However, bear in mind the possible factors that could influence the cost of building materials at this time. While it is still the period of New Year, businesses are struggling to keep up with the increased price in fuel.  Additionally, region or location would definitely influence the price of building materials because traders would need to cover up for the cost of transporting their goods.

 

Do we expect increase in price? Building materials are sold at competitive prices so you do not have to expect an abrupt increase in prices too soon. However, you can be fortunate to purchase from traders with previous stocks.

Not to be left out, there is still a factor to give you strong bargaining power and reason to expect stability in prices.  It is nothing else than the good part – the appreciating value of the Naira. However, we hope that the old stench of fuel price hike would go too soon before it has its negative impacts on prices of building materials.
