Conventional methods of construction (Standard Block & Wood) have two major problems today:
The Chamber of Commerce's quarterly report also shows contractors face increasing challenges due to COVID-19:
—and about to spike even higher

Lumberyards and homebuilders alike have delayed buying lumber from sawmills in hopes the price of the sky-high commodity would finally come back down to earth. It hasn’t budged, and now the buying rush is on ahead of spring and summer projects. This influx of buyers is only further driving up the price. On Friday, the price of lumber per thousand board feet jumped to $1,048, according to Random Lengths. That’s an all-time high, and up 193% from a year ago. That price jump is unlikely to be the last. On Monday, the May futures contract price per thousand board feet of two-by-fours jumped $32 to $1,158. That uptick would have been higher had circuit breakers not been halted 20 minutes into trading—something that occurs when the commodity is up more than $32 during a single trading day.
Advantages of building with Omnicrete are:
Advantages of Living in an Omnicrete Building are:
We use AAC (Autoclaved Aerated Concrete) block not standard CMU (Concrete Masonry Unit) block used in conventional construction. AAC is manufactured locally and in plentiful supply. The cost of our system has been very stable though these last months as compared to traditional methods of construction.
Plus we build perfectly straight, level and plumb walls which is easier for the trades (electrical, plumbing, HVAC, etc.) and less expensive to finish!
Don't delay your project. Build with Omnicrete who has access to unlimited supply of building materials used in it's system. Why do we have materials and other builders don't? We do not use, wood, CMU block, drywall or shingles.
Our costs over the past months of inflation have been in the single digits compared to wood which is 193% and climbing. Since many builders are shifting over to CMU Block due to the scarcity of wood, CMU plants are having trouble keeping up with demand. Applying the laws of supply and demand, when demand out paces supply, costs tend to naturally increase.
