In its January 2023 supplier update to customers, Jewson says that prices of building products are going up yet again due to the continuing rising costs of fuel, gas and energy impacting on both raw materials and manufacturers.
Bricks are going up by ‘up to’ 20%, as are drainage pipes. Block paving is going up by up to 19.5%.
Aerated blocks, plaster and roofing materials are increasing by up to 18%; plasterboard and specialist board by up to 17%.
There are also double-digit price prices for aggregates, PIR insulation and for heating and plumbing materials.
All price rises are subject to local variations.
