Metal Lath is going up
Metal lath prices just went up 10% the first of March with another price increase expected of 10-20% in April. Buy now.
Who knows what the summer will bring.
Contractors should provide an escalator clause in their contracts for Summer and Fall work.
This provides for a price increase based on the increased price of lath.

Readers have written me dying of curiosity what the next points are.
Yes, acrylic additives is one of them.
Write me and I'll send them to you.

I am still working on my book. Maybe it will
be finished in a couple more years.
