Lumber prices have recently skyrocketed due to significant shortages of the commodity, a shortage that has been made worse by tariffs on wood from Canada. Thus, North American builders are researching alternatives to wood. Some are switching to cold-formed steel (CFS) framing and trusses on their projects.
“Functionally, the cost of cold-formed steel has always been competitive with wood,” says Larry Williams, executive director, Steel Framing Industry Association (SFIA). “But right now, builders can get the quality and superior performance of steel and a huge savings on framing their projects.”
