PRICES OF BUILDING MATERIALS

PRICES OF BUILDING MATERIALSIn recent years, prices of building materials in Lagos have undergone a significant price increase for several reasons, higher raw materials, stringent standards, new thermal regulations.

Individuals and real estate marketers, developers and investors are always in frenzy about purchasing or acquiring landed properties in choice areas within Lagos and other parts of Nigeria, this is due to the burgeoning real estate market.

The cost of building too isn’t overlooked but can be quite cumbersome when making inquiries about where to get these building materials and how their prices, now developers scrutinize fervently, building material price quotes before releasing funds.

The building material prices on this list carries the current prices from various markets where these materials are sold.

It would be worth to note that these prices are not stable but within ranges, as it is not possible for all markets to sell at exactly the same prices.
