If the pandemic gave you the impetus to try to  catch up on home remodeling projects, or even just buy a couch or a new dishwasher, you might have encountered some obstacles along the way.

When the quarantine began, the supply chain was seriously affected. Contractors struggled to find supplies, prices skyrocketed and there has even been difficulty finding qualified employees to do the jobs if supplies are at the ready.

Frustrated? Hudson Valley contractors are feeling it, too, and many say these issues don’t seem to be going away anytime soon.

“On the supply front, it’s a different battle every day,” said Chuck Petersheim of Catskill Farms, which designs, builds and sells homes. “Overnight, for instance, wood siding for our homes became unavailable countrywide. Last summer, it became hard to find pressure-treated wood. Now it’s available, but it’s five times the cost when it was pre-pandemic.”
