It’s no secret that we love the glue industry.
But there’s one thing that we can’t stand about it: the price.
Glue is the industry’s staple, but it’s often at a premium.
According to a survey conducted by the National Association of Home Builders, the average price of a new home constructed in the U.S. is about $300,000.
That’s up about 30% from the average home price of $250,000 in the same time frame a decade ago.
The good news is that we’re finally starting to see some improvement in terms of affordability.
The problem is that most of the companies making the glue are owned by large corporations, and their profits come from selling the glue itself to consumers.
And these large corporations aren’t likely to take kindly to competition.
This year, the National Home Builder’s Association (NHBA) released a report titled “The Glue Bubble,” which detailed how some companies, including Home Depot, Lowe’s, Lowe Home Improvement, and Lowe’s Home Improvement Network, are making large profits off the glue market.
In a statement to The Verge, Lowe said the NHBA report was “completely inaccurate” and that “no one is making a profit on glue.”
Home Depot also pointed out that it’s a member of the NHBD, a group of retailers that include Home Depot and Home Depot Superstore, but the group doesn’t make any money off the product.
Lowe’s pointed out in a statement that its “significant share of the adhesive market” has gone up since the NHBEA report was released.
The NHBA’s report is based on surveys that ask about the price of homes, not the glue they use.
But we think it’s safe to say that the glue bubble is starting to widen.
