your end, but be sure to look for advocates that will offer you support. A building
material supplier should be one of them.
Build A Relationship With A Local Supplier
Of course, your contractor already knows who the suppliers are in your market,
but there are advantages to having a direct relationship with a material supplier
before your project even begins.
Setting expectations about your project while you're still refining your vision is a
smart move. You know the look you're trying to achieve, but talking with a supplier
can afford you unbiased advice on the best materials for the job. They'll
also give you early insight into cost, helping you to compare brands and even
offer viable substitutes that could shave thousands off your job.
Talking to a supplier about your remodel could even help you decide who to
hire to perform the work. With over 50 years in the Lancaster market, GR
Mitchell has sold materials to thousands of construction professionals. We've
grown to get a feel for the skills each contractor excels at, who is trustworthy,
who develops a good rapport with their customer, and who we'd feel comfortable
recommending for kitchen renovations, basement refinishing, home additions,
and beyond.
And while we specialize in supplying the pros, we're built for homeowners, too.
With 11,000 square feet of retail space, GR Mitchell also serves as your local
hardware store with an assortment that rivals big box with a hometown feel.
An Extension of Your Contractor
Some of the larger remodeling outfits that you could commission may have
their own offices and showrooms, but we know there is also a lot of appeal to
working with smaller, independent contractors. A good material supplier will act
as a partner of their customers, extending resources that help a contractor's
business serve the homeowner.
