That's right. We have worked for 29 years
to find the best Material Suppliers of
deck, porch and sunroom building materials (including windows
and doors) and establish a wonderful working relationship
with them. One of these Material Suppliers
offers the best pressure treated wood we
have ever used (Madison). I also have suppliers that handle
GeoDeck, vinyl and composite railings, Azek Procell PVC
decking, and Gossen PVC decking. All suppliers have exemplary
service (my Customer Service Representatives really know
what they are doing and work very hard to make my clients
happy)... and outstanding prices for many of the
|What is more, in most cases they do not charge
a delivery fee for my clients... and (are you ready for
this?)... you may qualify to receive a discount which lowers
your cost even more.
"OK... but how much will I save"?
Hey, keep your shirt on... I can't tell you
exactly but I will tell you this much: Use my way
Deck, Porch, Sunroom Price Worksheet to estimate cost
of materials for a deck, screen porch, front porch or sunroom.
The resulting estimated materials cost will come pretty
close to east coast prices if you walk in off the street
into a local Lowes or Home Depot. However, I have recently
been told by two clients that the actual material cost from
my supplier has come in well below the Excel
Deck, Porch, Sunroom Price Worksheet estimate. One gentleman
who purchased GeoDeck decking, vinyl railing and pressure
treated wood (all substructures have to be pressure treated)
from my suppliers told me his total material bill came to
10% less than the Excel estimate. Another
client who used only my pressure treated supplier said she
paid 20% less. So, all other things being
equal, you could save from 10%-20% off local lumber yard
prices with my service. But PLEASE do not hold me to these
savings. Suppliers change their prices constantly... and
each deck or porch is different. These are estimates only.
"I like that. But... what's the
Does there always have to be a "catch"? OK, OK there
are a couple:
1) You have to live within their delivery radii which is central and northern
Virginia, DC, Maryland, Delaware, southern Pennsylvania, and eastern West
Virginia, or, if you prefer, you can pick the materials up yourself if
you live outside those areas.
2) You have to order your pressure treated lumber,
composite or PVC decking, and/or Vinyl
Railings or outdoor lighting from
us. And you must use our handy Order
Forms to qualify.
"I don't have to get my deck from you?
Let me get this straight: I can use your own material suppliers
and get a discount off list price on some items and be getting
my deck from somebody who works out of his pickup and chews
tobacco or even build it myself? That's it?!?"
That's it. This service is designed for folks who are getting
someone else to build their project, but still want to get
excellent materials for less... and know their materials will
have good supplier customer service to back it up. If you
fax or email me your order (Order
Form provided for your convenience), by agreement
with my Material Supplier Customer Representatives, they will
give you a discount on select items (up to 35% off some items)
off their list prices on materials you order from their firms.
It's good for them, good for us (because they still pay me
a sales commission), and very good for you.
