Who knows how long it will take for rebar tie wire production levels to return to normal again
I don’t know how I feel about all of the construction going up in this area. On the one hand, it made my property value increase and gave me some serious equity on my house that I didn’t have before, but is it worth the land being razed all over the county? We lost thousands of acres of woodlands to what is now going to be a dozen or so different subdivisions and apartment complexes. These aren’t trivial plots of land that weren’t seeing any use. Many of them were in areas bordering state parks and were easily accessible by hiking trails. I lost many of my favorite hiking spots due to all of this suburban development. While I used to drive by miles of wooded land, now I see dirt fields that are intended to be brand new subdivisions once they’re finally complete. But with the supply line issues on rebar tie wire, I’m not sure if these houses are going to be complete anytime soon. Because they’re made out of cinder block, these houses are reinforced with black annealed rebar tie wire. Without the rebar rod and bar wire for the housing wall reinforcement, you can’t actually build the houses. Unfortunately, I might be looking at eye sores for the next two years until the production levels for various kinds of rebar tie wire increases again. Who knows how long it will take for rebar tie wire production levels to return to normal again. Gasoline prices are finally dropping, but who knows how long it will take for them to drop further. It’s the same idea with both concepts.
