Would be interested to know where you guys get your materials from ?

Do you go to B&Q, Builders Merchants, On-line Drylining Stores, or specialist drylining centres local to you ?

:confused:

PPG Architectural Coatings Ltd, formerly Kalon, formerly Leyland Paints.
I wonder what they will be called next year?

I shop locally at independents such as Thistle Timber and Building Supplies (http://www.thistletimbersupplies.co.uk/) or Lothian Building Supplies (http://www.lothianbuildingsupplies.com/) occasionally using The Paint Shed (http://www.thepaintshed.com/) and Leyland/Johnstones/Kalon???? or whatever they are called now for painting and taping materials.

Why dont you chat up these guys about stocking your USG taping compounds because they dont sell it.

I use different merchants for my materials, all depends on the price they are charging. I always shop around to get the best deal

Use Minster now, as most of their stuff is cheaper than CCF, CPD and as for Jewsons, probably just as cheap as B&Q, probably B&Q are cheaper

Got to get some prices off RGB, (Rawle, Gammon & Baker) as some of their off the shelf prices are very good, only problem is they are only Devon or Westcountry orientated, and we work nationally
