Demand seems to be as good as it was last year, said John Bavester, merchandise manager for wood products at Wickes Lumber Co. in Vernon Hills, Illinois.Everyone is optimistic that the takeaway from the builders will be as good as it was last year, if not slightly stronger, he added.Bavester said his own optimism was based on conversations with builders at the National Association of Home Builders show.Those are our customers, so that's straight from the horse's mouth, he said.Demand should stay strong for the year -- now if suppliers get it together, we'll have the semblance of a market again, Bavester said.
Random Lengths' Redd said the spate of production curtailments have failed to put a dent on supply -- and in fact current production levels are not far removed from a year ago when demand was slightly higher and prices much higher.
