“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. The price jump is unlikely to be the last.”

Steel can’t burn, because it contains no elements that can serve as fuel. Steel provides no means for a fire to start, it does not contribute to fire growth or fire spread, and it does not contribute to the generation of smoke and toxic combustion products in fires. Building codes recognize steel framing as a non-combustible construction material. Steel remains non-combustible throughout the entire life cycle of the building – during building construction, occupation and future renovation and repair.
