The 1build 5×5: Material Costs for the week of June 27, 2022

Updated local costs for five key building materials in Pittsburgh, Dallas, Denver, Atlanta, and Sacramento.

Real time cost data is crucial for creating estimates that not only win, but work when it is time to call suppliers and bring materials to the field. And when that is paired with a hyper-local data set, AKA the numbers that matter in your county, you get the power of 1build cost data.

Each week we are updating five materials in five metro areas across the United States — Pittsburgh, Dallas, Denver, Atlanta, and Sacramento. The materials we chose represent some raw materials, as well as common materials across residential and commercial construction.
