How Does Nigeria’s Building Materials Cost?

There are two or three factors that determine the price of building materials in Nigeria, besides the fluctuation of the economy. These include the caliber of the materials, the level of market demand, the make, and the location.

Don’t worry, we will check them out.

  • Product quality

It is one of the major factors that drive the price of building materials across the nation. High-grade types of equipment tend to be more expensive than lower-grade materials.

Unfortunately, some vendors sell lower-grade materials at exorbitant prices.

For exemplar, if an original kitchen sink is sold at ₦45, 000 and then a low quality at ₦30, 000, such a vendor can sell a lower quality kitchen sink at either 40k or 45k, which is the exact price of the original.

  • Product brand

The product brand also plays a role in influencing commodity prices on the market. Whereas some brands are expensive, others are cheaper.

Most brands that are known to produce high-quality building equipment are pricey to buy likewise for lower quality products.

  • Location

Prices for building materials vary from region to region. For example, the price of building equipment in the north is comparatively low relative to the west and south-south.

We’re talking about places like Lagos, Port Harcourt, Delta, Ibadan, et cetera where building materials are a bit costly.

  • Season

The change in season has a great impact on the building materials. The cost of materials is often low in the rainy season and becomes costly in periods of drought.

The reason why the prices are changing that way is best known to the vendors.

Building materials are available across the country at different prices. The ones we outlined here are only a few of them. Please note that these prices may vary according to the aforementioned factors.

You can still visit the marketplace if you want and do more surveys on their prices.
