Steel prices increase, construction people cry

The price of iron and steel has increased rapidly in recent years, making civil construction investors cry, because construction costs are very high.

Mr. Ngo Quoc Dong, residing in Phu Cat (Quoc Oai, Hanoi) was about to start building a house, when the price of construction steel recently increased sharply, making him restless. “I don’t know if the price of steel will increase again, just over this week the price has increased by a million dong/ton,” worried Mr. Dong.

As expected, Mr. Dong and his wife spent about 1.7 billion VND to build a 3-storey house with Thai roof architecture on an area of ​​70 m2. Normally, iron and steel money accounts for 20% of the whole house’s cost, such an increase in construction steel prices can generate several tens of millions of dong.

“Knowing that the price of steel is so high, before Tet, I spent tens of millions of deposits to buy in advance, then the price of steel was only 17 million VND/ton. At this time, I have to give up,” Dong regretted.

Not to mention, the finishing stage, all kinds of iron such as fine art, aluminum and glass doors also increased sharply,” said Mr. Vui.
