Materials shortages are starting to kick in now. The only good thing is that some of the 'big' firms are getting a taste of their own medicine and finding out that the old adage that there's always someone bigger is true.

Materials shortages.
 
We are noticing it down here now as the DIY shops are running out of cement and building sand. Couldnt get hardwall last week.

I have now bought all of the materials for teh rest of my "gentle" renovation and storing it till then

What you struggling with
Nothing personally, we're past the point where it affects things much. Quite a few trades are moaning though and some are struggling to get enough volume on site to make their money.

The company we use were struggling to get the glazing units a while back. Then they started having problems getting the frames because the factories couldn't get enough polymers to mould them.

It's all a bit weird as there's plenty of work but a shortage of the stuff to do it.

Timber is definitely scarce as had to put up a new fence and if it wasn’t for my dad being a old costumer (he’s retired now) at the timber merchant wouldn’t of got any.
The stands were about 50% empty and they are one of the biggest trade fencing suppliers in my area.

Steel's the same, some RSJ sizes are hard to find at the moment.

It was about to happen post brexit, but I reckon things will go back to normal soonish. I heard lots of people having problems with returning goods like clothes etc if the company is based in eu as not every company is willing to cover border expenses. So then you are left with choice of paying it yourself which will cost you more than what you paid for it.
