Well we are halfway through the year already - seems like madness! Time to start decorating for christmas?! July was a busy month with the trades all being pretty flat tak. The demand for middle and top end work has been seen to increase with the lower end of the market dropping off.
The falling dollar has an impact on imported timber so Oak will be costing a little bit more in the foreseeable future.
Victorian Ash is good buying at the moment with American Oak looking slightly higher than usual. American White Oak is still our largest selling timber although Red Oak is a cost effective option when considering an Oak floor - especially if you intend to colour it. NZ natives are still popular.
