Supply chain issues that we have all heard about for months continue to present challenges across many industries, and natural stone suppliers are no exception. At Garrity Stone, Inc., serving our customers remains our top priority, and we will do everything in our power to maintain uninterrupted service. There may be some delays in the foreseeable future that are impacting stone suppliers all over, but we will navigate these delays to the best of our ability. Here is a little bit about what is happening, and our pledge to our customers.
Supply in DemandLike many other industries, the natural stone industry is facing unprecedented demand. We have seen record-setting new construction projects, as well as real estate transactions that have resulted in home remodeling activity on a larger than ever scale. It is especially challenging since we are your Indianapolis all-natural stone supplier, and have a 4-acre yard to fill with flagstone, limestone, boulders, and aggregates for our customer’s projects. Throughout these supply shortages, we will continue to strive to offer a wide variety of durable, natural stone products to keep your hardscaping elements looking professional for years to come.
Everyone seems to be affected by these temporary shipping delays, and that may not change for a while. The supply chain is under a lot of pressure, as there is a shortage of shipping containers that transport raw materials to the USA. This has also led to price increases for the shipping and transportation of goods. Many businesses that serve home remodeling and construction needs have been waiting longer to receive shipments. We understand that communication is key, and will keep our customers informed of any delays that we experience which could impact the timeline of projects.
