where to get materials,


vinyl siding, roofing shingles, finished hard wood flooring, gutters

Just wondering, since I've never actually looked for these sorts of materials, where is the best (cheapest) place to get them? Big box store?

I have a relative with a contractor's license if it's an "exclusive" place to buy...I'll have to ask him as well.

We get our vinyl siding and roofing at Harvey
Hardwood at Lumber Liquidators
Gutters Through Eagle gutters.

I do not know if you have any of these building supply companies near you, but you can compare the prices. (With similar suppliers and big name home stores)

FWIW - We (contractors) can get additional discounts for having accounts with them and also volume discounts. Maybe your relative could help you out with that as well?

I have a "secret source" auction in PA. If you are near South Central PA let me know and I'll PM you the details. For selfish reasons I am not going to post the details publicly!
