Everything you need to know about finding a Building Supplier

Whether it is a small, independently owned company or a major chain, building suppliers provide all the materials and services that are needed to complete home improvement projects.

Building suppliers can provide services such as delivery of materials, cutting and dressing of timber, sharpening of tools and free quotes on your building project. Suppliers can also provide prefabricated wall frames and roof trusses, and they can supply the machinery required to complete the project. Some building suppliers also stock recycled materials, which can be a great option if you are environmentally conscious or want a more rustic, heritage look to your project.

Most building suppliers cater to both the trade industry (such as builders, plumbers and electricians) and the home renovator, meaning that you have the option of having your professional order supplies or ordering them yourself.

It is a good idea to research the price differences between ordering the supplies yourself and having it ordered for you. If the professional is ordering materials, they will be able to get them at a reduced price but be aware that they may include mark-up in their quote. If you order the materials yourself, you will have to pay retail price.

If ordering materials from a supplier, take into considerations factors such as the knowledge you have and the time required for the materials to be delivered. Before ordering any materials, ensure that you have gotten several different quotes, and that the supplier is reputable.

How Much Do Building Supplies Cost?

There is a wide variance in the cost of building supplies, and you can review the prices from specialist outlets who are dedicated to a single product to wholesalers who stock everything you may need. The pros of a specialist outlet is that you often can source high end or custom materials though often at a cost premium. Wholesalers selling building supplies will often have a large range of products on offer and serve the budget to mid-range market very well. If you are looking to specify high end materials and products in your home then a specialist outlet is probably where you should be looking. If cost is a real concern then general building supply outlets will be your first port of call.
