Global Supply Chain Concerns and Delays

An open letter to our current and future customers.

It is hard to believe that it has been 19 months since the world as we knew it, changed forever.  With our new normal on the horizon and restrictions starting to lift here in Saskatchewan, it is hard not to be eager moving forward post pandemic life.  Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, global shortages, and increased consumer demands, we here in Saskatchewan are really starting to see the full effects on our housing market.

We are receiving information updates from our suppliers, partners, and competitors daily with news about shortages due to many factors.  Closures and reduced working capacities of factories around the world and concerns from the ocean freight industry are just two examples of the global supply chain issues we are facing today. We have received updates regarding shortages for lumber, micro-chips for appliances, plastics, garage doors, steel and even furniture. All these factors will likely be the root cause of delays in your new home build.

Our commitment and promise to you:

Sometimes no news is all we can provide. We understand the concerns you have regarding shortages and supply chain issues in the market. We appreciate that buying and building a home requires a great deal of trust and can sometimes be incredibly stressful. We will continue to strive to provide our Daytona Families and staff with information as it comes readily available.

We are committed to our Daytona standards of building and providing you a home that is crafted with care and built with quality. We continue to work with our trade partners that we trust and have built relationships with over the years. We will continue to work with our suppliers to provide you with the best prices and timelines within our capacities.  We will continue to monitor the global concerns and update you here on our website and provide your sales consultants with information as it becomes available. Communication is key while entering this phase of the supply chain concerns and global impacts here in Saskatchewan. Our team is working overtime to secure the materials needed to provide you a home we can both be proud of. Currently, delays are likely for your new home build. Please plan your move accordingly as we cannot guarantee a possession timeline given these circumstances.

Thank you so much for your understanding and patience, as we navigate these unchartered territories in home building. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your sales representative to discuss further.
