    Default Where do you get your materials from ???


    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 ?

    Cheers

    Michael

    I shop locally at independents such as Thistle Timber and Building Supplies or Lothian Building Supplies occasionally using The Paint Shed 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
