Lumber, heavy machinery, tools, copper wiring, and more are all disappearing from jobsites at alarming rates. With materials prices remaining high, the losses add up quickly for builders, developers, and construction jobsite managers.

Supply chain disruptions can mean even greater losses as replacements may not be immediately available, throwing a wrench into timelines, scheduling tradespeople, and bottom lines.
