacturers has increased with the potential to see prices rise as well.

PVC Pipe
PVC pipe has increased 10-11% due to resin plants along the Texas coast being down due to the effects of Hurricane Harvey. Currently, the price increases are only affecting PVC pipe not PVC pipe fittings.  

Copper Wire
World copper markets had copper at $2.50/lb on Jan. 1 and $3.10/lb on Sept. 1 for an increase of ~24% which has resulted in a 10% increase in the price of copper electrical wire since January 1, 2017.

Cleaning Up After a Flood

McCoy’s wants to help our neighbors get back into their homes as soon as possible, but it can be difficult to know where to start when it comes to cleaning up. That’s why we partnered up with Matt Risinger, Contractor and Building Science Expert, to give you the 5 steps you need to clean up after a flood.  Check out the video below for tips on safety, demo, disinfection, and drying out your house.

Tools Needed for Flood Clean-up

Having the correct tools on hand when you start cleaning up can make the job safer and easier.  Matt Risinger walks us through which tools and equipment you need for personal protection, demo and sanitizing your home, as well as which tools you should avoid.

National Assistance Hotlines


For shelter locations, text SHELTER and your zip code to 4FEMA (43362)
(ex.  “SHELTER 01234”)

Disaster Recovery Center locations

Individuals affected by Hurricane Harvey can apply for assistance through FEMA immediately. In order to discredit rumors and provide accurate information to anyone in need of assistance, FEMA has created a Hurricane Harvey Rumor Control. Please check this webpage often for updates on rumors in circulation.

It can be challenging to find credible, reputable organizations to donate to during times of crisis. McCoy’s has researched the organizations listed below so you can be confident your donation dollars will be used directly toward Hurricane Harvey relief. This list will continue to be updated as community needs change from emergency response to clean-up efforts and eventually to re-building.

Red Cross

Operation Blessing International

Texas Baptist Men

United Methodist Committee on Relief

  • Give monetary donations to your local organizations. These organizations will be around long-term to see the recovery and rebuild to the end.
  • Donate cash rather than clothes so that organizations can buy exactly what is needed to help those who were affected. This also allows the organizations the option to make purchases locally.
  • If you want to volunteer, make sure you’re with an organization which has members trained in handling crisis situations. Showing up without a plan or training can cause more problems than solutions. If you’re with an organization, listen to the leaders and don’t try to change their system.
  • Wait a month or more to volunteer. There will be plenty of volunteers at the beginning of the crisis, but this is a long term event and volunteers will be in short demand after just a few weeks.
  • Help protect the privacy of those affected by not posting photos of you or anyone else volunteering on social media.
