Building material shortage delays new home construction

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — If you are waiting for your new home to be built, you could be waiting for a lot longer than you had previously expected.

Supply shortages are causing delays in the home building industry and they could soon be getting worse.

Some people are having to wait several weeks to several months to begin building.

Not only do these delays create headaches for homebuyers, but also home builders.

Cyndi Koester’s parents are building a new home in Mesquite and like many families, they are facing delays.
