Who are your favorite online suppliers?
I’m sniffing out a story for Fine Homebuilding on how progressive builders are acquiring their progressive materials for remodeling and new construction.
There are lots of online suppliers for building materials these days: Conservation Technology, Energy Federation, Energy Conscious, Small Planet Workshop, GreenDepot, even Amazon.
So, are you using online suppliers for specialty materials like air sealing tapes, insulation, housewrap, and so forth? If so, what are some of your favorite outlets? Are you ever going beyond the small orders (a few rolls of this or that) and getting large shipments from distant suppliers rather than from your local suppliers?
For those who are still relying heavily on lumberyards, are you finding your local yards to be pretty helpful in terms of ordering specialty items?
Looking forward to your thoughts and the challenges you’re facing in finding the right materials to build responsibly and progressively.
