Materials Supplied by Others

We prefer to supply our own materials, in order to ensure that we can meet our customers’ expectations of a high-quality trouble-free installation.
We apply a mark-up to materials that we supply. This mark-up covers a whole range of ancillary services, which we appreciate are not uppermost in customers’ minds at the time of quotation.

We understand that when budgets are tight, it can be tempting to look for bargains on-line, and then to engage tradespeople on a labour only basis to fit them.

Whilst we are prepared to work with either system, experience suggests that it is important to be clear from the very start where potential pitfalls may be hidden, and where “saving money” may turn out to be an expensive option. We regret that we are not able to accept any costs arising from delay, faults, incompatibility or other problems caused by materials supplied by others.

We provide good quality materials from reputable suppliers who offer enforceable warranties and who have a track record of supplying good service. In our experience this greatly reduces project delays, stress and worry.

The table below illustrates some of the issues that our experience suggests may arise, and what the cost implications may be for you.
