Rebuilding After Harvey

McCoy's is Here to Help

As so many of our Texas Gulf Coast customers rebuild after Hurricane Harvey, McCoy’s stands ready to help. McCoy’s Building Supply stores located in the regions affected by Harvey are offering special discounts on various materials to support our customers as they recover and rebuild. If you’re repairing damage caused by Harvey, please ask our store team member about special 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 high demand and changing costs for a number of the materials needed to recover and rebuild. McCoy’s has good support from our mills and other suppliers and is doing everything we can to help keep prices as low as possible in this current market.

[Updated 10/18]

Widespread trucking shortages are having short-term impacts on supply. Prompt loads are very hard to get due to these shortages.

The demand for plywood and OSB continues to be substantially greater than under normal circumstances due to both pre-hurricane preparations as well as post-hurricane rebuilding. 

Southern Pine Lumber
The Southern Pine market is beginning to flatten out as flood waters subsided and timberlands are now fully accessible. Post Hurricane Harvey and Irma many dealers and distributors rushed to buy to their cover needs which pushed up pricing at the mills. Now that we’ve had several weeks to monitor the situation, inventories are currently heavy which is leading to prices softening. 

Southern Pine Plywood is at 3-5 year highs on many of the sheathing products. The majority of this price increase can be attributed to the hurricanes that hit the US this summer. Flooding-related production issues, increased demand during pre-storm preparation and increased demand during post-storm rebuilding have driven up costs 36% over the last 6-7 weeks.

Western Species Lumber
Western species lumber prices continue rise due to a lack of log supply caused by wild fires in many timberlands in Canada.  British Columbia forests fires continue to burn. It’s reported that at least ten years of supply of timber has been lost. Costs continue to push higher on SPF, Hem-Fir and Douglas Fir. We expect to see continued increases in western species lumber prices over the next few weeks.

Fasteners
We are staying well ahead of demand on 1 ¼” coil roofing nails for our customers. Supply is still tight and will continue to be so for a few months. We have not had another cost increase yet and the retails are currently holding in place.

Rebar
Trade restrictions in the US on imported rebar and other factors have caused rebar to continue to increase in cost. We have seen a 4% increase in costs over the last 4 weeks with another 4-5% increase expected to follow. Some sources indicate we’ll continue to see increases in prices each month for the next three months.

Roofing
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
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.

Insulation
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.

Donations

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.
