How to buy building materials

Ratio of quality and affordable price

The quality of the purchased construction products is obliged to control the foreman involved in the construction works. In large-scale works, it is best to resort to purchases at factories or to purchase material from large wholesale companies. Thus, savings can amount to 20% relative to the project, and thanks to large turnover of companies, high quality of products is guaranteed.

Construction materials are also presented in high-end stores, markets, small trading pavilions and large-scale building hypermarkets. The range of assortment is conventionally identical at all trading platforms, but the price policy differs sometimes at times.

In small shops with a total area of up to 150 m2, prices for products are often inflated. If there is little need for material it is acceptable to go to such a trading platform. For example, you need just one bag of cement and a couple of squares of tiles.

In stores with a slightly larger area, the range can be wider and more affordable. In typical stores, the price-quality ratio is acceptable, provided there is a willingness to wait for delivery of the material up to a few days. Waiting times will justify themselves with good prices, sometimes even wholesale.

Construction hypermarkets with an extensive range of products are interested in cooperation with specialists and wholesalers. Accordingly, construction material in large volumes, it is more profitable to purchase on large trading platforms. Of course, discounts and pricing in hypermarkets are tightly regulated, but there is always room for negotiations and special arrangements.

Purchase of materials as needed Acquisition of

construction products as necessary is regulated by the fact that the exact quantity of consumables is quite difficult predict. In frame construction technology it is recommended to purchase materials at once. But small repair works and large-scale erection of piece materials may eventually require additional purchase or leave unclaimed an impressive balance.

It is not recommended to purchase materials that may be needed only when finishing. Wallpaper, tile, parquet should not be purchased when laying the walls, because in the end the room can be larger, and typical products go out of production. Among other things, the purchased products require special storage conditions, which are not always possible to provide.

Nuances of acquisition of construction materials

At the start of purchase it is necessary to carefully compare all prices between sales platforms. In this option, a pre-prepared list of required building materials will come to help. The process will take a lot of time, so it’s right to use specialized directories.

Often the price categories for identical products are the same in many stores, hypermarkets. In this case, it is necessary to keep an eye on discounts, sales and promotions. For example, there are often sales on cut-off and piece material, like linoleum and tile remains.

In any case, it is worth heeding the advice of a foreman or people who have gone through identical construction work. The cost of construction materials sometimes decreases slightly in summer due to increased competition and large-scale demand.
