Buying Building Supplies

Even if you have a designer or a general contractor assisting you with your renovation or build, you may still have to purchase building supplies. And whether you’re building new, or completing a renovation, it’s nice to be able to cut back on expenses because, let’s face it, renovations are expensive. 

Here are some helpful tricks and tips to help you save money on building supplies. 

The Builders Discount

The first tip we’re giving you is to always ask if there’s a builders discount (and if you qualify, of course) when purchasing any building materials or supplies. While you may not always qualify, we always recommend asking in case any discounts are applicable to you based on the amount of work you’re completing. 

Besides, if you don’t ask, the answer will always be no! 

Depending on your building supply store, hardware store, or box store, you may be required to purchase a minimum amount of supplies in order to qualify for a discount. So while you may not always qualify, it truly never hurts to inquire!

If you don’t qualify for a builders discount – that’s ok! There are several more tips to help you save money where you can when purchasing building supplies.

Doorstep Delivery

Do you know what the difference is between doorstep delivery and sidewalk delivery? Well, the difference is probably fairly obvious, but it could mean either creating or saving a lot of extra work. 

Doorstep delivery is exactly what it sounds like – building supplies delivered to the front door of your home. This is a great delivery option for those who live on the fourth floor of an apartment, or anyone who doesn’t have a full crew to help carry the products. 

The alternative, sidewalk delivery. Again, this is exactly what it sounds like – building supplies delivered to your sidewalk, and not any closer. The catch here is to verify with your building supply company or hardware store which option they offer, because you could save some money (and valuable time) by having your supplies delivered right to your door. 

Deals

If you’re able to plan your renovation/build ahead of time, the quickest and easiest way to save money is to shop for building supply products when they’re on sale. If time allows, research the products you need and keep track of when they go on sale. 

Something to keep in mind – holidays like Labour Day and Victoria Day usually bring major sales! Keep an eye out around special occasions so you don’t miss out on saving some money for your renovation or build.

Saving some extra cash during renovations is always welcome! However, you may be stuck storing your discounted items if you purchase them ahead of when the renovation is set to begin. This can be problematic if you don’t have the space to store the items, especially if they’re larger (like wood or drywall, for example). If you don’t have the space, you can still search for smaller supplies on sale, such as paint or screws/nails.

Payment Options

We all know renovations are expensive, so if you can’t pay for all of your supplies up front, ask your building supply company if you can open an account. After you’ve established your credit, you should receive a 30 day credit term (sometimes the number of days varies). 30 day terms mean you have 30 days to pay for the items. Often, suppliers will offer you additional discounts if you can pay for your items up front.

Ask your building supply store for more ways you can save money on your renovation!
