I went to Lowe's yesterday to purchase 7/16 OSB paneling. To my utter surprise, the price had spiked up to $14 per sheet(same at Home Depot and Ace Hardware. What gives with these crazy prices. Last year at this time OSB was cheaper than sheet rock, about $8 - $9 dollar per sheet.
I live in Southwest Arkansas and am using the OSB to sheet my garage wall. I am afraid to use sheet rock as the climate is so wet out here. What gives with these crazy prices and will we ever see the price come back down to a more reasonable rate?
