We know that the price of building materials is at the forefront of many peoples minds at present – particularly those currently building and anyone who plans to do anything in the near future.

We have tracked the price of hundreds of popular building materials across the industry and use this data to show you how costs are increasing or decreasing.

We have calculated figures on a per m2 or m3 basis and taken an average to help you see general trends. As time goes on the size of the data set will increase and trends can be seen over a monthly and eventually yearly basis. We hope you find this useful info.
