Buying Building Materials


When I built my house 20 years ago you had to use the phone or fax to get quotes for building materials. Now it is a lot easier because you can use email or the internet to get prices. To save money you need to shop around to get the best deals on different products. Do not use a single Builders Merchant as you will end up paying more money. I have put together a list of suppliers who you should consider to get your Selfbuild Building Materials.


Always consider Wickes and B&Q as there prices have VAT included. Screwfix have some very good prices on hardware and smaller items.

 

Just recently I was project managing my sons house renovation. The main bulk of the plastering materials came from a local builders merchant (Rightways - Nelson and Blackburn). The bathroom suite, doors and Kitchen was from Wickes (using a special offer 20 off when you spend 100 we saved 340 a great saving when you are on a limited budget). The MDF skirting and architrave came from Howarth Timber. Central heating goods came from an internet supplier (MrCentralHeating) and we were never away from Screwfix. Light fittings, tiles and many small items came from internet suppliers or Ebay. So as you can see I used a lot of different suppliers for Building Materials to keep the cost as low as possible.
