RE: Concrete pricing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

There is a shortage of cement powder in the west. All cement suppliers in our area currently have placed restrictions on customers with as high as 2 week lead times for some pours.  Powder from Mexico has been imported for years; however, as I understand, there has been a US Tariff added restricting the import.  Resent news item was that this tariff might be lifted on this and timber products due to the need for reconstruction materials we need after the hurricanes.

Paul,

 

There is a shortage due to growth of developing nations.  We may start importing from Mexico.  This is a current event.

 

I don't know about Colorado particularly.  Isn't everything expensive in Colorado?  You may want to Google news  it.

Anyone have any insight on concrete pricing and / or the reason for high pricing in Colorado?
