Friday, November 13th, 2015

Traditionally people would go to the big builders merchants who will change what they want as they know people will pay it. But now with the use of the internet customers have a much wider range of choices as well as looking online in the comfort of their own homes to find materials they need for the best prices.

It is always important to remember that you are finding the right materials for the job, as online buying can be risky if you click and buy without checking it is the correct item. For example, if you are buying timber to build a rabbit hutch in the garden then it is essential this timber is treated to help protect it again the weather. Untreated timber will rot quickly if used outside so these minor details could make a big difference to what you need it for. When using timber is it also important that you go for a thickness that meets the demands of a job. The size of timber represents the strength so 8×2 would be stronger than 4×2. A key factor when looking for any product is how much is costs and how quickly it will be delivered. Kikbuild are know for there competitive prices in supplying all sizes and lengths for any job. They also have great customer services who would be happy to guide you towards the right product you and help with any questions or queries you may have.

Sourcing the right materials

Friday, May 1st, 2015

If you’re thinking of doing any building work, whether it is yourself or through a contractor, it is important to know what you’re getting yourself into. This does not mean to turn your head and necessarily hire some to do it all for you but instead to advise and guide you to a successful building experience. There are many things you need to consider for example; you need to plan ahead of what you will be doing, what materials you need and how long each stage will take so you know when you need the materials. This article will take you step by step to give you a detailed understanding for your own projects.

The materials

When looking for materials you need to know exactly what materials you need as even something slightly different will make a big difference to the project. Sometime it is also worth knowing that just because it is cheaper that does not mean that it is the same, this also applies to things that are more expensive. It is important you check exactly what it is you are buying and that it is the material you need for the best price available as no one wants to spend more than they have too. Sometimes big suppliers can be difficult and might overcharge for small jobs so it is always worth checking online for smaller business such as KIKBUILD depending on what it is you are buying. If you plan ahead and get all the materials you need in advance it will make the job a lot easier and by buying in bulk you might also save yourself some money. You also need to take into consideration that material requirements quite often change during a building project so you may need to adapt your materials to fit.

General construction materials and groundwork’s

One thing to consider when sourcing construction materials should be local merchants, especially if the construction method will involve traditional masonry. Both national chains and independent local outlets can offer advice about materials for a project and useful tips for the job. Concrete is used in almost all building projects so it is important you have more than enough and that you have safe conditions to mix (hand mixing area or cement mixer) away from the rest of materials. It is also necessary to make sure you have the right type of concrete suitable for the job that you are using it for.

Primary structure

The primary structure of any building is usually made of timber, walls and roofing. This means sourcing the best materials for your job. When looking at timber it is important that any externals materials are treated to make them last longer. If you are willing to spend the extra money treated timber is recommended. It is also important that you take the consideration of what it is being used for. For example if it is for support of a roof then you need to have a fairly thick piece of timber so to ensure it has more than enough strength. If in any doubt seek advice from a structural engineer, architect, building control, local builder or supplier, but it would be better to go too thick than too thin as the last thing anyone would want is for the structure to not be safe otherwise you will be back to square one.

For bigger items such as bricks, concrete and tiles it would be best to work out exactly how much you need before you order. This way you might get a better price on the materials and then when it comes to the job you have everything you need to get it done. You may also need to contact some suppliers directly. If you have chosen one of the modern or alternative construction methods that emphasise ‘off-site’ construction, most of the structural materials will be coming from a specialist manufacturer.

Where to look

Once you know exactly what you want we advise looking around to find the right materials and see where you can get the best price. At this point it is important to remember that you want to use the highest quality materials if you want it to last as some of the cheaper options will deteriorate after just a couple of years and you will notice the difference. This is why it is important to check the quality of the materials and even compare to other sources that sell the same materials to make sure you are getting the best materials for your money. You can still get high quality materials for low competitive prices if you know where to look. Big businesses like ourselves will have our own places to seek materials due to the amount we buy but because we are a friendly local business we like to help our customers to get the best for less. We would advise checking with the main big suppliers of materials and see what the best prices they can offer you but if not we can recommend a company we know who use high quality materials for a competitive price for all.

Whether you are a trader or just your average person who fancies a little project KIKBUILD will be able to help. They offer friendly advice, quick delivery and use the highest quality materials. Even if you are looking to save money you might find buying through them will be cheaper than buying cheap poor quality materials. It is always worth checking but this is a website we can recommend that look after their customers and offer very competitive prices. We hope this article has helped you understand what is needed when trying to source materials and what is required when taking on any building work. If you have any questions about anything in this article then get in touch and we would be happy to help.
