“There must be a better way to get high quality building materials into the customer’s hands more easily, and for less money.”
This idea is what motivated two friends Jeff Booth and Rob Banks to create BuildDirect, an online building materials company that is transforming the building materials industry. With the use of innovative technology and thinking, we sell flooring, tile, decking, siding, outdoor living products, and many others, and for less than you’d pay at retail.
Premium quality building materials are brought to market with fewer parties involved from the manufacturing stage. This means fewer costs, and customers pay less for the materials that will help them undertake transformations of their own – the creation of their dream homes, and all within a reasonable budget.
We hope to connect with you on Google+, and find out what kinds of transformations you’re making to your spaces.
