Miscellaneous and additional costs


You can choose to supply your own materials or ask the tradespersons to supply them.

Mark up and Commission

Tradespeople will usually hold trade accounts with suppliers. These accounts enable them to buy materials at a lower price than retail price i.e. what members of the public would buy them at. In some cases this may be up to 60% cheaper. As with any supplier it is standard practice for the tradespeople to mark up the cost of materials. This is usually around a 25% – 35% mark up on purchase price.

Collection and Delivery Charges

Trades suppliers may make a charge to deliver materials to your property, or the tradespersons may have to visit the supplier to collect the materials. In both cases the cost may be passed on to the customer.

Buying your own materials
If you choose to buy your own materials you should discuss with the tradespersons exactly what is required. Keep in mind that it will be your responsibility to ensure the materials are on site when they are needed and if they are delivered incomplete or damaged it will be up to you to sort things out. You may be liable for tradespersons idle time if materials you are supplying are not available when required. Where a matter of a particular style or design is to be chosen we would always recommend that you choose the item your self.

Where a tradespersons is required to pay for parking these charges will usually be passed on to the customer.
